Covid hit the USC men’s basketball program hard this month. The Gamecocks last played a game December 5th. Soon after that loss to Houston, operations were shut down and the Gamecocks had to cancel/postpone games with Wofford, George Washington, Clemson and Kentucky. The holidays came and players went their own way, and they returned to campus this past weekend. Coach Frank Martin said they were tested Sunday and they practiced some Sunday. On the SEC conference call Monday morning, Martin said he expects to play this Saturday’s game against Florida A&M at the Colonial Life Arena, but he doesn’t know how many players he will have available.
