  3. Women's Basketball 12/1/2019 | From USC Sports Informatiob | GCF Staff Report Gamecocks Knock Off No. 2/2 Baylor to Claim Tournament Title Box Score ST. THOMAS, U.S.V.I. – Freshman Aliyah Boston scored a career-high 20 points and pulled down 13 rebounds as No. 5/6 South Carolina took down the No. 2/2 Baylor Lady Bears, 74-59, to end the reigning National Champs' 36-game win streak and win the Paradise Jam Reef Division title Saturday night. While Boston and Mikiah Herbert Harrigan finished off the win, it was senior point guard Tyasha Harris' offense and command of the team that drove the Gamecocks advantage throughout the night. Boston finished with her fourth double-double of the season, finishing her first career 20-point game with 10 points in the fourth quarter. Harris tied Boston's game-high 20 points on top of her seven assists, four rebounds and two steals. Herbert Harrigan finished with 13 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and two assists. The game was nip and tuck throughout, although it featured just two ties and one lead change. On a highly efficient offensive night – 52.8 percent field goal shooting – the Gamecock defense was locked in throughout. Entering the game averaging 91.9 points per game, Baylor netted just 59 points – its lowest point total since scoring 57 against Oregon State on March 28, 2016. The Lady Bears shot just 34.8 percent from the field, including 30.0 percent in the second half, and 2-of-9 from 3-point range. Didi Richards and Queen Egbo netted just 10 points combined after entering the game averaging 10.6 and 15.3, respectively. In a first quarter that seemed to have both teams scoring at will, Baylor jumped out to a quick 8-2 lead, but it would prove to be their largest lead of the game. The Gamecocks got rolling when Harris hit a 3-pointer from the right wing then followed it with a steal and a quick pull-up jumper to put her team right back in it at 8-7. Three minutes later, Herbert Harrigan's 3 from the left wing knotted the game at 14-14 with 3:58 to go in the opening quarter. Baylor reclaimed the lead on a 5-2 run, but Destanni Henderson added a 3 to tie the game at 19-19 and open a 10-0 run that gave the Gamecocks a 26-19 lead less than three minutes into the second quarter. Defensively, the surge included four Lady Bear turnovers – three of which came courtesy of a Gamecock steal – and an emphatic Boston block that brought her hometown crowd to its feet. The Gamecock lead stretched to 10 at 38-28 before Baylor made its run, taking advantage of a spate of South Carolina turnovers to cut the deficit to three at 38-35 at the half. After Harris finished the first half with 13 points and four assists, she continued to hit key baskets in the second half. After Baylor closed within two points a 42-40 midway through the third quarter, ball movement found her open for a moment in the corner, from which she buried her second 3-pointer of the game to give her young team some breathing room. When Baylor threatened again with 90 seconds left in the third quarter, another Gamecock with championship experience drove the Lady Bears back as Herbert Harrigan hit a pair of free throws to turn a one-point lead into a three-point advantage then came up with a pair of defensive rebounds to preserve that lead heading into the final period. Baylor got within two points three more times in the opening five minutes of the fourth quarter, but the Gamecocks would not be denied. Harris found Boston for a layup to stay in front first, then hit a pair of free throws to counter a layup from Caitlin Bickle for a 52-56 lead with 7:15 to play. A Baylor 3-pointer with 6:28 on the clock again made it a two-point game, but Herbert Harrigan stemmed the tide once more, hitting back-to-back layups to key a 15-2 run – powered largely by Boston's dominance inside and finished by a Harris layup to seal the tournament title on point differential – to close out the victory. GAMECHANGER South Carolina's defense held Baylor scoreless over the final 3:41 to turn the Gamecocks' five-point advantage into the 15-point victory needed to secure the tournament's division title, breaking the three-team tie on point differential. KEY STAT South Carolina shot 66.7 percent from the field in the fourth quarter, including 4-of-4 shooting from Aliyah Boston, who turned in 10 points and six rebounds in the final period. NOTABLES Aliyah Boston was named Paradise Jam Reef Division MVP, while Mikiah Herbert Harrigan earned All-Tournament honors. Defeating the No. 2 team in the country matches the Gamecocks' best victory. South Carolina previously beat then-No. 2 Mississippi State 62-51 in the 2018 SEC Tournament championship game (March 4, 2018). Baylor's 59 points was its lowest scoring output since March 28, 2016. South Carolina is now 20-16 against top-10 opponents since the start of the 2014-15 season, which includes two top-five wins this season. Boston and Harris each posted their first 20-point games of the season. Boston scored 10 of hers in the fourth quarter, while Harris got the offense started with 13 of hers coming in the first half. UP NEXT The Gamecocks (8-1) return to the mainland for a clash at Temple next weekend. Action is set to get underway in Philadelphia at 3 p.m. on Sat., Dec. 7.

THOMAS, U.S.V.I. – No. 5/6 South Carolina turned in a solid defensive performance and got big nights from their two Caribbean natives in a 68-53 win over Washington State in the second round of the Paradise Jam Reef Division Friday night. St. Thomas product Aliyah Boston narrowly missed a double-double with 15 points and eight rebounds, while Anguilla native Mikiah Herbert Harrigan poured in 20 points to lead the offense. The Gamecock victory was built on defense, though, as South Carolina returned to its lock-down effort on that end of the court. Washington State scored just nine points each in the first and third quarters on combined 25.0 percent shooting. The Gamecocks also scored 23 points off 21 Cougar turnovers. South Carolina's offense started off the game on fire, and the Cougars offense closed it the same way. The Gamecocks used ball movement and attacking the rim to build a 16-point lead after the first quarter and were in front by 15 late in the second before a string of Washington State 3s closed the gap to 37-32 at halftime. The Gamecocks took over in the third quarter, especially on the defensive end, allowing the Cougars just nine points in the period – the 14th single-digit quarter by an opponent this season. Meanwhile, all five Gamecock starters contributed to the 13-3 run that opened the second half. After South Carolina stretched out a 50-35 advantage just four minutes into the period, both teams went cold over the final six minutes of the third quarter, leaving the Gamecocks with a 51-41 lead heading into the fourth. In the final period, the seniors dominated with Harris and Herbert Harrigan scoring the first nine points of the period while the defense held the Cougars scoreless over the first four minutes of the quarter to build a 60-41 lead that Washington State could not overcome. GAMECHANGER The Gamecocks hit their first four shots of the second half to stretch a five-point advantage to 12 just 2:22 into the period with four of the five starters hitting a field goal in that timeframe. KEY STAT The Gamecocks limited Washington State leading scorer Borislava Hristova, who entered the game averaging 21.4 points, to just nine points on 4-of-15 shooting NOTABLES The Gamecocks' starting frontcourt of Aliyah Boston and Mikiah Herbert Harrigan scored 35 of the team's 68 points and shot 68.2 percent (15-of-22) from the field. South Carolina returned to its dominance of the paint, outscoring Washington State 40-22 inside. The Gamecocks opened each half on an 11-2 run with all five starters contributing points in each of the two runs. Herbert Harrigan's 20 points marked her second 20-point game of the season and the fifth in her career. She and Boston are tied for the team lead with seven double-figure scoring games this season. UP NEXT South Carolina closes out the Paradise Jam on Saturday night, facing No. 2/2 Baylor in the final game of the tournament at 8 p.m. ET.

THOMAS, U.S.V.I. – No. 5/6 South Carolina suffered a rare bad-shooting night, falling to No. 17/23 Indiana 71-57 in the Paradise Jam. The Gamecocks led after the first quarter and dominated the third quarter, but foul trouble to key Gamecocks derailed the offense late in the loss. Three Gamecocks finished in double figures, led by Mikiah Herbert Harrigan's 13 points. The senior also led the team in rebounding with eight. Freshman Aliyah Boston was one of the Gamecocks saddled with foul trouble throughout the game, playing just 14 minutes but still finishing with 10 points. Freshman Zia Cooke netted 10 points as well. The Gamecocks hit first with a 7-3 run to open the game, but the Hoosiers started hitting from outside and crashing the glass. The two teams battled back and forth through much of the first half South Carolina's offense slowed when Aliyah Boston had to go to the bench with her second foul with 4:31 left in the first half, allowing Indiana to carry a 38-31 lead into halftime. South Carolina bounced back in the third. With the defense locked in, the Gamecocks got things rolling in their most successful territory – the paint – out-rebounding Indiana 20-6 in the period and scoring 12 of their 34 points in the paint in the quarter. Herbert Harrigan and Brea Beal were the catalysts as their effort and energy out of the break put the Hoosiers back on their heels. The duo accounted for 11 of the Gamecocks' first 13 points in the quarter, including Beal's transition layup to go up 44-42 with 4:17 to go in the quarter. A 7-0 surge, fueled by holding Indiana to one shot on each offensive possession, gave the Gamecocks a 51-47 advantage heading into the final period. Back-to-back turnovers opened the fourth quarter and the first five possessions included another one as South Carolina's offense and rebounding waned. Indiana went up 53-51 just over two minutes into the quarter, but Cooke answered with a traditional three-point play to go back up 54-53. Indiana reclaimed the lead by driving to the rim, where Boston was limited by four fouls. With the Gamecocks trailing 57-54 with 4:58 to play, Tyasha Harris picked up her fifth foul, and a minute later, Boston was sent out with her fifth foul of the night. The Hoosiers took advantage of the Gamecocks' frustration and powered their way to the win. GAMECHANGER After point guard Tyasha Harris fouled out with 4:58 to play, the Gamecocks scored just three points the rest of the game. KEY STAT South Carolina shot 51.4 percent (18-of-35) combined in the first and third quarters, but managed to hit just 20.0 percent (6-of-30) in the second and fourth quarters combined. NOTABLES South Carolina's six points in the fourth quarter were the second fewest scored in a single quarter in program history. Indiana's 71 points are the most by a Gamecock opponent this season. With a team-high five assists, Tyasha Harris moved into third place in the Gamecocks' career assists charts. Her 547 are 48 away from second place on the list. Prior to fouling out in this game, Harris had committed just five fouls in the previous six games combined. She has fouled out of just one other game since the start of her junior year. UP NEXT The Gamecocks are back in action at the Paradise Jam Friday against Washington State. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.

  7. I've been sitting back and watching the Gamecocks men as they have battled with Boston University in a losing effort and with Gardner-Webb in a close-shave win. It strikes me that this is EXACTLY what I predicted would happen, and I said this all WAAAY back in June. Take a look at the post that I made on June 16th (see below, or look at "Basketball thoughts" topic from June). Do keep in mind that I was pretty roundly criticized for saying that we were young and inexperienced going into this season (mentioning specifically that Minaya and Moss were coming off injury, and that it would take some time for them to get back to full form). I felt then, and I reiterate now, that we're an immensely talented team, but a team that will take some time to find out how it wants to play, and what it is capable of doing. For those that think that the sky is falling, read the FULL post on that June 16th date. I, personally, think that these are just normal bumps in the road with a team finding it's identity and with a Coach who is still feeling out his starting lineup. Give us 3 more games... by the time we get past Houston, I think we'll be a MUCH different team. I also predict that we'll see a defensive shift. A mindset change for how we want to be known defensively - one where the NATION will take notice of Frank Martin's team's defensive efforts. I'm going to go so far as to say that the December game against Virginia is going to shock the national pundits. We may not win, but we're going to give Virginia a handful that game. They will remember the Gamecocks and the NCAA will look at that game SPECIFICALLY come selection Sunday. You heard it here... on November 25th. Mark that date, and mark this post on your calendars. Keep your chin up, fellow Frank Martin fans... VERY good things are just around the corner for this team.

  11. 10 over the Tigers: Gamecocks with an 84-48 rout Sunday at Littlejohn Coliseum Nov. 24, 2019 South Carolina’s dominance over Clemson in women’s basketball now spans a full decade. With an 84-48 rout Sunday at Littlejohn Coliseum, the No. 5 Gamecocks have now won 10 in a row against the Tigers, extending the longest win streak in the series by either program. Dawn Staley’s team did so in large part by exploiting Clemson’s biggest weakness turnovers. The Tigers entered the game ranked 332nd nationally with 22 turnovers per game and gave the ball away that many times Sunday, leading directly to 23 Gamecock points, as well as 26 on fast breaks. “We knew we had to come in here and disrupt. We knew we had to come here and apply a lot of pressure and not allow them to get comfortable in their sets,” Staley said. “And I thought we did that for the entire game.” It was most apparent in the third quarter, when eight Clemson turnovers translated to Gamecock runs of 6-0 and 16-2 to bookend a 23-6 South Carolina advantage in the period, blowing the game wide open. “We played bad. When you play bad against a good team, you’re going to get beat bad,” Clemson coach Amanda Butler said. Six South Carolina players wound up scoring in double figures, led by senior forward Mikiah Herbert Harrigan and freshman forward Aliyah Boston with 13 each. Clemson, meanwhile, was led by senior forward Kobi Thornton, who posted a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds, but she picked up four fouls early in the third quarter and was limited throughout the second half.

The Gamecocks' (3-0) defense was stifling early, allowing the Mountaineers (0-3) just three points in the opening quarter, while the Gamecock offense shot 63.6 percent in the period to put the game out of reach early. Senior Mikiah Herbert Harrigan led the way with a game-high 21 points and four blocks. The Pembroke Pines, Fla., native pulled down six rebounds and picked up three steals as well. Freshman Aliyah Boston made a show of things on both ends of the floor, scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 rebounds for her second double-double of the season. Sophomore Destanni Henderson displayed her offensive prowess with 16 points and three assists. Senior Tyasha Harris cracked double figures for the third time this year with her 11 points, and she dished out four assists as well. Sophomore Victoria Saxton made it back-to-back games of double-digit points with 10 today to go along with her six rebounds and four blocks. Freshman Brea Beal rounded out the six Gamecocks in double figures with 10 points to go with her nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks. Carolina took over early with Boston opening the scoring with a layup. Beal sank a pair of free throws, followed by a three from fellow freshman Zia Cooke to open the flood gates. Boston added another bucket, then Harris scored her first points of the game to make it 11-0 before App State called a timeout to try and slow things down. Unfortunately for the Mountaineers, the timeout didn't slow Carolina's momentum. The Garnet and Black used a smothering defensive presence and kept the offensive pressure up to open the game on a 32-0 run. App State got on the board with a three from Lainey Gosnell with 20 seconds remaining, but a Herbert Harrigan three gave Carolina a 35-3 lead after the first quarter. Junior LeLe Grissett got in on the scoring with a jumper to open the second, followed by a Beal layup and a Henderson layup to make it 41-3. The Mountaineers responded with a Pre Stanley jumper to cut into the lead. After another Boston bucket, Ashley Polacek drained a three for App State to make it 43-8, but the Gamecocks closed the half on a 10-1 run to take a 53-9 halftime lead. App State found some offensive rhythm in the third, but Herbert Harrigan locked in during the third frame to score eight of her 21 points and help send Carolina into the fourth with a 72-30 lead. The fourth saw the Gamecocks add to their lead with Beal scoring six of her 10 points, and Saxton swatting a shot away with 1:30 remaining, the 17th block for Carolina on the day, breaking the previous single-game record of 16 blocks as the Gamecocks cruised to the 92-50 win. GAMECHANGERMikiah Herbert Harrigan made an impact all over the floor with a game-high 21 points, six rebounds, four blocks, three steals and two assists. KEY STAT The Gamecocks held the Mountaineers to 10.3 percent shooting in the first half, allowing only nine points, tying the fifth-lowest points allowed total for a half in program history. NOTABLES The three points scored by App State in the first quarter tied the record for fewest points allowed in a quarter in program history, and the Mountaineers' 5.6 percent field goal shooting in the frame was the lowest ever by a Gamecock opponent. The 17 blocks tallied by the Gamecocks broke the previous record of 16 originally set against Winthrop on Dec. 13, 2015, and tied in this season's opener against Alabama State (Nov. 5, 2019). Three Gamecocks finished with four blocks – Aliyah Boston, Mikiah Herbert Harrigan, Victaria Saxton. The Gamecocks handed out 25 assists on 37 made field goals (67.6 percent) with eight of the 10 Gamecocks in the game handing out at least two and three finishing with four – Brea Beal, LeLe Grissett, Tyasha Harris. Mikiah Herbert Harrigan set a personal career high with 10 made field goals, eclipsing her previous high of nine (vs. Arkansas, 3/8/19). With her 10 points today, Victaria Saxton has two games with double-digit scoring, tying the total amount of games she broke double figures as a freshman. Redshirt-freshman Laeticia Amihere was not at today's game because she is with Team Canada at the FIBA Women's Olympic Pre-Qualifying Americas Tournament in Edmonton. She will return to the Gamecocks this week. UP NEXT The Gamecocks (4-0) take the floor at home once again to host USC Upstate (3-1) on Thursday. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Colonial Life Arena.

In her return to the buckeye state, Cooke posted career highs in points and rebounds with seven, including five on the offensive end. Sophomore Victoria Saxton poured in a season-high 13 points off the bench to go along with six rebounds and three blocks. Senior Mikiah Herbert Harrigan added 10 points and a team-high four blocks. Freshman Brea Beal continued her all-around contributions, reeling in 10 rebounds for the second time in as many games. After a sluggish opening few minutes where Dayton briefly held a 5-4 lead, Beal evened things up with a free throw, and another one from the charity stripe for freshman Aliyah Boston gave Carolina the lead. A jumper from Herbert Harrigan kick-started a 15-1 run where the senior scored five of her 10 points, and Cooke tallied 10 of her game-high 27 to give the Gamecocks a 22-6 at the end of the first quarter. Carolina kept the pressure up in the second with junior LeLe Grissett getting on the board with a layup on the first possession of the quarter. The Flyers stopped the bleeding with three quick points from Shakeela Fowler off a jumper and free throw, but back-to-back buckets from Saxton and senior Tyasha Harris squashed any momentum Dayton had gathered. Boston added two more from the paint as the offense kept rolling to a 41-21 halftime lead. Cooke continued her scoring barrage with the first points of the third. Dayton's Julia Chandler chipped at the Carolina lead with a 3-pointer, but an extended 9-0 run kept the Flyers from gaining any altitude. Cooke added another jumper, Boston poured one in from the paint, redshirt-freshman Laeticia Amihere got on the board with a jumper of her own as Carolina carried a 55-32 lead into the fourth. Herbert Harrigan opened up the scoring in the fourth with a layup, followed by a pair of free throws from Saxton to keep the lead at 25. The teams traded buckets for most of the fourth with Cooke scoring seven of her points in the final frame as the Gamecocks put the finishing touches on the 75-49 win. GAMECHANGER Cooke caught fire early in the game and never looked back, eclipsing her previous career high by 14 points (13 points against Alabama State on Nov. 5). She continued her career night with seven rebounds, topping the four she pulled down against #4/5 Maryland on Nov. 10. KEY STAT South Carolina smothered Dayton defensively, only allowing the Flyers to shoot 22.2 percent from the field. NOTABLES Carolina used its athleticism to its advantage, outscoring Dayton 14-5 on fast break opportunities.

  21. Sunday's game ought to be really big. For one, we need our pay back. I really expect Coach Martin to get a lot of the guys playing time again. Wy. is not going to be like Columbia Int. but they won't be to different either. Secondly, I really think we will score a lot. In Wyoming 1st game they had 1 guy score 75% of their points. They only had 3 Off. rebounds, 2 blocks, and only 4 assist the whole game, a 54-40 win over Idaho St. I really do not think we should have any problem putting them down. If I did not have to work I would be there. We get 5 home games to open the season before we travels to Mexico for the Cancun Challenge. Hope we fill the CLA up real good for those and encourage our guys. I really hope they start 8-0.
  22. South Carolina started the 2019-2020 season in proper fashion by routing Alabama State 103-43 Tuesday night in Colonial Life Arena. Freshman Post Aliyah Boston made her announcement to the collegiate game in impressive style, recording a triple-double in her very first game with 12 pts, 12 rebounds, and 10 blocks in just 21 minutes of play (!!!), and threw in 3 steals for good measure. It was the 7th triple-double in program history. It may not be the last. Six Gamecocks scored double-digits: Zia Cooke and Kiki Herbert-Harrigan led with 13 pts each, Boston with her 12, Harris added 11, and Grissett scored 10 pts. Also joining the dbl-digit scoring train was freshman walk-on Olivia Thompson, who goes 4 for 7 including 2-5 from the 3 pt. line, to score 10 pts in just 7 minutes in the 4th Quarter. The blowout in itself is not that surprising, really. This season's game was the 3rd contest between the two programs in as many seasons, with USC out-scoring ASU 193-69 in the other two, so this score fits right in. But it was good to see the balance and distribution of scoring throughout the game, much like the exhibition game Friday versus North Georgia. As well as the defensive intensity: the Gamecocks jumped out to a 43-24 lead in the first half, then turned the volume to "11" on the dial after halftime. They shut Alabama State down, out-scoring them 60-19, even though Alabama State shot with the Gamecocks 33 attempts to 36, and tied them on 2nd-half rebounds with 22 each. Both teams were close on free-throw attempts after halftime as well, with Gamecocks having a slight lead there 19 to 15. But USC shot 22 for 36 (61%) to the Lady Hornets shooting 4-33 (12%). That shooting discrepancy will lose a game for you every time. Overall, the Gamecocks collected 16 blocks and 14 steals, and forced the Lady Hornets into committing 23 turnovers. The Gamecocks (1-0) now will travel to College Park to face the 4th-ranked Maryland Terrapins this Sunday at 3 pm. We'll get our first glimpse of just how good this Gamecock team can be this season......

  24. **Nov. 06, 2019 - Wednesday, 7:00 p.m.** South Carolina Gamecocks vs. NORTH ALABAMA Here you go free to listen if not near a radio or TV -------------------------------------------------------------- Predictions for South Carolina men’s basketball season South Carolina begins season No. 8 under Frank Martin when it hosts North Alabama on Wednesday at Colonial Life Arena. Here are six bold predictions for what could happen over the next four months: JERMAINE COUISNARD WILL FINISH SECOND ON THE TEAM IN SCORING A.J. Lawson scored 23 points in last Wednesday’s exhibition win over CIU — and that’s without taking a shot until South Carolina’s ninth possession. The sophomore was selective with his offensive aggression, and still wound up having eight more points than any of his teammates. With Chris Silva gone, expect Lawson’s scoring to go from 13 a game to in the 15-18 range. He’s a shoo-in to lead the Gamecocks in that category. The real question is who finishes behind Lawson. Here’s a vote for Jermaine Couisnard. While he’s yet to play in a college game, the redshirt freshman has received endorsements from the likes of Jo Jo English, Sindarius Thornwell and R.J. Barrett. He also had two 40-point games in the SC Pro-Am over the summer. Couisnard could begin the season as the sixth man, but expect major minutes for the East Chicago native. Frank Martin said last Wednesday that Lawson and Couisnard play “really, really well” together. A Gamecock hasn’t been selected in the first round of the NBA draft since Renaldo Balkman in 2006, but Lawson is trending to break that drought. He tested the professional waters after an All-SEC freshman season, but opted to return for another year with the Gamecocks. It should serve well both the player and program. Lawson had a great summer of exposure in leading his homeland of Canada to the quarterfinal round of the FIBA under-19 World Cup and then being selected as a participant in Chris Paul’s camp. Position versatility is key at the next level. The lanky guard can play anywhere from the point to the wing. His seven assists against CIU — the second-most of his career, if the game counted — are a sign of an improved skill set. By the end of this season, Lawson will have a good feel for where he stands with NBA prospects. He’ll face six players — including Georgia’s Anthony Edwards, the potential No. 1 pick -- who are among Sports Illustrated’s first round mock draft. FRANK MARTIN WILL GET HIS FIRST WIN AT CLEMSON Martin has two wins in seven years against the Tigers, neither of them coming on Clemson’s campus. South Carolina won as the road team in 2015-16, but the game was played in Greenville as Littlejohn Coliseum was being renovated. Littlejohn will host the rivals Dec. 15. South Carolina should enter at 7-3 or better while Clemson, coming off a conference game at Florida State, figures to be 7-2 or worse. The Tigers, picked to finish 11th in the ACC, lost four starters off last year’s team. Adding Alabama transfer — and Columbia native — Tevin Mack helps Clemson, but USC has a deeper roster, particularly if Keyshawn Bryant returns from his knee injury by this time. This game, sandwiched between Houston at home and Virginia on the road, is part of Carolina’s most important stretch of the non-conference season. South Carolina needs it to boost an NCAA Tournament résumé. Expect the Gamecocks to break their three-game skid to the Tigers. SOUTH CAROLINA WILL THREATEN A SCHOOL RECORD FOR 3-POINT ATTEMPTS The Gamecocks are a guard-oriented bunch in Year 1 of the post-Silva era. Yes, they’ll still play inside-out offensively, but Martin knows where their strengths are — and he’ll coach accordingly. Lawson, Couisnard, Jair Bolden, Justin Minaya and T.J. Moss can all launch. With Couisnard out for an illness, the other four combined to go 8 of 12 from 3-point range against CIU, with Lawson and Bolden hitting three apiece. Even with Silva as the offensive centerpiece, South Carolina took an average of 21.5 and 20.6 3s per game the last two seasons, the highest marks of the Martin era. Take Silva — and his paint presence — out and the Gamecocks are likely to top those numbers. The school record for 3 attempts in a season is 760, which the 2001-02 team did over 37 games (20.5 average). If the Gamecocks average 22 3-attempts over 35 games — a projected four beyond the regular season — they’ll get to 770. WILDENS LEVEQUE WILL LEAD ALL TRUE FRESHMEN IN MINUTES, THE WHOLE TEAM IN BLOCKS In Martin’s seven seasons at South Carolina he’s had at least one true freshman average at least 19 minutes per game. There are really only two candidates to keep that tradition alive in 2019-20. Guard depth will make it difficult on Trae Hannibal or Trey Anderson to crack the rotation, but Wildens Leveque and Jalyn McCreary are in a good position. Bryant’s injury means Martin will shy away early from a small lineup, allowing a true “four” or power forward to start next to Maik Kotsar. Here’s to giving a slight edge to the 6-foot-11 Leveque over a 6-7 McCreary, 6-7 Alanzo Frink and 6-9 Micaiah Henry. Leveque’s defensive potential is better fit to fill the void left by Silva. SOUTH CAROLINA WILL WIN 21 GAMES, BE SWEATING OUT SELECTION SUNDAY Even with Bryant’s injury, a 20-11 (10-8 SEC) regular season seems doable. Add a 1-1 showing in the SEC Tournament and you’ll have an interesting résumé for the NCAA Tournament committee. How did the Gamecocks go 10-3 in the non-conference? Here’s to saying USC beats Wichita State in Cancun and then goes 2-2 against West Virginia, Clemson, Houston and Virginia. What’s included in the 10-8 conference record? Here’s to saying the Gamecocks win their home games against Florida and Tennessee, but road wins only come at Texas A&M and Vanderbilt. All enough to be back in the Big Dance? Here’s to saying yes — as an 11-seed sent to Dayton for a “First Four” game.
