South Carolina’s Frank Martin Talks State of the SEC and Previews Arkansas-South Carolina

South Carolina’s head coach says Arkansas is an NCAA Tournament team if the season ended today

By Bart Pohlman

South Carolina head coach Frank Martin, whose team hosts Arkansas on Wednesday, said if the season ended today, the Razorbacks should be an NCAA Tournament team.

“If this ends today, Arkansas is a sure NCAA team,” Martin said Tuesday on Sports Talk. “And if that doesn’t happen, it’s a travesty.”

The SEC is still struggling nationally in terms of reputation as a basketball league, and Martin said it’s time for that to change.

“It’s got to be fixed,” Martin said. “Too many real good players, too many real good coaches in good college towns for us to not be respected more.”

Martin also previewed Wednesday night’s game, and said it’s important that South Carolina doesn’t turn it over or take bad shots to prevent Arkansas from scoring in transition.
