If the SEC Tournament started today, Kentucky would be the three seed with a Friday night game against the winner of Arkansas versus Texas A&M/South Carolina. That’s the dreaded 10:00 p.m. game with a short turnaround before Saturday’s 3:30 p.m. semifinal.
In order for Kentucky to move up to the two seed, Kentucky would need to win out and hope for an Alabama loss in one of its two remaining games: at Ole Miss, vs. Georgia. Alabama holds the tiebreaker over Kentucky after winning the only head-to-head meeting between the two teams.
Kentucky only needs to win one of its final two games to secure at least a three seed, as the Cats hold the tiebreaker over Missouri and Ole Miss, the current four and five seeds.
Both Tennessee and Arkansas hold the tiebreaker over Kentucky, but need to make up two games to tie UK in the final standings.
