USC's Archie to miss rest of season

South Carolina senior forward Dominique Archie, who suffered a right knee sprain in South

Carolina's Nov. 22 game against Miami, will undergo season-ending knee surgery, Gamecock coach Darrin

Horn announced on Monday.

Archie is a former Josey star who pulled out of the NBA Draft earlier this year to play his senior season at South Carolina.

"After re-evaluation with the doctors, it has been determined that Dominique will be required to undergo season-ending

knee surgery," Horn said in a statement. "Despite the encouraging response from his rehab, it was determined that he will not be able to reach full

strength without surgery. Our number one priority throughout this process has been Dominique and his best interests, for

his future as an individual and a basketball player. We will continue to support and encourage him in any way we can."

Archie averaged 14.4 points and 6 rebounds in five games played this season.
