“Those of you that have followed us know that there is a lifetime of Gamecock basketball in New York City,” South Carolina men’s basketball head coach Frank Martin told a grouping of people prior to the Gamecocks huge non-conference win over No. 9 Iowa State at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Jan. 3, 2015.
Martin believes that continuing this tradition along with allowing some of his players the chance to play closer to home is really important to Gamecock men’s basketball.
Martin treats his student-athletes and those involved with his team just like family and the other reason scheduling games in the New York City area is so important to Martin is that it allows his own family the chance to be closer.
