  1. Big man headed to Gamecocks right now STR / January 8, 2021 USC basketball coach Frank Martin Thursday night had to announce another stoppage in his season due to Covid. But his recruiting continues and he landed a commitment from 6-11 Tre-Vaughn Minott, a native of Montreal who last attended the NBA Academy Latin America. And not a commitment for next season, but a commitment that starts immediately. Minott arrived in Columbia earlier this week and enrolled in school Wednesday. He will be eligible right away to play for the Gamecocks during the rest of this season. “This is a great opportunity and I’m excited to be down in Columbia putting in the work with their great coaching staff,” Minott told North Pole Hoops. “Above all, I want to get better and help this team win a championship.”

  9. Things to Watch for vs Florida A&M 1/01/2021 South Carolina is scheduled to host Florida A&M Saturday, its first game in a month. Will they play Will they actually play? There is a thin line between being able to play or not to begin with, and it’s even smaller for South Carolina since the team is already going through the various protocols. Not to mention the fact that Florida A&M has to stay healthy. About 11:00 am Friday, Frank Martin tweeted that the game is on. We will wait and see. Who will play? On Tuesday, Martin guessed that the Gamecocks would have nine available players. If nobody else is exposed (which could wipe out a total of four players. Cooper had been practicing with the scout team instead of learning the Gamecocks’ system Cooper is not very well-prepared, but there aren’t many alternatives now. Because the team had to quarantine twice, players weren’t able to work out for most of the last month. Nobody is in game shape, and yet, here comes a game. Practice Martin estimated that South Carolina will have had three full practices in the month between the Houston and Florida A&M games. That’s not good. Look at the Rattlers Florida A&M has played seven games, but has yet to play a home game. MJ Randolph leads Florida A&M in scoring at 16.2 points per game. The versatile 6-4 junior guard is a do everything player for the Rattlers, also leading the team in rebounds, assists, steals, and free throws. Randolph is a rarity these days - a player who still relies on a mid-range game (he is just 1-3 from three this season). Randolph scored a career-high 27 in the Rattlers’ lone win this season, a 76-70 victory over Austin Peay.

  10. Frank Martin details his #Gamecocks battle with Covid-19 with Video 12/30/2020 USC basketball coach Frank Martin has his fingers, and toes, crossed that he can get his team back on the court for a scheduled game this Saturday night at the Colonial Life Arena. The Gamecocks have had their last five games cancelled due to Covid issues. And that means they’ve had very little practice as well. Meeting with the media Tuesday via Zoom, Martin said his team is healthy enough to practice, and his hope is enough players can make it thru the week to take the floor Saturday night.
  11. Cooper Eligible For Competition Men's Basketball | 12/18/2020 Story Links COLUMBIA, S.C. – University of South Carolina sophomore guard Ford Cooper Jr. is immediately eligible to take the court for the Gamecocks this season after the NCAA Division I Council granted a blanket waiver allowing transfer student-athletes to compete immediately. "We're excited for Ford to compete this season," Gamecock head coach Frank Martin said. "He's worked hard in practice this fall to learn our system, and he is another experienced guard that adds to the depth we have in our backcourt. We are excited to see him in a Gamecock uniform in 2020-21." Cooper transferred to Carolina after spending his freshman season at Missouri State, where he played in 27 games with five starts. His 2.9 assist-to-turnover ratio in Missouri Valley Conference contests ranked third in the league. His top scoring output of the season came in a seven-point performance versus Evansville, and his five assists in a matchup at Drake marked a season best. Cooper had 10 games with two or more assists last season as well. The Council granted a blanket waiver allowing immediate eligibility to student-athletes who meet certain criteria: the student-athlete must be enrolled full time at the school for the Fall 2020 term, it must be the first transfer from a four-year school, the student-athlete must have left their previous school in good standing academically and not facing disciplinary suspension, and both the head coach and student-athlete must certify that impermissible recruiting did not take place.

  14. 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

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
