Martin: Lawson, Bryant showed they are ‘special’

Sindarius Thornwell (2013-14) - SEC All-Freshman Team
34 games played (34 starts)
29.6 minutes per game
454 points scored (13.4 ppg)
139 rebounds (4.1 rpg)
39 percent FG / 37 percent 3FG / 74 percent FT

 A.J. Lawson (2018-19) – SEC All-Freshman Team
29 games played (28 starts) – missed three games due to ankle injury
30.5 minutes per game
388 points scored (13.4 ppg)
125 rebounds (4.3 rpg)
41 percent FG / 36 percent 3FG / 67 percent FT


“In my game improved most definitely in my three-point shooting, corner
shooting and finishing around the basket. I think I got better at that,”
Lawson said after the conclusion of the season. “We have a bright
future. We have a lot of talent coming back, new talent coming in as
freshmen and for the returning guys we’re going to have all the injured
guys healthy and we can be a great team.”



Duane Notice (2013-14)
34 games played (22 starts)
25.2 minutes per game
279 points scored (8.2 ppg)
99 rebounds (2.9 rpg)
38 percent FG / 36 percent 3FG / 67 percent FT


Keyshawn Bryant (2018-19)
32 games played (26 starts)
23.8 minutes per game
287 points (9.0 ppg)
122 rebounds (3.8 rpg)
45 percent FG / 21 percent 3FG / 57 percent FT


“Freshman year was a great experience. I learned a lot of things from
the older guys and the coaches. Overall I enjoyed my freshman year,”
Bryant said. “I had to grow up and take on a bigger role. I was ready
for it. The senior and coaches helped me prepare to take that role on.
Growing up more and maturing, that was the biggest thing and learning
how South Carolina plays basketball. We’re fast-tempo and a defensive
team. I need to work on my jump shot, most importantly. I’ll be working
on that a lot.”

Be very nice if Kotsar had a BIG year to go with the talent we will have on the floor this year.

I am excited for this coming season. I do not however, expect any of the big men on the team to be major contributors offensively. Kotsar may surprise and score upwards of 10 ppg, but I mostly just hope he can play solid team defense, and try to help with rebounding, and he will make Coach martin happy and not scream at him too much.


Same with incoming graduate transfer Henry - protect the rim and rebound, and any scoring he can provide will be icing on the cake. The meat of the offense will come from Lawson, Minaya, Bryant, Couisnard, Bolden, and Moss. A very athletic and fast-tempo'd team for 2019-20....
