Carter, Thompson to Represent Gamecock Basketball at SEC Meeting
COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina seniors Chico Carter Jr. and Olivia Thompson will travel to Birmingham for the Southeastern Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Leadership Council annual meeting at the SEC offices Friday and Saturday.
Carter is in his second season on the council, while Thompson is attending for fellow senior Laeticia Amihere, who is currently out of the country at Team Canada training camp ahead of the 2022 FIBA World Cup. She is in her third season on the council, serving as the chair of the women’s basketball leadership group last season.
The council consists of one male representative and one female representative from each of the SEC’s 14 institutions.

The Men’s Basketball Leadership Council and the Women’s Basketball Leadership Council comprise two components of the SEC Student-Athlete Leadership Council. The third component is the Football Leadership Council, which meets each February.
