COLUMBIA -- South Carolina has lost the leading scorer on the women's basketball team indefinitely following surgery for a knee injury suffered in a pickup game.
Coach Dawn Staley says she doesn't know when Nainima could return. Surgery was performed on Friday.
Nainima averaged 17 points a game last year, fifth in the Southeastern Conference.
The Gamecocks already enter the season without highly touted Kelsey Bone, the SEC's freshman of the year who transferred to Texas A&M.
Nainima led South Carolina in scoring 15 times last year and had 10 20-point games. She was a second-team all-SEC selection by league coaches. Staley said to lose such a key player was disappointing, but that the Gamecocks had other capable players who must step up as South Carolina tries to improve.
S.C. Am washed out
Due to inclement weather and poor course conditions at the Columbia Country Club, the second round of the 79th S.C. Amateur Championship was washed out and the event has been shortened to 54 holes.
A cut will be made following play today and the final round will be played Sunday.
