After a more than disappointing football season, South Carolina fans are looking to men’s basketball coach Frank Martin to lift their Gamecock spirits this winter.

Three years ago, the Gamecocks made their state and university more than proud when they made it to the Final Four during March Madness. The team has fallen short of making the NCAA tournament since.

Former Gamecock star Chris Silva joined the NBA last season, leaving the Gamecocks with a young team, but according to Martin, a team that has plenty of talent and depth.

The Gamecocks are currently 4-1 this season as they head to Mexico this week to finish up the Cancun Challenge with a Tuesday game against Wichita State.

The projected starters for Tuesday’s match are likely the same players Gamecock fans can expect to step out on the court at each of South Carolina’s regular season match-ups.
