South Carolina coach Frank Martin won’t be required to scowl at a pair of his former players Friday night — only cheer.

Martin is headed to Las Vegas to watch the Summer League debuts of Sindarius Thornwell and PJ Dozier. Thornwell, with the Clippers, and Dozier, with the Lakers, face off Friday night at 8:30 p.m. on ESPN.
Thornwell and Dozier were both key pieces in South Carolina’s 2017 Final Four run. Thornwell was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the No. 48 overall pick and then subsequently traded to the Clippers. Dozier signed on with the Lakers as an undrafted free agent.
The duo led the Gamecocks in points, assists and steals per game last season.
