Damien Leonard Profile

2011 J.L. Mann High SG Damien Leonard went out the same way we saw him first four years ago as an eighth grader, with a bang and a victory. The 6'4 South Carolina signee powered the South Carolina All-Stars to a 87-84 victory over their North Carolina counterparts on Saturday in Socastee during the Carolinas All-Star Basketball Classic.

Leonard whose reputation was well known by his teammates and opponents didn't disappoint in the all-star environment. The future Gamecock poured in a game record 35 points in the win over the Tar Heel all-stars. Leonard drained the game winning 3-pointer with just 5 seconds left in the game.

On the night had him unofficially going 8-17 from 3-point range and 11-25 overall from the field.

The South Carolina boys squad had dropped 3 of the last 4 contests against North Carolina previously.

Leonard has continued to be a deadly marksman from the perimeter and it will be interesting to see how his career continues to develop under the tutelage of Darrin Horn and his staff in Columbia. Recommended Stories
