USC head basketball coach Frank Martin has been suspended for Saturday’s final regular season game by Athletic Director, Ray Tanner.
“The one-game suspension is a result of inappropriate verbal communication as it relates to the well-being of our student-athletes,” Tanner said.
Martin will not make the trip to Starkville with the team. Associate head coach Matt Figger will take over the coaching duties in Martin’s absence.
The Gamecocks (11-19, 4-13) and the Bulldogs (13-17, 3-14) will tip things off Saturday at Humphrey Coliseum at 4:00.
