University of South Carolina junior quarterback Connor Shaw and redshirt freshman linebacker Cedrick Cooper underwent successful surgeries today, according to the Gamecocks' team physician, Dr. Jeffrey Guy. Shaw, a 6-1, 207-pounder from Flowery Branch, Ga., had surgery on his left foot, which he originally injured during the October 27 game against Tennessee. He aggravated the injury in the Outback Bowl win over Michigan on January 1. Cooper, a 6-2, 215-pounder from Lithonia, Ga., underwent surgery on his left knee, which he injured during the bowl mini-camp prior to Christmas. Both players will begin the rehab process over the next several weeks and are expected to make a full recovery. However, neither is expected to participate during the team's 2013 spring drills.
COLUMBIA, South Carolina — South Carolina's second-leading scorer Lashay Page won't play the rest of the season because of academic issues. The school announced the senior's status on Friday. First-year coach Frank Martin said on Thursday he'd hoped to have Page's "academic glitch" cleared up in a day or two, perhaps even in time for the start of Southeastern Conference play next week. Instead, the senior transfer from Southern Miss is done for the season. Athletic department spokeswoman Emily Feeney-Molinary said Martin would not be available to discuss the situation until after Saturday's game against South Carolina State. Page, 6-foot-2 guard, has started nine games and averaged 11.7 points. He's also been South Carolina's top foul shooter at 87.1 percent. At this time it is unclear if Page will be able to play next year. As of now I doubt it. AP
