South Carolina is bringing the boys back to town.
USC announced on Tuesday that Sindarius Thornwell, P.J. Dozier and Duane Notice will be at Colonial Life Arena on Saturday to collect their Final Four rings at halftime of the Gamecocks’ game against Auburn. Tip-off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
That trio, because of their professional basketball duties, wasn’t available in November when the rest of the 2016-17 Gamecocks were honored with a ring ceremony.
Thornwell, Dozier and Notice will be in Columbia for USC’s “Legends Weekend” hosted by coach Frank Martin.
The annual event begins on Friday evening with a reception in downtown Columbia, and continues on Saturday when former players attend pre-game shoot-around and a Tip-Off Club event honoring the group.
