  1. No. 10 Houston vs. South Carolina When Dec. 5th, 6:00 pm The Houston Cougars will be going for their fourth consecutive win when they face the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday night. The Cougars are coming off a 64-53 win over Texas Tech as three-point underdogs. The Gamecocks are coming off a 69-58 win over Tulsa in a game they were favored to win by 2.5 points. The Cougars continue to excel at rebounding and defensively, program tenets under Sampson. Houston held its first three opponents to 36.7 percent shooting while forcing 17.7 turnovers per game, numbers that would cause most coaches to boast. The Gamecocks, like many programs across the nation, stumbled out of the blocks without the benefit of exhibition games. South Carolina dropped its opener 78-62 to Liberty after shooting 39 percent while allowing 56.3 percent shooting on the defensive end. Houston and South Carolina have split the six meetings between them. Gamecocks Going For Second Consecutive Win The Gamecocks bounced back from their season-opening loss with an 11-point win over Tulsa in their last game. They will be going for the upset and their second win in a row when they face the Cougars on Saturday. South Carolina hasn’t looked good offensively through two games, with the team averaging 65.5 points per game. They played better in their last game, finishing with 69 points, but they will need a better performance on Saturday. Jermaine Couisnard led the way for the Gamecocks in their last game with 20 points and four assists. AJ Lawson finished with 17 points and three rebounds, while Justin Minaya added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Gamecocks, who had three players score in double figures. The Gamecocks have played well defensively, giving up 68 points per game. They gave up 58 points in their last game and will need a similar effort if they want to pick up the win. Cougars Trying To Avoid Upset The Cougars picked up their third consecutive win of the season with an upset over 14th-ranked Texas Tech, which transported them to #10 in this week’s polls. They will be trying to prevent the Gamecocks from doing the same thing to them as they try to pick up their fourth win in a row. Houston has played well offensively, averaging 73.7 points per game. The team was held to 64 points by the Red Raiders and will try to bounce back with a better performance on Saturday. Marcus Sasser led the way for the Cougars with 17 points and three rebounds. Quentin Grimes finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Tramon Mark added 11 points and two rebounds. Houston has done a great job defensively, holding opponents to 52 points per game. The team gave up 53 points in their last game and will need a similar effort to get past the Gamecocks. Houston wins this game comfortably. The Gamecocks haven’t played well offensively so far, averaging 65.5 points per game through their first two games. Their offensive struggles will continue in this game because Houston is one of the best defensive teams in the nation, holding opponents to 52 points per game. Even though the Gamecocks have played well defensively, holding their two opponents to 68 points per game. They haven’t faced a team as good as the Cougars offensively and will have a hard time slowing them down. Prediction: Houston Cougars

  4. Gamecocks men's basketball has schedule change due to COVID-19 11/25/2020 At the start of the 2020-2021 college basketball season, we have already seen plenty of scheduling adjustments as teams battle COVID-19 issues. Another team was added to that list, as South Carolina announced it will not be able to play the exhibition game against Coker that was scheduled to happen Wednesday night. Luckily for the Gamecocks, the issue was not within their own roster. Because of Coker’s inability to return COVID-19 tests in time, South Carolina basketball will take the floor for the first time this season on Saturday against Liberty in Kansas City. It’s a frustrating situation for Gamecock fans that were looking forward to seeing their team in action on Wednesday, but it could certainly be worse as other teams around the country battle more serious COVID-19 issues.

  7. Martin, Gamecocks ready for new hoops season (AUDIO) November 23, 2020 Frank Martin opens his 9th season as head basketball coach at USC this week. The Gamecocks play an exhibition game with Coker Wednesday night then open their season in a four-team event this weekend in Kansas City against Liberty. Martin has put together one of the most successful runs of any Gamecock basketball coach with six straight non-losing seasons, though he’s only taken the Gamecocks to one NCAA Tournament and one NIT in his eight seasons. But his hopes are high for this year’s team which is made up of a group of veterans, and a group of guards that can rival any in the SEC. Martin said Monday small forward Nathan Nelson suffered a broken hand last week and will be out a few weeks. Monday morning Martin spoke with the media via Zoom about the upcoming campaign.

  17. Gamecocks basketball coach Frank Martin joins SportsTalk Friday night (AUDIO) Dec. 28, 2019, | sportstalk Frank Martin knew he was doing an interview on SportsTalk Friday night right in the middle of bowl season.

  19. How South Carolina broke Virginia's defense Dec. 23, 2019 Just glancing at the stats before Sunday’s game, it looked like the Gamecocks didn’t have much of a shot to score 50 points against Virginia, let alone 70.

That didn’t matter to South Carolina, who put together arguably its best offensive performance of the year against the reigning national champions. (VIEW ARTICLE) FREE GAMECOCKCENTRAL
