So Martin wasn't surprised when South Carolina guard Brenton Williams rebounded from a late tongue-lashing from the coach to score 12 of his 14 points in overtime, leading the Gamecocks to an 82-75 victory over Milwaukee on Sunday in Martin's debut.

Sorry for the delayed field report. Sunday's basketball game threw off my usual Sunday schedule, but I'll happily trade a tardy field report for a hard court win. If you are in Columbia and are available Friday night, go see Frank Martin's Gamecocks. You'll be glad you did. Anyway, on to the field report.
For the first time in 5 weeks the...
