USC basketball coach Frank Martin met with the media via Zoom Friday morning and made no excuses for his team’s lopsided loss at Coastal Carolina Wednesday night. Martin said his team basically stunk, and he had a feeling going in after the shoot-around that they would play poorly. But he also said during a long basketball season a team will have a clunker every now and then, the key is how you bounce back. The Gamecocks host Georgetown Sunday afternoon and Martin is confident his team will play better.
As for the health of point guard Jermaine Couisnard who has missed the last two games with a groin injury, Martin said he’s getting better and they’ll know more after Saturday’s workout if he’s able to play Sunday.
