University of South Carolina head men's basketball coach Frank Martin has announced incoming freshman guard Shamiek Sheppard has suffered an ACL tear in his right knee and is expected to miss the 2014-2015 campaign.
"We feel awful for Shamiek with his injury," stated Martin.
"He has worked so hard to put himself in position to play at South Carolina. We look forward to supporting him through his surgery and rehab this season."
Sheppard will undergo surgery for the torn ligament this week in Columbia.
Updates on Sheppard will be available shortly, and GamecockPride.com will keep you updated every step of the way.
