  NCAA1 - South Carolina adds Maine grad-transfer Myers  - by Eurobasket News - 7 hours ago

South Carolina is adding some immediate help in its follow-up season to a Final Four run. Wesley Myers (6'2''-G-95), a graduate transfer from Maine, is joining the Gamecocks' program, according to FanRag Sports' Jon Rothstein. The 6-foot-2 guard gives Frank Martin's team an instant infusion of scoring as they look to replace SEC player of the year Sindarius Thornwell and PJ Dozier. Myers 16.9 points per game last year on 43.7 percent shooting, including a 34.3 percent mark from 3-point range. He's the second grad-transfer Martin has picked up this offseason, joining Florida Atlantic's Frank Booker. The pair should help ease the transition from last year's success to a much less experienced team that returns just a pair of starters. Myers, though, doesn't arrive in Columbia without some notable history. Last year, after transferring to Maine from Niagara, was suspended after an altercation with a teammate, according to reports. He and teammate Marko Pirovic argued over locker room music, and the alleged ensuing altercation left Pirovic with a broken jaw, according to reports. Three other Maine players were suspended after telling a team athletic trainer that Pirovic had injured himself in a fall in the shower. Pirovic declined to press charges.
