Five South Carolina players suspended indefinitely


South Carolina basketball coach Frank Martin announced today that five players have been indefinitely suspended from the program. This is pretty bad timing as the Gamecocks are set to participate in the National Invitation Tournament.

TeMarcus Blanton, Eric Cobb, Jamall Gregory, Chris Silva and Marcus Stroma have all been suspended from play due to an apparent “conduct issue.” No further information regarding the cause of the suspension of the five players is known at this time.

This means that South Carolina is left with only 10 active players to open the NIT.

This is also a bit of deja-vu for the Gamecocks as head coach Frank Martin was suspended in March of 2014 for using harsh language against his players during a 72-46 loss to Florida that game.

South Carolina was left out of the 2016 NCAA tournament. They are seeded No. 1 in the NIT after a 24-8 season. The Gamecocks are set to play the High Point University Panthers tonight.
