  1. GAMECOCK-GAMEDAY THREAD: South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt ***Jan. 25, 2020 at 8:00pm.*** **Jan. 25, 2020 - Saturday, 8:00 p.m.** South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Vanderbilt Commodores Here you go free to listen if not near a radio or TV South Carolina is a week removed from making a program-record 16 3s in a win over Texas A&M. It went 6 of 21 from deep in the Auburn loss, a showing that hindered the offense as the Gamecocks again struggled for free throw opportunities. Vandy is last in the SEC in both field goal percentage and 3-point FG percentage defense. 3. History on the line Should South Carolina, which has taken the last two matchups with Vandy, win Saturday, it would extend the Commodores’ SEC regular-season losing streak to 24 games, tying for the longest in league history. After USC, Vandy travels to No. 15 Kentucky. “It’s not going to be easy,” Stackhouse recently told Vanderbilt reporters. “Right now, not being whole (due to injuries), the perception is what it is. We’ve got to find a way to fight through that perception.” 4. Bryant watch South Carolina is 1-1 since Keyshawn Bryant exited the Texas A&M game with a head injury. Frank Martin said during his Gamecock Sports Network call-in show Thursday night that Bryant practiced in half-court situations that afternoon. Bryant’s game status remains to be determined. The same goes for reserve freshman guard Trae Hannibal (sprained ankle). Wildens Leveque started in Bryant’s place at Auburn and finished with four points, three rebounds, three steals and a block in 13 minutes. The Gamecocks mainly went with a smaller lineup that included Jair Bolden’s 21 minutes off the bench. VANDERBILT Coach: Jerry Stackhouse (First season at Vanderbilt — 8-10) Projected starters: G Saben Lee (15.9 ppg), G Maxwell Evans (7.2), G Jordan Wright (4.0), F Dylan Disu (6.4), G/F Braelee Albert (1.5) Last game: Lost to Alabama 77-62 at home on Wednesday KenPom ranking: 177 (No. 133 in offensive efficiency, No. 228 in defensive efficiency) NET: 145 SOUTH CAROLINA Coach: Frank Martin (256-168 in 13 seasons overall; eighth season at USC — 139-114) Projected starters: G A.J.

  4. Already beat 5 ranked teams and our Ladies still have to play 6 more top 25 teams including U-Conn on the schedule. And with 3 freshmen starters not only are they winning, they are scoring 90+ points a game these last 4 games. Our football team was disappointing. Men's Basketball is getting disappointing. SO SO thankful for our Ladies being such a great team. And watching them play leaves no doubt why they are ranked #1 this year. Great team work, great assist, great rebounding, fast breaks. Just fun to watch and really glad the schedule is so tough. They can handle the heat and have been proving that. I work nights so it is hard for me, but I hope plenty of folks go out to support these ladies and enjoy some great games.
  5. WITH VIDEOS COACH & SELECTED PLAYERS: Keynotes from today's presser with Coach Frank Martin Jan. 20, 2020 Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. ET - South Carolina at Auburn, Auburn Arena, ESPNU Frank Martin said TJ Moss is back after a death in the family, Hannibal's left ankle is better but there is still pain, the swelling has gone down, and Bryant is improved with his head injury but it's day today. Bryant also deals with migraines. Frank Martin said Jermaine Couisnard is giving his team some personality. The Gamecocks (10-7, 2-2 SEC) is coming off a perfect week when they knocked off the Aggies and then-No. 10 Kentucky. Auburn, ranked as high as No. 4 last week, is on a two-game skid.
  6. South Carolina uses 3-ball to down Texas A&M, 81-67 Gamecocks tie school record with 16 3s, hitting 10 triples in second half alone Jair Bolden scored 19 points and South Carolina defeated Texas A&M 81-67 on Saturday afternoon. The Gamecocks made 16-of-30 of their 3-point attempts (53.3%), in keeping the Aggies at arms' length for most of the second part of the second half. The Aggies, one of the nation's worst 3-point shooting teams, finished 3-of-14 from 3-point range (21.4%), in failing to keep up with South Carolina down the stretch. (VIEW ARTICLE)

  8. GAMECOCK-GAMEDAY THREAD: South Carolina vs. Kentucky***Jan. 15, 2019 at 6:30pm.*** **Jan. 15, 2019 -Wednesday, 6:30 p.m.** South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Kentucky Wildcats Here you go free to listen if not near a radio or TV -------------------------------------- GAME INFO Who: No. 10 Kentucky (12-3, 3-0 SEC) at South Carolina (8-7, 0-2 SEC) When: 6:30 p.m. Wednesday Where: Colonial Life Arena TV channel: SEC Network Radio: 107.5 The Game in Columbia area Series: Kentucky leads, 52-12 Last meeting: Feb. 5, 2019 — Kentucky 76, South Carolina 48 KenPom prediction: Kentucky 72, South Carolina 66 USC-KENTUCKY 1. Hagans vs. who? While South Carolina is still experimenting with point guard options, Kentucky enters each game with a firm sense of who’s running its show. Ashton Hagans, a Georgia native once recruited by Frank Martin, is among the best at his position in the country. The sophomore is averaging 13.1 points per game and leads the SEC in assists (7.3 per game) and is third in steals (2.2). He becomes a difficult matchup for whoever among A.J. Lawson, Jair Bolden, Jermaine Couisnard, T.J. Moss or Trae Hannibal. “He disrupts your point of entry on offense,” Martin said. “That’s something that we haven’t been good against this year. When we play teams that are defensively aggressive, that disrupt point of entry, we’ve struggled to be able to make three passes and get a good shot. “So all those things taken into consideration, that’s going to be a big matchup in the game on Wednesday. We have to offset that intangible that Ashton brings. He brings this aggression that all good teams and all good players have.” 2. Free throw contest favors UK South Carolina is coming off its first loss of the Martin era in which it held its opponent under 30% shooting. The Gamecocks were 15-0 when doing this over the last seven-plus seasons — until Tennessee beat them at 25.9 FG%. Free throws again haunted USC as the Vols made nine more in a 56-55 game. The last time the Wildcats and Gamecocks got together in Columbia, South Carolina won a 2018 game that featured 74 free throw attempts. Should something similar happen again Wednesday, give a significant edge to UK. John Calipari’s teams leads the SEC in FT percentage (77.5) and Martin’s is last at 61.4. 3. Big Blue, big game South Carolina gets its most storied league rival in an effort to try to break an odd trend. The Gamecocks have lost three straight home games — its worst skid in two seasons — and now hosts the 51-time SEC champs. Kentucky, which suffered a head-scratching loss to Evansville in November, comes to Colonial Life Arena on a four-game win streak. “Cal does a great job managing his team as the year goes on,” Martin said, “because he’s got so many first-year guys. I think he’s a got better feel (this season) because he’s got guys that have been with him for a couple years now.” UK starts just two freshmen. USC is seeking to avoid its first 0-3 start to SEC play since 2013-14. KENTUCKY Coach: John Calipari (762-214 in 28 seasons overall; 11th season at Kentucky — 317-74) Projected starters: G Ashton Hagans (13.1 ppg), G Tyrese Maxey (13.9), F Nick Richards (13.0), F Keion Brooks (5.6), F E.J.

  9. Gamecock still in search for a point guard Jan. 13, 2020, | GCF Staff Report The Gamecocks could have a new player handling the bulk of its point guard minutes Wednesday against No. 10 Kentucky and it’s mostly because Jermaine Couisnard represents to Frank Martin everything that position’s been lacking this season. Marin said. “Personality, fearlessness, aggression.” (VIEW ARTICLE)

  12.

Starting fresh Christmas was great for the Gamecocks. New Year’s wasn’t. South Carolina’s odd split of holiday games — a massive win over then-No. 9 Virginia on Dec. 22 followed by a head-scratching loss to Stetson on Dec. 30 — puts USC in an intriguing position heading into SEC play. Which team shows up against the Gators? If it’s the one that grabbed a rare road victory at UVa, then the Gamecocks could easily be 1-0 in the league for the fourth time in five years. But should that Stetson performance linger, South Carolina is facing a talented-enough roster to get blown out at home. Florida, after all, was picked in the preseason to finish second in the SEC. “The start of conference play is a big opportunity,” said sophomore guard A.J. Lawson. “If we can come out here and play to the best of our abilities and come out strong, that’ll set the tone for the rest of conference play.” 2. Martin vs. White The last time South Carolina began SEC play against the Gators, it stole a memorable win. Felipe Haase threw to Chris Silva, who dunked home the go-ahead basket with 2.5 seconds left to cement the Gamecocks’ come-from-behind 71-69 victory in Gainesville last January. It was all the latest example of Carolina coach Frank Martin’s edge over Florida coach Mike White. The Gamecocks lead the series over White’s Gators (since White’s 2015 hire), 5-2, including USC’s Elite Eight win in 2017. 3. Team Canada Florida, a team of high expectations coming off an offseason that included the addition of coveted Virginia Tech transfer Kerry Blackshear, had a relatively disappointing non-conference showing as it went from preseason No. 6 to out of the polls. The Gators rallied back from 21 down to beat Alabama on Saturday in their SEC opener, perhaps the kind of finish to a game that gets them rolling through January. Andrew Nembhard led the charge with 25 points and four assists. Nembhard is the Gators’ point guard, meaning it’s likely he gets the matchup with fellow Canadian A.J. Lawson. Longtime friends, the 6-foot-5 Nembhard had 10 points and seven assists in last year’s USC game. The 6-6 Lawson, who is coming off a season-low 13 minutes in the Stetson loss, was held to six points in Gainesville. “We’re just talking about moving on to the next game, playing how I should play, playing to the best of my abilities and not holding back,” Lawson said of the message he received from Martin following the Stetson loss. “And giving it maximum effort.” 4. Couisnard’s availability South Carolina sixth man Jermaine Couisnard hasn’t practiced since last mid-week due to a back strain. That was Martin’s Monday update. The plan from there was to try practicing Monday afternoon in anticipation for Tuesday’s game. Couisnard is fifth on the team in minutes (21.8) and fourth in scoring (8.5 points per game). His absence could mean more time for Trae Hannibal or T.J. Moss. 5. Defending Blackshear South Carolina will get its first crack at Blackshear, the SEC’s preseason player of the year, in an actual game. The Gamecocks are familiar with him, however, from past scrimmages with Virginia Tech. “I remember him being a good player,” Maik Kotsar said of the 6-10, 241-pound Blackshear. “We never did any proper scout on them just because it was a scrimmage game and we just went at them. “But we’ve just got to stay solid on defense, got to do everything I can just to stop him.” Blackshear is averaging nearly 15 points and nine rebounds a game. The senior is an 84 percent free throw shooter.

  13. Game Recap: Women's Basketball | 1/2/2020 Freshmen lead No. 4 South Carolina past No. 13 Kentucky COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – South Carolina coach Dawn Staley is trying not to get ahead of herself. As good as her freshman-powered, fourth-ranked Gamecocks appear to be - and they looked plenty good in a 99-72 win over No. 13 Kentucky on Thursday night - they're still very young, and often young players make mistakes.

  14. SEC Men's Basketball Teleconference 1.2.2020 Frank Martin ‘disappointed as I’ve ever been’ as USC moves from Stetson to SEC play South Carolina basketball, after a brief break, was scheduled to resume practicing Thursday afternoon. It’s then when Frank Martin was set to address his team for the first time since Monday’s shocking loss to Stetson. The result still has the Gamecocks coach befuddled on the brink of SEC play. “After the Stetson game,” Martin said Thursday on an SEC teleconference with reporters, “that’s the most disappointed I’ve ever been in a (basketball team) I’ve been the head coach of at the high school or college level. “We got all week, the next five days, to have conversations and make sure that we figure out a way to get away from that lifeless experience that we had.” Carolina (8-5) next hosts Florida (8-4) at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Martin, in his eighth season with the Gamecocks, has a team coming off a couple stunning performances. They lost at home to Stetson (NET ranking of 323 at the time) eight days after beating Virginia (AP ranking of No. 9 at the time) on the road.

  17. Picking South Carolina women’s basketball all-decade team: A’ja, Alaina and who else? Dec. 27, 2019 The 2010s have been good to South Carolina women’s basketball. Very, very, very good. The past decade has marked, without a doubt, the program’s greatest period of success. As Dawn Staley’s program took root and began to flourish, the Gamecocks won their first national championship, advanced to the Sweet 16 eight times, stayed in the AP Top 25 for more than seven years in a row (and counting) and racked up an impressive 261-65 record. And the future is bright, too — the class of 2019 gave Staley her first No. 1 recruiting class, putting USC in prime position to contend into the early 2020s. (VIEW ARTICLE) THE STATE

A grand opportunity Frank Martin is 0-4 all-time as head coach of a team facing the reigning national champions. His one try while in charge of South Carolina came during Season No. 1, a 77-55 loss to Kentucky on Feb. 5, 2013. Enter Virginia, which lost three key players to the NBA off its title team (Kyle Guy, Ty Jerome and De’Andre Hunter combined for 48 points in UVa’s win over USC last December), but has kept a top 10 ranking and already owns wins over Syracuse and North Carolina. The Gamecocks haven’t topped a reigning national champ since sweeping Kentucky in 1996-97. “To be on ABC,” Martin said, “playing the defending the national champions in a great environment that they have there at the University of Virginia, it’s a great moment for our players to be able to showcased there.” 2. Road challenge South Carolina has started a season 2-0 in true road game for the first time since 2015-16. But winning at UMass and Clemson is one thing, upsetting the Cavaliers at John Paul Jones Arena is another. UVa has taken the last 22 games on its home floor against non-conference opponents. The last visiting team to leave Charlottesville happy was West Virginia, coached by Martin’s pal Bob Huggins, on Dec. 3, 2016. 3. Solving the Pack-Line The offensive tweaks that sparked USC’s win over Clemson — see A.J. Lawson moving to point guard, Jair Bolden shifting to the wing — are expected to continue in Charlottesville, but how much will it matter against one of the nation’s premier defenses? Tony Bennett’s famed Pack-Line is as suffocating as ever in 2019-20. Virginia ranks No. 1 in adjusted defensive efficiency, according to kempom.com, and is allowing all of 44.2 points per game. Switching Lawson to PG was a move intended to get the Gamecocks more transition opportunities. Problem is, a strength of Bennett’s system has long been to limit an opponent’s chances in the open floor. In other words, Carolina must execute in the half-court — and make long jump shots. USC enters 320th nationally in 3-point field goal percentage (28.8). VIRGINIA Coach: Tony Bennett (332-123 in 14 seasons overall; 11th season at Virginia — 263-90) Projected starters: G Kihei Clark (9.0 points per game, G Casey Morsell (4.9), G Kody Stattmann (5.3), F Mamadi Diakite (13.2), F Jay Huff (9.5) Last game: Beat Stony Brook 56-44 on Wednesday at home KenPom ranking: 12 (No. 164 in offense efficiency, No. 1 in defense efficiency) NET: 39 SOUTH CAROLINA Coach: Frank Martin (253-164 in 13 seasons overall; eighth season at USC — 136-110) Projected starters: G A.J.

So excuse Frank Martin — and his language — for not getting overly excited Sunday after the Gamecocks held off George Washington, 74-65, at Colonial Life Arena. “I really like our team,” Martin said. “It’s just like our children. I really love them, but that doesn’t mean they don’t (tick) me off on a regular basis. My team has been aggravating me for three weeks.” After a 3-0 start — in which USC was beating team by an average of 28 points — the Gamecocks are 2-3. They snapped a two-game skid against GW, but not before allowing the Colonials (3-5) to whittle a 19-point deficit down to eight in the second half. It wasn’t a complete performance, but it was enough to give Martin’s team a little momentum heading toward a real challenging part of the schedule. USC travels to UMass (5-3) on Wednesday before facing Houston (3-2), Clemson (5-2) and No. 5 Virginia (7-0) on consecutive Sundays. The Minutemen figure to provide the lightest of these tests, but it’s still Carolina’s first true road game of the season — and the Gamecocks are still trying to find consistent footing. Here are four things to watch: 1. DOES KEYSHAWN BRYANT PLAY? Keyshawn Bryant’s practice load was expected to increase Monday in anticipation of a game appearance this week. Chance No. 1 for the injured swingman comes Wednesday. Bryant had knee surgery last month and has yet to debut in 2019-20. A return would be timely as Martin is struggling with frontcourt depth. Asked how he decides on the No. 3 “big” after Maik Kotsar and Wildens Leveque, Martin acted like he was flipping a coin between Alanzo Frink and Jalyn McCreary, a pair that combined for four points in 11 minutes against GW. An available 6-foot-5 Bryant can bump Justin Minaya down to the “four” or power forward position alongside Kotsar or Leveque. “When we get Keyshawn back, it gives us the ability to play Justin more at the four (power forward) and not lose the size and athleticism at the three,” Martin said. “We’ll figure that out.” 2. CAN LEVEQUE CONTINUE GOOD PLAY IN HIS QUASI-HOMECOMING GAME? Leveque has started the last four games, progressing in Martin’s eyes with each opportunity. The 6-11, 230-pound freshman had six points, seven rebounds and two blocks in the GW win. “They went to a really small lineup and they put Wildens in a ball-screen and Wildens did exactly what he was coached to do,” Martin said. “I’m so happy with that kid right now. “You learn about people when you’re in crisis. And in our business, any time you lose two in a row, you’re in some kind of crisis. Losing a game happens. When you lose two in a row, three of four, your team is in a little crisis. Why? Because negative habits are hard to break. Losing becomes the cancer of the sport. And you learn about the kids you’re coaching in difficult moments. “And for Wildens to come in and play (Saturday) in practice and then shoot-around today and then what he did for us on the court today, for a kid that’s (eight) games into his college career, I’m really, really excited about him.” Leveque is from Brockton, Massachusetts, a two-hour drive from Amherst and UMass. He was recruited by the Minutemen. 3. CAN THE GAMECOCKS STRING TOGETHER SHOTS? South Carolina is averaging 71.3 points per game, a number typical of a Martin-coached team. But where does that number go when (if?) the Gamecocks snap out of this shooting funk? USC is now 22 for its last 84 on 3-pointers (26.1%) and 24 for its last 46 (52.2%) from the foul line. “Offensively, we’re a work in progress,” Martin said. “Eventually those guys are going to make 3s. And we’re scoring 74,70, we’re always around that number, without making 3s — and missing free throws.” UMass enters Wednesday 43rd nationally in 3-point field goal percentage defense (27.7%). 4. EXPERIENCE EDGE Kotsar aside, South Carolina has relied pretty much on freshmen, sophomores and Jair Bolden, a junior in his first season playing at South Carolina after transferring from George Washington. All the inexperience is a big reason for the early struggles, Martin has said, particularly when faced with older teams. The Gamecocks won’t have such an excuse Wednesday. UMass starts two freshmen and plays seven of them. The Minutemen rank as the 345th-least experienced team in the country, according to KenPom.com. USC is No. 325 on that list. T.J. Weeks is the best of the UMass rookies. The 6-4 guard is averaging over 15 points and shooting better than 54% from 3-point range.
