To preview Saturday’s key Kentucky-South Carolina basketball game at Columbia, I talked with David Cloninger of The State newspaper and my fellow Herald-Leader sports columnist Mark Story to preview the SEC showdown.
David gives a scouting report on the Gamecocks, including the reasons behind the team’s rise in head coach Frank Martin’s fourth season since coming to Columbia from Kansas State. He talks about Michael Carerra, Sindarius Thornwell and what makes the Gamecocks effective.
Mark talks about the upcoming schedule for both South Carolina and Kentucky, which makes this a pivotal game. He also talks about the play of Derrick Willis, the absence of Alex Poythress and what UK must do to come away with what would be an impressive win in Columbia.
