COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina coach Frank Martin has a simple explanation for his team's sudden surge from the outside — the play of forward Chris Silva around the basket.

Coach Frank Martin said he mishandled Silva earlier this year.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — One of Frank Martin's best coaching moments this season for South Carolina came away from the games or the practice court. He counseled his senior leader Chris Silva to forget about the team's early problems and savor every minute he had left to play.
Silva has taken that advice and powered the Gamecocks' surprising run through the Southeastern Conference.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina coach Frank Martin kept saying as the awful losses piled up that his young team needed time to develop.
The Gamecocks are playing like that time has arrived.
South Carolina (8-7), which lost to mid-majors in Stony Brook and Wofford in November, is arguably the biggest early season surprise in the Southeastern Conference. The Gamecocks are tied atop the league standings at 3-0 with No. 3 Tennessee and No. 18 Mississippi.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A precision pass the length of the court. A grown-man seal against two defenders. A dunk that stunned the home crowd and sent the South Carolina bench into a frenzy.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — After a month of defeats, South Carolina was anxious for a win — no matter who it came against.

Coach: Frank Martin.
Who's gone: Guard Frank Booker, guard Wesley Myers, guard David Beatty (transfer).
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina's Frank Martin understood all along he might never get to coach Brian Bowen in a game and is just happy the 6-foot-7 forward whose name is part of the federal corruption case in college basketball had the chance to spend a few months with the Gamecocks.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Expect South Carolina coach Frank Martin to pay more attention to USC Upstate this fall.

The 5-foot-10 Felder, from Brooklyn, New York, was suspended last summer after his second arrest in less than a year. Felder was not enrolled last fall. He was allowed to return in the spring semester although he did not play.
