SOUTH CAROLINA ENTERS POSTSEASON SHORT-HANDED …

Five members of the University of South Carolina men’s basketball team have been suspended “indefinitely” by head coach Frank Martin for an undisclosed “conduct issue.”

The suspensions of TeMarcus Blanton, Eric Cobb, Jamall Gregory, Chris Silva and Marcus Stroman were announced less than forty-eight hours after the Gamecocks barely missed out on what would have been the program’s first NCAA tournament bid in twelve years.

The announcement was made just two hours prior to South Carolina’s tipoff against High Point in the opening round of the 2016 National Invitation Tournament (NIT) – in which the Gamecocks have drawn the top seed in their region.

Of the suspended players, Silva – a 6-foot-9, 205-pound freshman forward from Libreville, Gabon – is the biggest loss.  He played in all 32 games for Martin’s squad – averaging 5.4 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest in just over thirteen minutes of playing time.  Stroman, a 6-foot-2, 183-pound sophomore guard, appeared in 29 games – averaging 2.3 points and two rebounds per game in just shy of fifteen minutes of action.  Cobb, a 6-foot-10, 275-pound freshman forward, played just over six minutes per game – appearing in 24 contests.

Gregory, a 6-foot-4, 180-pound freshman guard from Washington, D.C., averaged just 6.7 minutes per game in 20 contests – while Blanton, a 6-foot-5, 209-pound freshman guard from Locust Grove, Georgia, averaged just four minutes per game in eight contests.

South Carolina tips off against High Point at 7:00 p.m. EDT.  That game will be televised nationally by ESPNU.

Glad they waited until they knew they wouldn’t have to worry about the suspensions affecting any major games. Real fishy.

Rumors it was something they did last night. You’re not exactly talking about rocket surgeons here.

Yeah, the “thing” they did was your skanky, meth addicted mom. That bitch will fuck anything or anyone for a hit of meth! ……In other news, the real reason the 5 players will miss the game is that their dicks are swollen and dripping copious amounts of pus and blood after fucking squishy’s ‘ mom. They will be hospitalized for 10 days of oral and intravenous antibiotics.

Hell boy, be proud of your clap ridden, old whore of a mother. Ask her to contact Maury so she can test the 200-500 niggers who could be your daddy.

Squishy123 March 16, 2016 at 10:52 am

I doubt there are even 200 niggers in the state I grew up in. They say it’s too cold and tend to get tossed in jail just for stopping on their way through the state.

Keep flapping them big boot kissin lips, nigga boy!

They all ran a train on Squishy’s mom and Marin said the bitch was too skanky so he suspended them for embarrassing the team!

Nope, they were just being niggers. Nothing as elaborate as what you’re saying or surprising.

Given the fact that your mother is a whoring skank, chances are you have some “nigger” in you, hence your fear and loathing, soul brother!

Unlikely, where I grew up there wasn’t a nigger within 100 miles of my hometown.

They were in and out of that single wide, shithole trailer you and your skank ass mom called home. Be proud that you are 1/2 darkie! Does your hair soak up water? Do ya like fried chicken and watermelon? Bet ya got a set of the big ole nigger lips!

This is why most people have quit this site. Everything degrades into junior high trash talk within 10 posts.

you should join them Jackie

Squishy123 March 16, 2016 at 10:51 am

Who has left? Did they go over to candy-ass Brad Warthen’s blog where all he does is clip articles from other newspapers, suck up to James Smith, and bitch about all the Republicans in Lexington County?

he is just a troll March 16, 2016 at 1:04 pm

Well have you ever read a post from Squishy? He has the education of a junior high student in Special Ed.

Squishy123 March 17, 2016 at 11:23 am

Yeah, but I was at the top of my class. Have you read any of your posts? They all involve incest and blacks having sex with my mother. Your posts don’t even qualify for junior high student level.

Squishy123 March 16, 2016 at 10:50 am

Just because you grew up in a single wide doesn’t mean everyone did. The only single-wide we had was a 5th wheel camper that got used 3-4 times a year. Yeah my hair soaks up water, I like fried chicken and watermelon, my lips are normal Scandavanvian whitey lips.

At least the BBall coach has some balls and standards. Unlike the quitter Slurrier.
