COLUMBIA, S.C. – First-year head men’s basketball coach Frank Martin and his team held an open practice on Friday, Oct. 26, at Colonial Life Arena.

We’re excited for the challenges; we’re excited to continue to work. They’re playing with tremendous courage, energy and enthusiasm. As a coach that’s all you can ask.”
