Kentucky Clinches Four-Seed, Double-Bye at SEC Tournament

Thanks, Missouri.

The Tigers held off the Arkansas Razorbacks with a 77-67 win to give Kentucky the four-seed and a double-bye in the SEC Tournament.  Kentucky’s first game will tip-off at approximately 3:00 ET on March 9th in St. Louis.  John Calipari’s Wildcats have never played an SEC Tournament game on a Thursday.

The SEC Tournament bracket will be finalized later tonight when the winner of Ole Miss-Vanderbilt clinches the 13-seed and becomes UK’s potential quarterfinal opponent.

      I think it’s Missouri, not Arkansas. I believe they held the tie breaker

      FlySoup, you are correct. The 5 seed is Missouri. My bad.

    Hey 502, enjoy your trip to the NIT. Maybe Louisville will finally be someone’s super bowl. Lol. At least your Cards have a shot at a title now. It’ll only get worst next year. Hahahahahahaha

      Yeah Code, at least LittleBro was first at something……First time in history a program has been stripped of their title. Funny how stripped fits in that sentence too….LOL

      He thinks Louisville is an elite program. Their ignorance is sad. Kentucky players don’t even consider them a rival and I really is the Super Bowl to Louisville’s sorry non pros. And we still own them.

      The super bowl for us is the real super bowl. The tournament. And we own Louisville there too.

      The SEC has 8 teams currently ranked ahead of UL. So much for their other lame argument about the SEC!

    I don’t know if UK clinched the four seed as much as they slid into the spot. Hopefully UK is about to win four in a row again.

    Plus, we dodge Florida and UT until the finals. Am I right about that?

      Cats side of the bracket has (13) Vandy, (12) Georgia, (9) Bama, (8) A&M, (5) Missouri, (1) Auburn.

      We get the winner of Mizzou vs Vandy/Ga

    10 losses before sec tournament. Struggling to maybe get a 5 seed in tournament. 0 chance at title. 6 years and counting without a title. This is UK basketball. Cal needs to go. Overrated. 8 million for lackluster coaching and seasons.

      First CodeRed and now BBNDude/Slater. It’s YOU who needs to go back to your LittleBro program and stop pretending to be a Kentucky fan.



    • 4everUKblue
      9:17 pm March 3, 2018 Permalink

      Slater Do you even know what Cal’s record is here at UK? Do yourself a favor and look at his overall resume and then get lost for good, before you embarrass yourself even more.



    • BigBlueNationDude
      9:48 pm March 3, 2018 Permalink

      1 title. Who cares what the record is. Ask tom brady and 2007. Ask other teams who had good regular seasons with no titles.



    • 4everUKblue
      10:01 pm March 3, 2018 Permalink

      True fans care, stop pretending to be a UK fan and go back to your dumpster fire of a program. We have 8 titles in case you didn’t know. I would bet dUKe would trade last season’s results with us. Who is Tom Brady in relation to UK basketball? You’re a clown of the worst kind.



    • BigBlueNationDude
      10:04 pm March 3, 2018 Permalink

      Titles from the 1940 and 50’s.

      Slater you speak for 1% of the BBN at best. You’re a loser, go back to UL.

      Are they titles? Do they count? Answer one question clown boy. Have you ever taken a shot with a basketball that didn’t involve a joystick?

      Make up with your BF Slater, maybe that would be a ray of light in your sad pathetic life.

      HOW spoiled are you?? I was 19 when I saw Cats win it all for first time (1978)

    Wel will be fine . Neutral court games are so much different. Not expecting a final four but would be nice to win the SEC tourney and play second week of tourney. That would be a good season

      1-2 in nuetrals this year including a horrendous loss vs ucla

      BBNDude/Slater Do you know anything positive about UK basketball or do you spend you lonely hours searching for the negatives.

      When you accept mediocrity, you become mediocre! . Maybe a negative statement to some, but true. We expect more here at UK, it all falls on Cal, period.

      8 NATIONAL TITLES with Unc and Duke knocking on the door.



    • 4everUKblue
      1:36 pm March 4, 2018 Permalink

      If you can look at Cal’s body of work while at UK and call it mediocre you have a problem.

    Meanwhile the refs are giving UNCheat the WVA no free throws for you treatment. dUKe 17 free throws to 4 for UNCheat. UNC has not shot a free throw in the second half.

    Good night all you beautiful people. Go CATs. SEC tourney title on the way I hope

    On a brighter note IU has not won a title since 87 as I remind my Hoosier buddies here in southeast Indiana on a daily basis



    • Booby Petrino
      10:12 pm March 3, 2018 Permalink

      And Louisville hasn’t one won since 1986. But I’m sure Slater thinks pitino is a great coach.

      What does Slater know about anything…especially basketball?



    • BigBlueNationDude
      10:34 pm March 3, 2018 Permalink

      I still know 1thing. UK isnt going to win any more titles with Cal. These 10+ loss seasons are a joke. And another thing. Next year theyll suck too bc 2 or 3 will go when they shouldnt



    • 4everUKblue
      10:38 pm March 3, 2018 Permalink

      You just showed your ignorance even more than I thought possible. Again you just topped your own ignorance again. Sky’s the limit for your ignorance Slater.

      BigBlueNationDude, there are THREE HUNDRED FIFTY other D1 teams to select from. Pick one, and get the hell out of here.
