Ellington Gets His Gamecock Goodbye


By Sports Department

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- One of USC's all-time best athletes gets to say a proper goodbye to Gamecock fans. Tuesday, Ellington will be honored with Brenton Williams in Senior Night festivities before Carolina's final home basketball game against #1 Florida.

Ellington has missed most of his senior season of basketball after declaring early for the NFL Draft after the Gamecocks win over Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day.

Ellington will meet with fans on the concourse of the Colonial Life Arena from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. before the Florida game and during halftime.
