Saturday’s loss to Vanderbilt may have put Kentucky’s chances of getting the 1-seed in the SEC Tournament in jeopardy, but Joe Lunardi actually moved Kentucky up from a 4-seed to a 3-seed in the latest Bracketology.
Don’t get too excited, though. Lunardi has Kentucky in the Midwest Region, along with Kansas (1), Michigan State (2), Duke (4), Texas (5), Wichita State (7), and UConn (10). So, basically, the Region of Doom. Great.
Right now, Lunardi has five SEC teams in: Kentucky (3), Texas A&M (5), South Carolina (9), Vanderbilt (10), and Florida (11). The Gators are his last team in, making tomorrow night’s game in Gainesville even bigger for the Cats. Alabama’s still got a shot, listed as Lunardi’s fourth team out.
Meanwhile, CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm has Kentucky as a 5-seed in the Midwest Region, with Kansas as the 1-seed and Virginia as the 2-seed.
