If the Selection Committee listened to CBS’ Jerry Palm, the Cats won’t be dancing in March. Despite Kentucky’s big win over Missouri, Palm lists Kentucky as one of the four first teams out of Tournament, along with Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Maryland.
Palm’s #1 seeds? Indiana, Duke, Michigan, and Gonzaga. The only SEC teams he projects to make the Tournament are Florida, a #3 seed, and Missouri, a #9 seed that he says is still on the bubble.
Barring a major meltdown on the road or in the SEC Tournament, I’m sorry, the Cats are in.
