COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Frank Martin hasn't gone through a season like his first one at South Carolina in a long time.
Martin, 46, went back to his time as a 20-something junior varsity coach in South Florida to recall such an awful, distressing stretch as the Gamecocks have endured during the Southeastern Conference season.
South Carolina (12-11) has won two of 10 conference games and is tied for last in the league with Mississippi State. The Gamecocks are on a four-game league losing streak with LSU (13-8, 4-6) headed to campus Thursday night.
Martin appears headed toward his first non-20 win season in his six years as a college head coach.
Martin says he understood when he left Kansas State a South Carolina turnaround would not be easy.
