South Carolina Gamecocks had dominated in SEC play, but they ran on a bulldozer on Tuesday night in the form of No. 1 Tennessee.
The result? A 92-70 victory for Vols at Gamecocks home country. Coach Frank Martin's team fought, especially in the second half.
After the match, Martin was not so fond of how his team performed and called them out of action. Here's what he said about the loss to No. 1 Tennessee in his postgame press conference:

At Chris Silva he does not get much help from his teammates:
Frank Martin says that Chris Silva was in a street fight all alone. #Gamecocks senior had 28 points, fought Vols interior trio Williams / Schofield / Alexander.
