If the SEC Tournament started today…


Last night’s SEC results gave the Cats’ hopes of getting a #2 seed in the SEC Tournament a much-needed boost. Kentucky now sits alone at second in the SEC standings, in front of Missouri, Alabama and Ole Miss. If the Cats win out or beat Georgia, the #2 seed is theirs.

If they lose to Georgia, there will be a four-way tie for second between Kentucky/Missouri/Alabama/Ole Miss and Kentucky would get the #2 seed because it has the best record against the other three (UK is 2-1, Missouri 2-2, Ole Miss 2-2, Alabama 1-2). The same goes for a three-way tie. If there’s a two-way tie for second between Kentucky and Ole Miss or Kentucky and Missouri, the Cats would win the tiebreaker as well. In fact, the only way the Cats don’t get the two-seed at this point is if they are tied at second with Alabama, who obviously has the upperhand over the Cats, but that seems unlikely right now.

Yet, as we’ve learned in the past few weeks, anything can happen in the SEC.

Here are tonight’s SEC games:

Mississippi State at South Carolina
Vanderbilt at Florida
LSU at Texas A&M
Tennessee at Auburn

I don’t know about you, but the early game on Friday night against Vandy/Arkansas sounds a heck of a lot better than the late game against what will probably end up being Tennessee.

    I liked yesterdays matchups better.

    I would rather play Alabama (rather than Missouri) in the second game.

    I think Missouri is much better than Alabama (on a neutral court) and matchup better against them. Sure, we lost to Alabama, but I think we beat them away from their place. Not so sure about Missouri.

    Ugh. I like the #2 Seed, but nothing else about a bracket that makes us beat Arkansas and either UT or Missouri to get to the Finals.

    We will know the actual bracket by this weekend so let’s quit with the prognosticating and useless posts.

    Let’s hope for a Missouri slip up in the next few days. I want no part of another game with that team if we can keep from it.

    Good try though. But not really though. The actual tiebreaker scenario…

    “If the Cats win out or beats Georgia, the #2 seed is theirs.” Wouldn’t they just need to beat Georgia then?

    Slow days at KSR. This post is better than nothing at all. If nothing else, we know what we need to do to get the #2 seed.

    Everyone thinks we get Arkansas. Why? Arkansas sucks away from home. I think we get Vandy for the third time and it would be harder winning against them 3 times in the same year. Look at last year

    ok so if uk beats georgia tmrw night and loses to fla saturday, we get the 2 seed regardless of how the other teams finish?

    11 I think last year was a bad example. We didn’t play very well in the SEC Tournament and I don’t believe we cared all that much about the Vandy game honestly. Cal downplays the tourny and we already had the overall 1 seed wrapped up.

    We had some of the worst games all year during that tourny. Florida, a team we beat by 20 at home and by 15 away, we only beat by 3. LSU….a team we beat by 24 in the regular season, we only won by 9. I just don’t think we were very interested in winning the SEC Tournament last season.

    This is a bit different. We very well need that Vandy game to get into the tournament. We still could lose, but I don’t think it will be because they caught us off guard like the previous season.

    I know this is playing the “what if” game but honestly…….if that shot didn’t fall and we beat IU, I think we go on to beat Vandy and have an undefeated season. We would have at least taken the game more seriously IMO

    I think that Missouri will lose at Tennessee. And Ole Miss will lose at LSU. If that happens, wouldn’t Alabama then be the 3 seed, and Kentucky will still be the 2 seed?

    Cuz Alabama should beat Georgia at home for Senior day

    I’m kind of worried about a possible re-match with Missouri in the second game, assuming we win the first. Best case scenario is we end up the 2 or 3 and Missouri is on the other side of the bracket at 4. I think we have a good chance making the championship game to play probably FL or Mizzou. And Arkansas doesn’t stand a chance against us on a neutral floor, which in Nashville it’s pretty much a home court advantage. Ready to see how UK bounces back tomorrow night after the disappointing performance at Arkansas.

    If Bama beats Georgia and UK loses to Florida (both teams at 12-6) wouldn’t Alabama have the #2 seed?

    11 – yeah this entire post is WRONG. we don’t lock up a #2 seed by only beating Georgia. If ‘Bama beats Georgia in Tuscaloosa, they will finish 12-6. If we split our remaining 2 games, we’ll finish 12-6 but ‘Bama wins the tiebreaker because they beat us.

    It doesn’t start today. Speculating is a waste of time.

    Ksr has been banging this drum for a while about us not wanting to play the late game on Friday night,why? That is the seed in the tourney that is most favorable for us. Sorry if that messes up some of your little party plans. Fact is, we want the late game on Friday if you people want this team in the NCAA tourney. We want no part of Missouri again IMHO. This post by mrs tt is erroneous in many ways.
