SEC Bracket: If the SEC Tournament started today

If the SEC Tournament started today, Kentucky would be the No. 7 seed with a first-round bye.

The Cats’ first opponent would be LSU in the quarterfinals, and that game would have the 6 pm (CT) time slot on Thursday.

Tennessee, the tournament’s No. 2 seed, would be waiting on Friday if Kentucky advanced; while Florida would likely be the semifinal opponent should things go that far. Kentucky is 0-3 against those two teams this season.

This will of course change as the season progresses, and it could change drastically considering several of the teams are tied in the standings with head-to-head games left to play. But if the tournament were to tip today, the bracket would be as you see above.

For what it’s worth, Kentucky currently has a 9.76 percent chance to win the tournament, according to’s projections. The site believes Kentucky will end up with the No. 6 seed after the finishing this season with a 9-9 conference record.

    We need to climb up to that #4 spot and snag a 2-round bye. With 3/4 games being against those teams that are directly ahead of us, our fate is in our own hands. I think it’s very doable.

    They maybe beat LSU? They cant beat TENN. There only hope is to atleast get 1. Matt Jones and his “they are gonna win sec tourney” is comical. Just like he thinks the starting lineup doesnt matter. You guys feed into his bs so bad

      “They maybe beat LSU?”

      Is that a question? It isn’t phrased like a question, but it is punctuated like one.

      How about while the team works on getting better at basketball, you work on your composition!
