Spurs & Feathers: Martin Continues to Show Passion to Grow Game In State

Prior to South Carolina’s easy win over rival Clemson on Friday, Dec. 19 at the Colonial Life Arena the Gamecocks unveiled new warmup shirts.
On the front of the slick new warmup shirts was the Palmetto State with a basket at the bottom of the state outline.
The warmup shirt was symbolic in that if you chose to believe that it was meant to say to Clemson that this was a Gamecock state so be it, but even more than that the warmups could also be interpreted as meaning the Palmetto State is indeed a state that loves college basketball.
This is something third-year South Carolina men’s basketball head coach Frank Martin talks about all the time.
