COLUMBIA, S.C. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢’Â¬” Sophomore guard Kaydra Duckett has decided to step away from team activities for the spring semester to focus on academics, South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley announced today.
The 5-foot-8 Columbia, S.C., product played in eight games this semester, including the SEC opener against Arkansas on Jan. 3.

South Carolina is back in action this afternoon, tipping off against No. 20/- Missouri at noon at Colonial Life Arena.
