If the SEC Tournament started today…

If the SEC Tournament started today, Kentucky would be the three seed, playing the winner of Alabama vs. Texas A&M/Vanderbilt Friday night at 9:30 p.m. ET.

With one month until the tournament begins, here is the bracket based on the current standings:

Here are the current standings after last night’s games:

TEAM CONFERENCE GAMES BACK OVERALL
Tennessee 11-0 23-1
LSU 10-1 1 20-4
Kentucky 9-2 2 20-4
Ole Miss 7-4 4 17-7
South Carolina 7-4 4 12-12
Alabama 6-5 5 15-9
Mississippi State 5-6 6 17-7
Auburn 5-6 6 16-8
Arkansas 5-6 6 14-10
Florida 5-6 6 13-11
Missouri 3-8 8 12-11
Texas A&M 3-8 8 10-13
Georgia 1-10 10 10-14
Vanderbilt 0-11 11 9-15

And the tiebreaker procedures, if you’re curious:

1. Two-Team Tie: The following procedure will be used in the following order until the tie is broken:

A) Won-lost results of head-to-head competition between the two teams.

B) Won-lost record of the two teams versus the No. 1 seed (and proceeding through the No. 14 seed, if necessary).

C) Coin flip by the Commissioner.

2. Three-Team Tie (or more): Won-lost record of the two teams versus the No. 1 seed (and proceeding through the No. 14 seed, if necessary).

A) Best winning percentage of games played among the tied teams (Example: Team A is 3-1, Team B is 2-2 and Team C is 1-3 – Team A would be seeded highest, Team B second highest and Team C lowest of the three).

B) Best winning percentage of the tied teams versus the No. 1 seed (and proceeding through the No. 14 seed, if necessary).

C) If two teams remain, coin flip by the Commissioner.

D) If three or more teams remain, draw by the Commissioner.

Obviously, with a month’s worth of games left, these will likely change. If you want Kentucky to avoid the late Friday night game, it’s time to cheer against LSU.

    I would love for the bracket to play out that way…..it would be a revenge tour in the first two rounds with Bama and LSU, then a rubber match with UT in the final! Cant ask for much better than that!

    I assume Honky Tonk Central is still open for those who don’t have tickets????

    Can we lose another and get a four seed? This is affecting my Friday night consumption in Nashville.

    Lot can change between now and then. Injuries, teams falling apart, teams evolving into greatness….
