With the news that Kentucky will get to play South Carolina to wrap up the season in a week, the reality of that added game makes getting to a double bye in the SEC Tournament far more plausible.  I’ve charted out the results over the next week on how the games would need to play out for Kentucky to be able to start it’s tourney run on Friday instead of Thursday.  And I’m not so sure which of these results is that implausible.

Saturday, February 27th
Florida at Kentucky: KENTUCKY
Tennessee at Auburn: AUBURN
LSU at Arkansas: ARKANSAS
Ole Miss at Vanderbilt: OLE MISS
Alabama at Mississippi State: ALABAMA

SEC Standings if These Results Occur:
3. LSU: 9-6
4. Florida: 8-6
5. Tennessee: 9-7
6. Ole Miss: 9-7
7. Kentucky: 8-7
8. Missouri: 7-7
9. Mississippi State: 7-9 (Eliminated)
—————————————————————————

Tuesday, March 2nd and Wednesday, March 3rd
Kentucky at Ole Miss: KENTUCKY
Vanderbilt at LSU: LSU
Missouri at Florida: MISSOURI

SEC Standings if These Results Occur:
3. LSU: 10-6
4. Tennessee: 9-7
5. Kentucky: 9-7
6. Florida: 8-7
7. Missouri: 8-7
8. Ole Miss: 9-8
————————————————————————-

Saturday, March 6th and Sunday, March 7th
South Carolina at Kentucky: KENTUCKY
Vanderbilt at Ole Miss: OLE MISS
LSU at Missouri: MISSOURI
Florida at Tennessee: TENNESSEE

FINAL SEC Standings if These Results Occur:
Double Bye. Kentucky: 10-7
Double Bye. LSU: 10-7
Tennessee: 10-7
Missouri: 9-7
Ole Miss: 10-8
Florida: 8-8

Kentucky and LSU would secure the double bye based on round-robin record vs. Tennessee:

  • Kentucky: 2-1
  • LSU: 1-1
  • Tennessee: 1-2

Why not?

    The real question for the Fla game is “will the kneeling Cats kneel again”???
