Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- With last week's official announcement that four basketball players would not be returning, former USC point guard and current radio talk show host Carey Rich stopped by the News19 studios to break down what it means for the Gamecocks going forward.

"The Captain"predicted that Bruce Ellington will be more of a role player this season as head coach Frank Martin has brought in some highly-touted point guards to run his offense his way.
