After seven straight wins to start the season, No. 23 South Carolina is hoping that 2016-17 turns into the special season it hoped it would have last year. Sunday will certainly be a special day for Gamecocks coach Frank Martin, whose team will host his alma mater Florida International.

The Gamecocks began 15-0 last season, rising to No. 19 in the country before going 11-7 during SEC play, getting knocked out of the conference tournament in the first round and getting snubbed by the NCAA Tournament committee. The 7-0 Gamecocks are back in the rankings again this week after posting wins over ranked foes Michigan and Syracuse. South Carolina didn’t suffer a letdown against Vermont on Thursday, as sophomore forward PJ Dozier scored a career-high 21 points to lead four players in double figures in a 68-50 triumph. FIU had its two-game win streak snapped in an 84-81 overtime loss at Elon on Wednesday despite a school-record 23 rebounds from graduate transfer Michael Kessens.

South Carolina won its last outing, a 68-50 result against Catamounts on December 01.
