Updates from South Carolina hoops head coach Darrin Horn's briefing on the weekly SEC teleconference on Monday.
The Gamecocks play Ole Miss on Tuesday night at Colonial Life Arena:
- Point guard Bruce Ellington "is not himself" with his nagging bruised calf, Horn said. The freshman is not as explosive, especially in transition, the coach said. The team's leading scorer has shot 23 percent and averaged 10 points a game during the team's five-game losing streak.
- Power forward Damontre Harris' bruised right knee is still tender and sore, Horn said. The freshman starter has averaged two points, four rebounds and less than a block a game during the losing streak.
- Starting shooting forward Lakeem Jackson appears to be on track to return Saturday's game at Georgia after resting his sore foot for three contests.
