COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Reserve guard David Beatty has been granted a full release from South Carolina’s men’s basketball program.

Gamecocks coach Frank Martin announced Beatty’s status on Monday.

Beatty, a 6-foot-2 guard from Philadelphia, played in 29 games off the bench this year, averaging less than 12 minutes a game. Beatty had a reputation as a scorer in high school, but shot just 25 percent this season (30-of-118).

Martin thanked Beatty for all he did for the program while here and wished him the best “on and off the court moving forward.”

Beatty is the third South Carolina reserve to leave the team since the season ended. Earlier, sophomore 7-foot forward Khadim Gueye and freshman 6-6 forward Ibrahim Famouke Doumbia announced their intentions to transfer.
