  1. In what is most certainly the biggest sports news to hit women's college basketball since the NCAA pulled the plug on the post-season, Mississippi State head coach Vic Schaefer has decided to leave Starkville after 8 seasons and accept the head coaching post at the University of Texas. Schaefer will replace former Longhorns head coach Karen Aston, who was let go this past week. It's pretty big news for WCBB in the SEC, as Schaefer was setting up to be the chief rival for South Carolina and Gamecocks' head coach Dawn Staley. Schaefer had brought in some quality talent to the Bulldogs' roster, including top-10 2019 prep prospect F Rickea Jackson and 5* PG Aliyah Matharu who both shined in their debut season in college. South Carolina beat Mississippi State 76-62 in the championship game of the 2020 SEC Tournament in what would be the final game of the season for both teams, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Schaefer, a Texas native, graduated from Texas A&M and spent nine years as associate head coach there under coach Gary Blair. He was a member of the Aggies' staff when they won the national championship in 2011. He took over as head coach of Mississippi State in 2012 and led the Bulldogs to the national championship game in 2017 and 2018 losing both times, once to South Carolina. Schaefer was 221-62 while at Mississippi State, and 89-39 in SEC games. This is a sizable shake-up in the SEC - Schaefer had built up Mississippi State to become a major conference rival for South Carolina, and the program was poised under Schaefer to continue as such for the foreseeable future. Schaefer however did seem to struggle in overcoming South Carolina's and head coach Dawn Staley's dominance in the conference: the Bulldogs had won only 3 of 15 games against the Gamecocks under Schaefer, including 4 SEC tournament championship games in 5 seasons, in addition to the 2017 national championship game. Now Schaefer moves on to the Big-12 Conference, where the power of that conference is Texas' bitter rival Baylor and Kim Mulkey. Karen Aston was terminated despite having substantial success as head coach, with strong recruiting and a overall 184-83 record in Austin, TX. What did Aston in however was her 1-18 record versus Baylor, something Schaefer will need to correct quickly if he wants his time at Texas to be fruitful. https://www.espn.com/womens-college-basketball/story/_/id/28997584/texas-hires-mississippi-state-vic-schaefer-new-head-coach

Kotsar led the Gamecocks with 13 points and eight rebounds, and the senior secured Carolina's eighth SEC win of the season. > The numbers show just how close of a contest it was vs. the Vols - both teams with 20 baskets, both with four 3-pointers, and the difference was Carolina's 19 makes at the charity stripe compared to 17 by the Vols. Kotsar was 7-of-8 at the line for Carolina and R-freshman guard Jermaine Couisnard was 7-of-11, as the duo accounted for 14 of Carolina's makes at the line. > Carolina aims for its seventh road win of the season on Wednesday at MSU.

Wednesday's matchup at Mississippi State is another Q1 opportunity for the Gamecocks. > South Carolina captured its sixth road win of the season last Wednesday when it defeated Georgia 75-59 in Athens. The Gamecocks held the Bulldogs to just one field goal in the first 14 minutes of the game to build a double-digit lead they would never give up. Sophomore guard AJ Lawson led four Gamecocks in double figures with a game high 20 points. > Carolina's six road wins are currently the most in the SEC (Kentucky has five and is on the road on Tuesday evening at LSU), and the most by a Gamecock squad since the 2016-17 Final Four team also had six road wins. > Kotsar ranks fourth all-time in Gamecock history with 115 career starts. He'll make career start 116 on Wednesday vs. Mississippi State, which will place him in a tie for second all-time with Gamecock greats Melvin Watson and BJ McKie. Sindarius Thornwell leads the category with 132 career starts. > In home games this season, Carolina is averaging 72.5 points per outing and 42.4 percent from the field. > Since the beginning of the 2016 SEC campaign, Carolina is 31-11 (.738) in conference home contests. > In its 16 wins, the Carolina defense is holding opponents to just 35.6 percent from the field and 25.1 percent from 3-point range. > Martin is 33-45 (.435) against ranked opponents as a head coach. His teams have four wins over opponents ranked in the top five, and two wins over opponents who are ranked No. 1. > The Gamecocks are 6-3 on the road this season, and are 28-36 (43.7%) in road contests dating back to the 2014-15 campaign.

He sits at 635 for his career, and Gamecock great Sindarius Thornwell is in the 10th position with 684 career rebounds. > The Gamecocks are holding opponents to just 38.3 percent from the floor, which is first in the SEC and 14th nationally. > Carolina has dished at least 13 assists in 19 games, including an SEC season high 22 in the Jan. 18 road win at Texas A&M. > R-freshman guard Jermaine Couisnard is averaging a team high 2.9 assists per game. He has 19 games this season with two or more assists. > Carolina has held its opponent to less than 40 percent from the field on 12 occassions, including holding Wyoming to 23.1 percent and only nine made field goals. > The Gamecocks are 15-2 in games in which they lead at the half. > Carolina is 10-2 in games in which Jair Bolden scores in double figures. THE DEFENSE SHINES > Frank Martin teams are known for their tenacious defense and the 2019-20 team is on the mark. The Gamecocks lead the league and rank 14th nationally, holding opponents to just 38.3% from the field. From 3-point range, opponents have hit just 155-of-538 attempts (28.8%/4th in the SEC/13th nationally), and Carolina is forcing 15.7 turnovers per contest, second in the SEC and 42nd in the nation. KOTSAR CONTINUES STRONG SENIOR CAMPAIGN > Senior forward Maik Kotsar is such a strong component for the Gamecocks on the defensive end, but during his senior campaign, his offense and rebounding have been key. > Kotsar has led or shared the team lead in scoring eight times this season, including in four of Carolina's SEC games. He has also scored in double figures a career high 16 times. > Kotsar is currently in a career-best streak of six straight games scoring in double figures.

MINAYA STRONG IN LEAGUE PLAY > Prior to suffering a hand/wrist injury in the Feb. 1 Missouri contest, r-sophomore forward Justin Minaya was playing strong on both ends of the court for the Gamecocks in SEC action. In his eight league games, Minaya is averaging 8.9 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals per outing. He has four double-figure outings in SEC action, including a career high 18 points in the Jan. 18 road win at Texas A&M. Additionally his 31.1 minutes played in SEC games is a team high. SCOUTING THE BULLDOGS > Mississippi State is led by head coach Ben Howland in his fifth season in Starkville. > The Bulldogs are 16-9 overall this season and 7-5 in SEC games. > At home, MSU is 11-2, with their losses coming against Louisiana Tech and Auburn. > The Bulldogs are second in the SEC and 43rd nationally with a field goal percentage of 46.5% this season. MSU is also among the best in rebounds, ranking ninth in rebound margin at +7.8 per game. > Much of the Bulldogs' success on the glass comes from sophomore forward Reggie Perry, who averages 9.8 per outing to lead the SEC. In conference games, he is the only player in the league averaging a double-double at 20.8 points and 10.2 rebounds per contest. > Tyson Carter (13.4), Nick Weatherspoon (11.6) and Robert Woodard II (11.4) also average double figures on the year. > The Bulldogs have won three of their last five SEC games entering Wednesday's contest.

He also served as the head coach at North Miami Senior High School (1993-95) and one season at Booker T. Washington High School (1999-2000). > Among active Division I head coaches, South Carolina's Frank Martin holds the eighth-highest (tied with Villanova's Jay Wright) NCAA Tournament winning percentage (.667) behind only Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, North Carolina's Roy Williams, Texas Tech's Chris Beard, Kentucky's John Calipari, Michigan State's Tom Izzo, Kansas' Bill Self and Virginia's Tony Bennett.

He was 4-of-7 from the floor, and made 3-of-6 attempts at the foul line. > South Carolina extended it's winning streak to three straight when it posted a convincing 76-54 home victory over Missouri Feb. 1.

GAMECOCK-GAMEDAY THREAD: South Carolina vs. Texas A&M ***Feb. 08, 2020 at 1:00pm.*** **Feb. 08, 2020 - Saturday, 1:00 p.m.** South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Texas A&M Aggies Here you go free to listen if not near a radio or TV ---------------------------------- GAME INFO Who: Texas A&M (11-10, 5-4) at South Carolina (13-9, 5-4) When: 1 p.m. Saturday Where: Colonial Life Arena TV channel: SEC Network Radio: 107.5 FM in Columbia area Series: South Carolina leads 6-4 Last meeting: Jan. 18, 2020 — South Carolina 81, Texas A&M 67 KenPom prediction: South Carolina 70, Texas A&M 61 South Carolina (13-9, 5-4 SEC) hosts Texas A&M (11-10, 5-4) on Saturday at Colonial Life Arena. Tip-off is 1 p.m., broadcast on the SEC Network. WHAT TO FOLLOW USC-TEXAS A&M 1. A fifth-place battle Two games separate second and fifth place in the SEC. South Carolina and Texas A&M are part of the four-way tie for fifth, a game up on ninth-place Arkansas and Alabama. It’s a bunched-up middle and any significant losing streak can cause a team to plummet quickly. For the Gamecocks, they’ve got to take care of business at every winnable opportunity. This is one of them. USC lost Wednesday at previously 1-7 Ole Miss, but now it comes home to take on an Aggies team that is 3-6 away from College Station this season. 2. A chance to sweep Since USC’s win over the Aggies on Jan. 18, Buzz Williams’ team is 3-2 and staying in contention for a top-4 seed in the SEC tournament. With a win Saturday, the Gamecocks sweep Texas A&M for a second straight season. How they won in College Station was the result of a historic shooting performance. USC tied a school-record by making 16 3-pointers. The Aggies haven’t allowed more than 10 3s in a game since. Carolina hasn’t made more than 10 3s in a game since. 3. Game 2 without Minaya Justin Minaya was the best player on the floor the last time these teams met. South Carolina’s versatile swingman played all 40 minutes, scored 18 points, grabbed eight rebounds and handed out five assists. Minaya won’t be available Saturday as he recovers from thumb surgery. He wasn’t in Oxford on Wednesday and the Gamecocks allowed a season-high for points and never once led the Rebels. “Justin had a relentless approach to everything he did on the court,” Frank Martin during his call-in show Thursday on the Gamecock Sports Network. “Blocking shots, rebounding both on offense and defense, the ferocity with which he cut, his willingness to run the court. Those are all things that don’t show up on the stat sheet, those are things that help you win games. “We got to figure out a way to solve the riddle without him out there.” TEXAS A&M Coach: Buzz Williams (264-165 in 13 seasons overall; first season at Texas A&M — 11-10) Projected starters: G Andre Gordon (8.1 ppg), G Wendell Mitchell (8.5), G/F Savion Flagg (10.0), F Josh Nebo (11.8), F Emanuel Miller (5.8) Last game: Beat Missouri 68-51 on Tuesday at home KenPom ranking: 156 (No. 269 in offense efficiency, No. 70 in defense efficiency) NET: 129 SOUTH CAROLINA Coach: Frank Martin (259-169 in 13 seasons overall; eighth season at USC — 142-115) Projected starters: G A.J.

The Rebels are 10-11 on the year, and just 1-7 in SEC games. In home games, Ole Miss is 7-4, however, the Rebels have not won an SEC home game. Ole Miss' trio of starting guards all average double figures on the year, led by Breein Tyree's 17.9 points per game, which ranks third in the SEC (overall games). Devontae Shuler (11.5) and Blake Hinson (10.5) also average double figures. In the SEC stats (overall games), Ole Miss is sixth in 3-point field goal percent (31.6), fifth in 3-point field goal percent defense (30.2), seventh in assists (13.5) and the Rebels are last, only blocking 2.7 shots per game.

(AP) Aliyah Boston had 18 points and 15 rebounds to lead No. 1 South Carolina to an 86-65 win over No. 25 Arkansas on Thursday night. Boston, a 6-foot-5 freshman, also had seven blocked shots for the Gamecocks in their 16th straight win. South Carolina (22-1, 10-0 SEC) got a game-high 25 points from Mikiah Herbert Harrigan, who was 11-of-19 from the floor and added five rebounds and five assists. Zia Cooke added 14 points for the Gamecocks. South Carolina grabbed an early 9-0 lead and was never really threatened after that. It was much different than the first meeting between the teams in January, when Arkansas (18-5, 6-4) rallied from a 20-point deficit before losing 91-82. This time, the Gamecocks led 46-33 at halftime and led by more than 20 points several times in the second half. South Carolina dominated the boards 57-31 and had 19 offensive rebounds. Chelsea Dungee led Arkansas with 16 points and Alexis Tolefree, who was coming off a 35-point performance against Missouri, added 13. BIG PICTURE South Carolina: The Gamecocks just kept rolling. They have not lost since a 71-57 setback against Indiana in November. Arkansas: The Razorbacks were coming off an overtime win against Missouri. They have shown marked improvement under third-year coach Mike Neighbors, but they didn't have the size to compete with the Gamecocks. GAMECHANGER The Gamecock defense locked down the nation's fourth highest-scoring offense, holding the Razorbacks to just 65 points, their second-lowest output of the season. Arkansas scored just 16 points in each of the final three quarters. KEY STAT The Gamecocks continued their rebounding prowess on Thursday by out-rebounding Arkansas 57-31, including 19 offensive boards, which they turned into 24 second-chance points. NOTABLES Carolina dominated in the paint, outscoring Arkansas 50-28. The Gamecocks kept Arkansas off the free throw line, where it entered the game averaging 16.6 made free throws. The Razorbacks went to the line just seven times. This win gives the Garnet and Black its eighth win over teams ranked in the AP Top 25. The Gamecocks are 22-1, their best start since the 2015-16 squad opened the year 22-0. Mikiah Herbert Harrigan scored a season-high 25 points, just two shy of tying her career high. The senior just missed out on a double-double as she finished with nine rebounds. Aliyah Boston earned her ninth double-double of the season, fifth in SEC play, with 18 points and 15 rebounds. She also swatted seven shots, just one shy of the program record in an SEC game. Zia Cooke poured in 14 points, her eighth SEC game in double figures. She also tied her career high for rebounds in conference play with six. UP NEXT The Gamecocks (22-1, 10-0 SEC) return to the friendly confines of Colonial Life Arena for their biggest test in Columbia so far this year when No. 4 UConn (19-2, 9-0 AAC) comes to town on Monday. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. ET with the game airing on ESPN2.

Welcome to February The Gamecocks ended January with four wins in five games, setting up a next month full of potential. The combined SEC record of South Carolina’s nine February opponents is 28-35, good for the league’s second easiest slate. Starting things by beating Missouri — and its 1-5 road record — would give USC its first three-game win streak since the season’s first three games. 2. Can the points continue to pile up? South Carolina is favored to win this game, sure, but the Tigers are capable of their second win in last three trips to Colonial Life Arena.

Tip-off is 8:30 p.m. SEC Network will broadcast.

This Bud’s for the Gamecocks? South Carolina has won once in its last six trips to Bud Walton Arena. The good news for the Gamecocks is they’re entering Wednesday’s game with a 4-2 record in true road contests, with one of those losses coming by a point to Tennessee. The bad news is the Razorbacks are 11-1 at home this season and USC’s most recent performance away from Columbia wasn’t a good one. “The game was impacted by the energy in the building at Auburn,” said Carolina coach Frank Martin, referring to last Wednesday’s 80-67 loss in front of a near-capacity crowd at Auburn Arena. Kentucky is the only opponent to win at Bud Walton in 2019-20. The Razorbacks, off to a hot start under first-year coach Eric Musselman, are a No. 8 seed in Joe Lunardi’s most recent NCAA Tournament projection posted to ESPN.com. 2. Size matters? According to college basketball analytics guru Ken Pomeroy, Arkansas is the shortest team in the SEC. The average Razorback stands 6-foot-3. Average height of a South Carolina player is 6-5. The Gamecocks are the second-tallest team in the SEC. Length aside, the Razorbacks lead the SEC in 3-point field goal percentage defense and steals. They’re last in rebound margin. The system transition from Mike Anderson, who coached Arkansas for eight seasons, to Musselman has been a smooth one, Martin said. “Muss is real similar to Mike,” Martin said. “If Muss was a 2-3 zone, passive, kind of play slow coach, then I could see where it would be an adjustment period. Or if Mike was that way. But they’re very similar with how they play. They’re very aggressive offensive teams, very aggressive defensive teams. “So style of coaching, even though it’s new, fits the personnel that had been recruited.” In league games only, the Razorbacks are fourth in the SEC in scoring defense, allowing just over 69 points per game. USC averaged 84 points per game in its three SEC wins and 63 in its three losses. 3. Eyes on Joe Isaiah Joe, a reigning SEC all-freshman team member and Arkansas’ second-leading scorer, missed the Razorbacks’ last game with knee inflammation and is considered questionable to play against the Gamecocks. Should Joe go, USC is dealing with a 6-5 guard who is averaging over 16 points per game. If Joe sits, USC goes a second straight game without having to deal with one of the league’s elite guards. Vandy’s Aaron Nesmith, the SEC’s leading scorer, missed Saturday’s USC win as he continues to recover from a foot injury.

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.

  21. 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.
  22. 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.
