Gamecocks in and out for Friday's season opener vs. Elon at Colonial Life Arena, according to head coach Darrin Horn:
- Sophomore guard Stephen Spinella will play after a sprained ankle kept him out of last week's exhibition win against Kentucky Wesleyan.
- Sophomore guard Ramon Galloway will be a game-time decision after recovering from a fractured right foot suffered days before practices began last month.
- Freshman forward Damontre Harris, the highest-rated recruit in Horn's six-member class this year, will sit out with a one-game academic suspension.
The starting five is the same as last week: F-Jackson/ F-Cooke/ F-Muldrow/ G-Richardson/ G-Ellington.
