This wouldn't have been a bad loss if we had beaten MSST and TAMU, but it is what it is.

Good outing by Cudd minus the Freshman mistakes.

Kotsar was garbage tonight.

We cannot afford for next season to be anywhere close to this one.

I'm more optimistic. Next year, depending on who leaves and who comes in, we will be more experienced and more talented. We will have a PG, which we really don't have this season. We'll have to wait and see who is on the roster.

We weren’t that great last year Sindarius was the difference this is NOT the reality for Gamecock basketball we’ll be back in the tourney next year. Frank is s damn good coach the SC 2019 class is loaded with good recruits. One good player can make or break a team if Rah had played this year he wouldn’t have been Downey but he would’ve been better than these guys. Bowen is a damn good player we’ll be fine. And Chuck Martin is a hell of a recruiter.

We were damn good in our ACC days we have 2 or 3 guys who haven’t panned out and a ton of new players. If we struggle next year then it’ll be time to look in the mirror but I think this is just an unfortunate year.

We're missing key parts that we expected to have this year; we will be much, much better next season.

This year we've been snake bit. Felder gets suspended but more importantly Holden isn't the guy who we were hoping he would be due to a lingering knee injury that everyone thought would be fine months before the season. People forget we beat out Kansas, Va Tech, Seton Hall, and Baylor for Holden, had he been healthy he would be a 15+ ppg scorer. He and Felder would have been our primary ball handlers over Gravett and Myers for sure. Sometimes you just have one of those seasons where everything that can go wrong does go wrong. I expect this team to be much better next year.

Assuming his knee heals properly, will Holden be available next year under a medical redshirt?

Agree fully with your perspective. I am as disappointed as most SC fans, not so much with the losses, but with the inconsistency of play / effort. BUT, with all the injuries, graduations, early departure and players either leaving or being dismissed, I am NOT really surprised. Until we keep a good, solid nucleus of decent players from year to year, this may be our norm.

And, I think too, that the SAME people that are ridiculously impatient today have ALWAYS been that way. They, UNFORTUNATELY, now have a social media platform to express their unrealistic perspective for all to see and don't REALLY understand or care how things aren't always PERFECT.

Tennessee played well , we fought hard at their place and it was a good game ..
It seems we have a hard time getting up on plane kinda like a boat does before you can take off in the water .. Looks like to me we are more concerned with performing mechanics of the game than indoctrinating play with the hard work .. We moved pretty good last night and I'm certainly no bb coach, but my advice would be to get lower and play, put some more play into it, I think it would carry over into more relaxed shooting and team play .. There is no lack of effort but maybe a little lack of natural spirit that transforms to the next level .. Hard to explain but it would be nice to see a couple games where we had a player or two get in what we used to call ''in the zone''.. OTOH we have had some hard luck like others have mentioned this season that factors in .. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy ..

Good effort last night. I I think that we are close to being a team that will make the NCAA tournament every year. We would be there this year if not for the personnel losses that everyone here is aware of. Simply put, we do not have a point guard push the ball and score. I thought that Gravett played one of his better games of the year last night, but he still had problems when he was pressured.

I keep seeing positives with the development of our young players and getting added talent through recruitment. Next year should be the start of a nice run. But it could have started this year if we just had one more player - Rah, Holden, or Dozier.

Starting to think last year was a fluke. In that we actually had talent but Martin is starting to worry me with this shit recruiting going on.

Martin does not worry me at all, very glad we have him as our coach. We are a very young team this season and playing without two players we had counted on. As for Frank's recruiting he likes where we now stand with our recruiting. We should be much better next year.

Agreed, I'm not too worried about Frank either. The only problem I have with him is that his team's always seem to go downhill around this part of the season. Besides that I think he's doing fine, but just too many new pieces and lack of team chemistry has just made this year very inconsistent and disappointing. I also don't think recruiting has been bad so much as getting players to stay for at least 3 years is creating the dilemma of Frank constantly getting last minute talent to fill in.

If we came out of nowhere last year maybe you'd have a point. You forget that we improved each year leading up to last year under Frank which points to it not being a fluke, especially when you consider we were snubbed from the tournament the year prior. There's been some very bad luck this season, as I said in another post a healthy Holden is a 15+ ppg player and if we had that version of him on this team we'd be a number of wins better. Plus if you're worrying about talent we've got Bowen teamed up with Silva next year and Rah back on the team. If some of the young players like Minaya and Hasse can progress it'll be a strong year next year. If Holden looks like the guy that we thought we were getting prior to his knee injury then look out.
