Easy Guide To Determine Kentucky’s SEC Tournament Seed


The fate of the SEC Tournament’s top four seeds will ultimately be determined by two games tomorrow afternoon, played by the conference’s top four teams. Three of those four teams can still earn the top overall seed, with Texas A&M controlling its own destiny in its 2 pm home game against third place Vanderbilt.

As for Kentucky, which will host LSU at 2:30 pm, the Wildcats can end up with any of the top four spots on the SEC Tournament bracket, via four scenarios.

I have broken it all down for you in an easy-to-read flowchart, simply because I love you and don’t want you to think too hard on a Saturday afternoon when the two games have concluded.

    no matter what happens, we will likely face LSU in the semifinals. That’s the only team in the conference that scares me. i was hoping there was a scenario that would put them on the other side of the bracket….

  2. UK Big Board Update

    So you’re telling me, that if UK wins Saturday, but A&M loses, Louisville won’t play in the postseason because of hookers?

    Got it.

    Alright, so from someone who knows, which is the most likely scenario? I’m trying to buy single game tickets for Friday’s game.

    This is helpful, thanks!

    Now if only we could get Alabama, Florida and South Carolina to stop losing games. As weird as it sounds those three are tanking UK’s resume. 1 week ago, UK had 7 top 50 RPI wins, now we have 3 thanks to those guys dropping so many games to the lower echelon of the conference.. Right now UK’s computer profile looks terrible in terms of NCAA tourney seeding. RPI, while a terrible metric, is still used heavily by the tourney selection committee in determining a teams resume when it comes to top 25, top 50 RPI wins… So uhhh, weird as it sounds, please stop losing to anyone but UK please SEC bubble teams.

    i’m assuming you are right about this because i only have a 16th grade education, but i have never seen a situation where a team drops a spot (3rd to 4th) when another team (a&m) loses. that’s amazing.

    Is not the game at 2:00 PM ET (not 2:30)?

      And don’t Vandy and A&M play at noon?
