Kentucky and the SEC Tournament in the Modern Era

We all have heard the stat that Kentucky has more SEC Tournament titles than all of the other league members combined.  But, for many of those years Kentucky only had to win 1 or 2 games to take home the championship.  But, since the league expanded to 12 teams and the tournament expanded to its current format, Kentucky has still had its fair share of success.  And by fair share, I mean 10 total titles, compared to 8 for the rest of the league.  Just how good have the Cats been in those 18 tournaments:

TOTAL TITLES
Kentucky: 10
Florida: 3
Mississippi State: 3
Georgia: 1
Arkansas: 1

UK RECORD VS SEC MEMBERS SINCE 1993
Auburn: 4-0
Mississippi: 3-0
Tennessee: 3-0
Alabama: 3-0
Vanderbilt: 1-0
Arkansas: 7-1
Florida: 4-1
LSU: 2-1
Georgia: 2-1
South Carolina: 4-2
Mississippi State: 3-2

UK RECORD VS SEC MEMBERS IN SEC TITLE GAMES
Arkansas: 2-0
LSU: 1-0
Mississippi: 1-0
Georgia: 1-0
South Carolina: 1-0
Mississippi State: 2-1
Florida: 2-1

Kentucky is 16-3 in the modern era of the SEC Tournament against teams on its side of the bracket this year.  Have a feeling we might make it 18-3 this season.

    Wouldn’t the “modern era” begin when the SEC Tourney was reinstated in 1979? Just asking…

    The losses to UGA and LSU in the SECT in the Drunk’s two years were horrendous.

    i agree those two losses were horrendous, but the drunk was playing with mostly tubby’s recruits. tubby gets such a free pass for driving our program straight into the dirt.
    he’s doing a fine job in minnesota though.
