Khadim Gueye Named To 2018 SEC Community Service Team
March 1, 2018

COLUMBIA, S.C. - In a continuing effort to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes beyond the field of competition, the SEC once again highlighted a Community Service Team for men's basketball for the 2017-18 season, the conference office released on Thursday in advance of next week's SEC Tournament in St. Louis. South Carolina sophomore Khadim Gueye has been named to the team this season for his efforts in the community.

Since arriving on campus at South Carolina, Gueye has been active in community outreach events, especially in joining his teammates in the annual 8K In 8 Days Campaign, which aims to reach 8,000 people within the State of South Carolina and the Columbia community during the summer. Gueye has helped with events involving the Special Olympics, the City of Columbia Parks and Recreation summer camps, and the Richland County Sheriff's Department, helping to run stations and teach the fundamentals of basketball. He has also visited veterans at the Dorn VA Hospital in town and spent time with kids from the Epworth Children's Home. Other community outreach events that Gueye has participated in throughout his career include a Basketball Madness event at Fort Jackson in Columbia, helping serve dinner at Transitions, and interacting with Gamecock fans at a pre-game football event.

On the court this season, Gueye has seen action in 17 contests for the Gamecocks. South Carolina concludes the regular season on the road at No. 14/15 Auburn on Saturday. Tip time is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on the SEC Network versus the Tigers.
