COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Things have not been easy for South Carolina coach Frank Martin.
And while the second-year coach sees improvement from his young Gamecocks, the losses keep mounting for Martin, who hadn't missed the postseason until arriving at South Carolina.
The Gamecocks (7-12) stands 0-6 in Southeastern Conference play for the third time ever. South Carolina has never lost its first seven league games, something the Gamecocks look to avoid when meeting Texas A&M (12-7, 3-3) on Wednesday night.
Martin's longest losing streak in five seasons at Kansas State was four games. This is his second-straight season dropping six in a row.
One reason this time: 12 of 14 players are underclassmen and he's minus both point guards he counted on when the season started.
