A native of Augusta, Ga., Harbin has played in every tournament this season and ranks second on the team and 20th in the SEC with a scoring average of 72.94. The second-team All-SEC selection is tied for second on the squad with six top-20 finishes and had a pair of top-five showings, including a win at the AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic.

NeSmith, a native of North Augusta, S.C., was named the SEC Co-Freshman of the Year and made the SEC All-Freshman Team. He led the Gamecocks in scoring with an average of 72.85, which ranks 18th in the SEC. He has recorded a team-high nine top-20 finishes.
