South Carolina Gamecocks

2012-13: 14-18 (4-14 SEC)
In-conference offense: 0.92 points per possession (12th)
In-conference defense: 1.04 points allowed per possession (12th)

In five seasons at Kansas State, Frank Martin recorded a 50-32 record in Big 12 play while making the NCAA tournament every season but one. In hindsight, that may not have been the best preparation for coping with one's first season at South Carolina.
