Now that there is a six-way tie for third place in the Southeastern Conference standings, Kentucky’s projected seed in the SEC tournament is looking much better than the last time we did this, prior to this week’s slate of games.
With Tuesday’s win at Arkansas and all the other happenings around the league, Kentucky jumped from the No. 7 seed to the No. 4 seed in the new update. The new position would give UK the double-bye to the Friday quarterfinals with Mississippi State as the first opponent. Auburn, the tournament’s top seed, would likely be waiting on Saturday in the semis.
Kentucky’s odds to win have also increased, up to 13.66 percent from 9.76 percent.
