Live updates: Vols-Gamecocks hoops

South Carolina basketball coach Frank Martin

Tennessee is back on its home floor after a tough loss earlier this week, and govols247 is in the house to bring you the latest.

Third-year coach Cuonzo Martin and his Vols (14-8, 5-4 SEC) are set to host SEC cellar dweller South Carolina (8-14, 1-8) at 3:05 p.m. EST in Thompson-Boling Arena in a game that will be broadcast by ESPNU.

Coach Frank Martin’s rebuilding Gamecocks have been more competitive than their record indicates in league play, but they’ve been unable to finish close game and as a result have suffered several tough defeats — including a four-point loss at Ole Miss and a five-point home loss to Auburn in the past week.

Updates and analysis from tonight’s game, as well as quotes and notes from postgame interviews with players and coaches from both teams, will be included in this thread.
