  1. Men's Basketball 1/14/2019 VIDEO: Frank Martin News Conference & Notes As Justin Minaya nears a return, the USC forward could have a decision to make Since the last time Justin Minaya appeared in a South Carolina game, the Gamecocks have changed in more than a few ways. There’s been lineup tweaks, more injuries, a long losing streak and, now, a significant winning streak. USC (8-7 overall) is 3-0 in the SEC as it approaches a Wednesday clash at Vanderbilt. Minaya, sidelined since suffering a knee injury in practice before Carolina’s loss to Wofford on Nov. 26, is “close” to being cleared again for practice, Frank Martin said Monday. “We need his quads to get to a place where they’re as strong as the hamstrings,” Martin said. “And he’s working at it really hard. He’s getting tested later (Monday) ... for that quad strength. And as soon as that quad gets to 85 percent of the other quad, he’ll be cleared to start doing stuff on the court.” Minaya had surgery in late November. Around that time, Martin had discussions with Minaya’s parents about the possibility of their son taking a medical redshirt. Once someone plays after Jan. 16 (Wednesday), he’s no longer eligible for the redshirt. That date factored into T.J. Moss’ decision, announced last week. Frustrated by his progress, Minaya met with Martin earlier this month. “Why are you worried, man?” Martin said he told Minaya, a sophomore swingman. “So you get cleared on Jan. 15 and you go out and you play and Jan. 18, you play a game and your knee swells up at night and now you’re out three weeks. You’re in the same boat. “Why are you worried about it? Don’t worry about it. Get yourself healthy, practice. When you feel good about your body and you’re in a place where they tell you you’re good to go, your body’s telling you you’re good to go, then you make the decision.” To redshirt or not. “I’m going to support what’s best for the young man and what his family wants to do,” Martin said. “I’m always going to be in that situation. I’m not going to force somebody to play in a game above what’s best for them.” Minaya, a valued perimeter defender, is averaging 7.4 points and 5.6 rebounds this season. He made 30 starts as a freshman. Freshman Keyshawn Bryant has started in Minaya’s place. The rookie led the Gamecocks with 15 points on Sunday against Missouri. How would Martin mesh the two of them together? “(Minaya) and Keyshawn are two completely different players,” Martin said. “They play differently. I haven’t sat down and tried to figure that one out yet. That’s one of those, I’ll cross that bridge when I get there kind of deals.” Is Jermaine Couisnard situation close to being resolved? ‘I wish I had an answer.’ South Carolina has lost one freshman guard to a redshirt this season. That news came down last Thursday when Frank Martin announced T.J. Moss’ foot and ankle surgeries. How soon until a year off becomes official on another rookie? Jermaine Couisnard, a freshman guard from outside Chicago, has yet to be cleared for play after a standardized test score was flagged months ago. “I wish I had an answer,” Carolina coach Frank Martin said Monday when asked if Couisnard’s situation was close to being resolved. “I wish somebody would just give me a deadline, so that I could tell you, ‘We know on this date.’ “I wish there was a deadline. It’s frustrating.” Should a ruling soon come down in Couisnard’s favor, is it too late to put him on the court and burn a redshirt? USC (8-7, 3-0 SEC) is already halfway through its regular season. “I have to stay out of those decisions — whether it’s his or the injured guys — because any opinion I would share is probably going to be biased, slanted to helping us win,” Martin said. “So I need to stay out of that. But I can tell you as a parent, if he got cleared next week, I’d probably call the coach and say, ‘Hey, I know he’s eligible, but I don’t want to burn a year.’ “As a dad, that’s what I would do.” Martin did clarify that Couisnard, a former three-star recruit, will be fully eligible next season. He’d be a redshirt freshman.
  2. 2020 SEC Men’s Basketball Schedule Released Men's Basketball | 9/10/2019 | GCF Staff Report COLUMBIA, S.C. – The Southeastern Conference released on Tuesday its 2020 men's basketball league schedule.

  4. Program greats weigh in on Cousinard: 'He's legit' July 24, 2019 South Carolina coaches have said it. Gamecocks players have said it. On Tuesday night, former players continued the positive comments about redshirt freshman Jermaine Cousinard. After having to sit out last season, the 6-4 guard has been the main storyline of the S.C. Pro-Am. He scored 40 points in day one of the event on Sunday. Multiple teammates went on record saying his showing was nothing new. He took it a step further on Tuesday night, scoring 47 points, including making 6-of-11 three-pointers. Yeah, there isn’t much defense played in the event and there is a lot of scoring in transition, but that did not stop the likes of PJ Dozier and Sindarius Thornwell from speaking positively about Cousinard and what he brings to the upcoming season’s roster.

  7. Young Gamecocks impressing veterans early on July 13, 2019 Young members of the 2019-20 South Carolina men’s basketball team are already making good impressions on their veteran teammates. Head coach Frank Martin and his staff signed five high school prospects, four of which are on scholarship and three that came from programs within the state. Point guard Trae Hannibal of Hartsville, walk-on shooting guard Mike Green from the Christian Academy of Myrtle Beach, forward Trey Anderson from San Diego, Calif. and Woodstock Academy and power forward Wildens Leveque of Brockton, Mass. and Gould Aacadmy have been on campus since the start of Summer I classes in late June. Power forward Jalyn McCreary from Marietta, Ga. and Greenville’s Legacy Early College joined his teammates on campus in July. (VIEW FULL ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS
  8. Former South Carolina basketball star Sindarius Thornwell is on the hunt for a new team July 07, 2019 Saturday, Thornwell was released by the Los Angeles Clippers, along with fellow guard Tyrone Wallace. While the Clippers released two guards, they also brought in Maurice Harkless from the Portland Trail Blazers in another quick flurry of off-season moves. Thornwell spent two seasons with the Clippers but his first was much better than his second. As a rookie, Thornwell averaged 15.8 minutes per game averaging 3.9 points and 1.9 rebounds. He also averaged 0.9 assists and 0.7 steals per game in limited action. Last year was a different story, Thornwell was rarely used. After starting 16 games as a rookie, he made only one start his second year with the franchise and played in 64 games. His time on the court dropped dramatically as he averaged only 4.9 minutes on the floor per game. His numbers dropped across the board, including down 8 percent in field goal percentage and nearly 18 percent in three-point percentage

  10. Today Highlights from Coach Frank Martin's presser June 19, 2019 Martin said Minaya and Moss are both fully healthy and physically stronger than before Martin said playing a Division Two team, from his experience, has no impact on making the postseason. Martin said fans get excited about their football team playing in a bowl game on December 2nd, he would hope they would be equally excited for their team making the NIT if it doesn't make the NCAA Tournament. Martin said he is not scheduling a Division Two team this season, and he said nobody is forcing him to not schedule one. McCreary and Henry are the only newcomers not here and that's related to when they graduated from their schools, both will be in for summer two. McCreary is working at his camps. Martin said Henry is a natural back to the basket player and knows how to catch and pass out of the post. Martin thinks they'll be a better rebounding team this season. Martin said he was caught off guard when Jason Cudd decided to leave (he's transferring to Olney JC in Illinois), but they knew about Jalyn McCreary, had been scouting him, and quickly brought him in and grad transfer Micaiah Henry. Martin said every coach likes his team in the summer, but he feels they have a lot of talented people, as talented a team as he's been around. Martin said he applauds the NCAA for being aggressive in following up on the FBI probe. Martin said he thinks the NCAA will be aggressive in following up to the FBI corruption probe. He said he's at peace with his program related to any NCAA concerns regarding PJ Dozier. Said his heart goes out to Lamont Evans, his former assistant who was found guilty in the probe. Martin said he thinks they signed a really good player in Trae Hannibal. And he feels they're recruiting overall has been pretty good. Martin said Chris Silva was not a "sexy" recruit coming out of high school but he won a lot more games than more highly thought of draft prospects, there's been a lot of info gathering on him and there's some momentum for him heading into the draft. Martin said no waiver for eligibility is being sought for Seventh Woods. He said Woods getting out of the spotlight and redshirting will be good for him. Martin said AJ Lawson got more positive feedback than Chris Silva and PJ Dozier did when they explored going to the draft early.
  11. This after the Federal investigation into the corruption in basketball. There will be at least 6 schools notified of level one violations according to ESPN. Hope to see some heads roll. But who knows.
  12. Former Gamecocks center Cudd to play JUCO this season June 10, 2019 Former USC center 7-1 Jason Cudd said Monday he has signed a letter of intent to play this season at Olney Central JC in Illinois. Cudd said his plan is to play this one season with the Blue Knights and go thru the recruiting process again. And that would include being open to a return to USC if Frank Martin decides to recruit him again. Cudd, who is from Socastee, said he is spending this summer working out with friends and trainers in his hometown with a focus on his foot-work and improving his three-point shooting. A knee injury limited Cudd to just five games last season. He did not score any points and he had 3 rebounds for the season. As a freshman in 2018, Cudd played in 23 games and scored 30 points while grabbing 22 rebounds. Olney Central reached the national quarterfinals last season and finished with a 25-6 record. The Blue Knights averaged 98 points per game.
  13. ‘Do what’s right or do what’s selfish?’ Martin, USC could end annual D-II game May 30, 2019, | THE STATE A holiday season tradition under Frank Martin might be coming to an end. Speaking to The State’s Josh Kendall this week at SEC meetings in Destin, Florida, the South Carolina basketball coach said the Gamecocks are exploring the possibility of no longer playing an in-state Division II opponent. The reason seems to be connected to recent postseason shortcomings. USC’s 5-0 run against Coker, Francis Marion, Lander, Limestone and North Greenville the last five years — all played around Christmas time — didn’t count toward Carolina’s NCAA tournament or NIT résumé because those selection committees don’t acknowledge wins over D-II foes.

  14. Martin did it again Wednesday at SEC meetings when asked by The State’s Josh Kendall about the potential impact of incoming USC freshman Jalyn McCreary June 03, 2019 “I don’t want to say he’s a more refined version than Chris Silva,” Martin said, “but he plays with that same kind of aggression, but not as raw as Chris was as a freshman. I’m excited. I think Jalyn’s got a chance to be pretty good.” McCreary, a 6-foot-8, 220-pound forward from Georgia who spent last season at Legacy Early College in Greenville, is one of four to sign with Carolina in the 2019 class (not including graduate transfer Micaiah Henry).

  15. AJ Lawson has ‘NBA starter potential.’ How will long will he stay with the Gamecocks? May 24, 2019 For what it’s worth, A.J. Lawson looked like an NBA player. Literally. As he hit mid-range jumpers and threw down dunks, Lawson did it in a black LeBron James jersey shirt with No. 23 across the back. Wes Brown, who runs a scouting service for Canadian basketball players, captured Lawson in this setting last week. Brown was in an Ontario gym, shooting iPhone video of Lawson, among other top prospects from his native country. (READ MORE)
  16. ‘I had to make the best decision for me.’ Trey Anderson’s peculiar route to USC basketball May 22, 2019 Early in Trey Anderson’s season at Woodstock (Conn.) Academy, the 6-foot-7 guard suffered a minor concussion. No big deal, Anderson thought, he’d rest for a bit and get back out there, gaining the necessary game reps before starting a college career at South Carolina. Except when Anderson came off the injured list, he was being replaced in bulk. Woodstock Centaurs were dropping all around him. (READ MORE)
  17. LaDazhia Williams finds new basketball home with rival Mizzu May 15, 2019 Former South Carolina women’s basketball player LaDazhia Williams is set to transfer to Missouri, she announced on Instagram on Wednesday. Williams will have to sit out the season, per NCAA rules, and will then have two years of eligibility remaining. The rising junior forward was one of four players to announce she was transferring from South Carolina earlier this offseason. Mikiah Herbert Harrigan later changed her mind and returned to the Gamecocks, Bianca Jackson announced she would go to Florida State, and Te’a Cooper has yet to announce her destination. The Gamecocks also added a transfer this week in former Texas guard Destiny Littleton. A rising junior, she will have two years of eligibility with Carolina.
  18. This future USC big man is taking a humble approach to a potential big opportunity May 07, 2019 Wildens Leveque has no feel for how his South Carolina basketball career will end, but the near-future Gamecock has already envisioned how it will begin. “The first practice,” Leveque said, “I’m accepting the fact that I’m going to get my butt kicked by guys who have been working, who have been going through college workouts for years.” (READ MORE)
  19. Dawn Staley, South Carolina pick up former McDonald’s All-American transfer May 06, 2019 South Carolina women’s basketball has once again dipped into the transfer market, as Dawn Staley received a commitment from former Texas guard Destiny Littleton. Staley hinted at the news in a tweet early Sunday, Littleton tweeted a picture of herself in a South Carolina uniform Monday, and Littleton’s high school coach and mentor, Marlon Wells. As a sophomore at Texas, Littleton averaged 8.4 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game, playing 33 contests while starting 12 and shooting 39.7 percent from the field and 32.2 percent from 3.
  20. Five things to know about Jalyn McCreary, South Carolina’s latest basketball signee May 06, 2019 South Carolina basketball on Friday officially signed the fourth member of its 2019 recruiting class. Jalyn McCreary’s commitment came months after Trae Hannibal, Wildens Leveque and Trey Anderson did the same, but that hardly diminishes its importance. McCreary is a 6-foot-8, 220-pound forward who, according to both 247 Sports and Rivals, ranks as the Gamecocks’ top incoming freshman. Here are five more things to know about McCreary: 1. MCCREARY’S PLAYING STYLE FITS WHAT USC COULD LOOK LIKE NEXT SEASON Frank Martin, who knows Carolina’s personnel better than anyone, has already stated that the 2019-20 Gamecocks will play different than past teams. With Chris Silva’s departure, USC doesn’t present a proven post threat. What it does have is a bunch of long athletes who can run and do damage from the perimeter. Involve McCreary with A.J. Lawson, Keyshawn Bryant and Justin Minaya? He’ll take it. “I’m an athlete myself,” McCreary said. “I like to jump and run the floor. I fit in to players that have athleticism. Yeah, it’ll be a good bond.” B.J. Jackson, McCreary’s coach at Legacy Charter, has a feel for how Martin might blend McCreary and the 6-6 Bryant at the forward spots. “It’ll be good to watch both of them,” Jackson said. “Keyshawn and Jalyn are explosive athletes. Both of them can do a great job of putting the ball on the floor and getting to the rim. So it should fun watching them next year.” 2. SOUTH CAROLINA’S BIGGEST NEED IS MCCREARY’S DEVELOPING SKILL McCreary averaged 18 points and six rebounds this season for Legacy Charter. If that latter number can translate quickly to the college level, the Gamecocks could use it. Silva grabbed 21 percent of USC’s rebounds last season. “He got better as the year went on,” Jackson said of McCreary’s glass skills. “We do a lot of rebounding and boxing out drills and we try to tell him … ‘With your height, length and your jumping ability, you gotta impact your stats more than just scoring. Fill the other parts, rebounding, block shots,’ which he started doing a better job of blocking shots, getting out with deflections where it leads to steals and stuff. “He was more impactful outside of just scoring as the year went on.” 3. MCCREARY WAS GEORGIA-RAISED ... ON FOOTBALL McCreary lived in Statesboro, Georgia, until he was 6. He then moved to Marietta before arriving at Legacy Charter for his final year of high school. While he excels at basketball now, McCreary was first a running back. “Basketball wasn’t really my main sport,” he said. “Football was my main sport. I quit football in seventh grade and then basketball took over. I started really getting into it.” He credits his mother, Kristie Gordon, for continued support. “She’s a big part of my success,” McCreary said of Gordon, an elementary school counselor in Georgia. “I wouldn’t be here, where I am, without her at all. She sacrificed a lot for me to play basketball, traveling to AAU tournaments and stuff. Definitely sacrificed a lot for me to come here and be away from her.” 4. IT’S HIS NEXT STOP, BUT COLLEGE BASKETBALL DOESN’T TOP HIS WHAT-TO-WATCH LIST Off the court, McCreary admits he doesn’t do a whole lot. He’s not into video games. He just “chills” — and consumes professional basketball. “I don’t really watch too much college basketball,” McCreary said. “I’m an NBA guy, so I watch a lot of NBA.” Favorite player? Kevin Durant. Favorite team? Golden State Warriors, but it used to be the Oklahoma City Thunder. “I’m a Kevin Durant fan, so anywhere he goes, I’m gonna be a fan of,” McCreary said. 5. MCCREARY HAS AN EXTENSIVE SHOE COLLECTION McCreary on Thursday rocked some white low-top Gucci kicks while speaking with The State. Legacy Charter school requires a uniform, so the kind of shoe you wear is one of the best ways to show individuality. McCreary has a bunch to choose from. “I’m a sneaker head,” he said. Jackson confirms. “He has too many shoes,” Jackson said. “I told him, ‘Some of your shoes cost more than my car payment, dude.’ But he’s one of them guys, he loves to wear the fancy shoes. Even when we’re out there for practices and stuff, before we get our team shoes, he’s always flamboyant with himself with the shoes and stuff.” Outlandish kicks complete a look that now includes green in McCreary’s hair. “I really like fashion,” McCreary said. “I’ve been into it since ninth grade.”
  21. Felipe Haase will be entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal and intends to transfer from the South Carolina April 25, 2019 Felipe Haase will be entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal and intends to transfer from the South Carolina basketball program, the school confirmed Thursday. Haase will have two years of eligibility left. According to a report from The Big Spur, Haase could end up at Mercer, where his high school coach just accepted an assistant coaching position. The Big Spur was the first to announce Haase’s departure.Haase joins Jason Cudd as the second Gamecock player to transfer. USC also will lose Chris Silva, Hassani Gravett and Tre Campbell to graduation. A.J. Lawson submitted his name for the NBA Draft but has the option to return to school. The 6-foot-9 Haase appeared in 32 games this season and averaged 6.3 points and 3.8 rebounds. He had a season-high 14 points against Missouri. Haase was a three-star recruit out of Miami Christian High School in Florida.
  22. What are AJ Lawson’s NBA Draft chances? National analyst weighs in on USC freshman April 17, 2019 THE STATE On Dec. 5, less than a week after he scored 25 points and led South Carolina to a win, A.J. Lawson received his first bit of NBA Draft buzz. Sam Vecenie of The Athletic released that afternoon an “NBA Draft Big Board” with a ranking of 100 players for June’s two-round event. No. 1 was Duke’s Zion Williamson. No. 9 was Murray State’s Ja Morant. No. 49 was Lawson. (READ MORE)
