The Gamecocks dropped a 62-54 road contest to Georgia last Saturday after being outscored 9-1 in the overtime period.
The game was another example of South Carolina’s inability to close the deal down the stretch. The Gamecocks will have an opportunity to make up for an early close loss in conference play when the Missouri Tigers visit Colonial Life Arena this Thursday. South Carolina held a 56-55 lead on the road at Missouri in January before falling 71-65.
Frank Martin spoke to the media today about his team’s focus and energy on the eve of the matchup with the Tigers. He also talked about the need to change the basketball culture at USC and the aspects of the program that he feels must change.
