The USC basketball team is coming off its worst week since Frank Martin took over the program. The Gamecocks were throttled by 39 points at Florida and then came home and lost beatable Georgia team by 11 points. Martin met with reporters to underscore why the blame for his team’s struggles should fall on his shoulders and take a look ahead at tomorrow night’s matchup at Kentucky. Yeah, a game at Rupp Arena isn’t exactly what you’d order up for a slump buster, but that’s what is waiting for the Gamecocks.
USC is 12-9 and 2-6 in the SEC. Kentucky is 15-6, 6-2 in the conference. The game tips off shortly after 9:00 Tuesday night on ESPNU.
