Gamecocks Still Upset Over Preseason Poll

When the SEC preseason media poll was released in October, the USC men's basketball learned it had been predicted to finish eighth in the conference.

The last SEC team playing was picked to finish in the lower half of the league.

When the SEC preseason media poll was released in October, USC was eighth.

USC senior Justin McKie from Irmo says that the team actually was livid over that and the fact that seniors Duane Notice and Sindarius Thornwell were left off the media's preseason All-SEC teams. The coaches poll did have Thornwell on its preseason All-SEC squad.

However, Carolina has taken that slight in October and used it during the season whenever they needed a reminder of how they are perceived outside of the Palmetto State.
