Frank Martin suspends 2 from Gamecocks men's basketball team

By

COLUMBIA — University of South Carolina men’s basketball coach Frank Martin has suspended sophomore forward Demetrius Henry and freshman swingman Shamiek Sheppard for the remainder of the regular season.

“Our program is based on helping young people grow as individuals and helping them succeed off the court in life after college, and winning on the court as a member of our team,” Martin said. “We have expectations and responsibilities that we ask our players to meet on an every day basis, and unfortunately this has not happened. I will revisit the suspensions prior to the SEC Tournament.”

Henry is averaging eight points and 3.6 rebounds in 21 games this season. He has started 19 games. Sheppard has played in seven games and is averaging 1.6 points and 1.3 rebounds. He missed the start of the season following a offseason knee injury.
