Cocks Crow: Basketball Items

Here’s a couple of positive preseason press items for the Gamecock men’s basketball team.  Jason King from Yahoo! Sports has his preseason power rankings for the SEC out and he puts South Carolina at 4th best in the conference:

Not many people are talking about the Gamecocks, who could emerge as one of the nation’s top sleeper teams. Darrin Horn’s squad won 21 games last season but missed the NCAA tournament after faltering down the stretch. That may not happen this season thanks to the return of Dominique Archie and Devan Downey – both of whom withdrew from the NBA draft. Downey, who averaged 19.8 points and 4.5 assists last season, will be one of the top guards in America in 2009-10. Don’t be surprised if aggressive wing Lakeem Jackson blossoms into one of the SEC’s top freshmen.

Senior Devan Downey was also recently profiled in The Sporting News – click here to read. His favorite attribute about himself? His speed.  If you’re still in a basketball mood today, download this new wallpaper for your desktop with Downey:
