Guard Araion Bradshaw leaving South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina has lost its second guard this week after sophomore Araion Bradshaw decided to leave the national champions, coach Dawn Staley announced Friday.

Bradshaw, a 5-foot-6 point guard from Boston, was expected to push fellow freshman Tyasha Harris and junior Bianca Cuevas-Moore for time in the lineup last season. Harris, however, took control at the point to start Southeastern Conference play and helped the Gamecocks win the NCAA tournament.

Bradshaw averaged less than seven minutes of action in 24 games.

Earlier this week, freshman guard Haley Troup left the Gamecocks and transferred to Missouri.
