Despite tough loss, Frank Martin sees bright future for Kentucky this season

After starting the game on an 8-0 run and leading by as many as 14 in the second half, Kentucky numerous opportunities to not only solidify the road victory over South Carolina, but run away in blowout fashion.

Instead, the Gamecocks clawed back, converting on offensive rebound opportunities and turnovers by the Wildcats, setting up for a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer by redshirt freshman Jermaine Couisnard.

While the current crop of Wildcats have every reason to put their heads down and let the head-scratching loss linger after their disappointing effort in Columbia, South Carolina head coach Frank Martin offered words of wisdom for the team during his postgame press conference.
