Student Assistant Coach

TeMarcus Blanton is in his first season serving as a student assistant coach for the Gamecocks. Blanton announced in May 2017 that he would no longer play basketball for the Gamecocks. Blanton suffered a serious hip injury during preseason of his freshman year at Carolina (2014-15) that required surgery and months of rehabilitation before he was able to re-join his teammates on the court for the 2015-16 campaign.

Blanton saw action in 29 career games in the Garnet and Black, averaging 1.4 points and 1.0 rebounds per game. He saw action in 21 contests during the historic 2016-17 Final Four campaign, which included a career-high 12 points in the contest at No. 5 Kentucky in late January.

Blanton has excelled in the classroom at Carolina, earning SEC Academic Honor Roll accolades each year of his career.
