The USC basketball team won their regular season finale on the road at Mississippi State Saturday, 74-62. The Gamecocks had to get the victory at Humphrey Coliseum without their leader, head coach Frank Martin, who was suspended for the Gamecocks final regular season game for his treatment of freshman guard Duane Notice against the Florida Gators.
Martin did not make the trip to Starkville and the coaching duties were left to Assistant Matt Figger. Earlier Monday Martin held a press conference to expound upon what Saturday was like for him, not being with his team as they competed against a conference opponent to round out the 2014 season.
Guards Sindarius Thornwell and Brenton Williams also addressed the media, and much of the focus was geared towards their thoughts on Coach Martin, and how they perceive his demeanor on and off the court.
