SEC Tournament bracket heading into pivotal game vs. LSU

The SEC Tournament begins three weeks from Wednesday. If it started today, Kentucky would be the No. 1 seed, playing the winner of Tennessee and Alabama on Friday at noon central.

Before we dig into the bracket and scenarios, here are the updated SEC standings and order based on tiebreakers. Shoutout to Alabama and Missouri for beating LSU and Auburn to leave the Cats alone at the top:

1. Kentucky (10-2)
2. Auburn (9-3)
3. LSU (9-3)
4. Florida (8-4)
5. South Carolina (8-4)
6. Mississippi State (7-5)
7. Texas A&M (6-6)
8. Tennessee (6-6)
9. Alabama (6-6)
10. Missouri (4-8)
11. Arkansas (4-8)
12. Ole Miss (4-8)
13. Georgia (2-10)
14. Vanderbilt (1-11)

Obviously, tomorrow night’s game in Baton Rouge is huge. If Kentucky wins, the Cats keep control over first place. If they lose, they move into a two-way tie with LSU, who would then own the tiebreaker. If Kentucky loses to LSU and Auburn beats Georgia on Wednesday, there would be a three-way tie at the top with the Cats moving to the three-seed line due to tiebreakers. Nobody wants the Friday night late game.

Still a lot of basketball to be played, but a win Tuesday would be big for not only the resume, but seeding purposes.

    Seeing it reinforces the tough road ahead: So w/ 6 games left we play #2, #3, #4 (twice) and #7 on the road and the “easy” game is #8 UT at home who’s not easy. Little tougher than Dayton and SDSU are staring at…

      SEC is bad. Look at the schedules Auburn and LSU have played. They have beaten nobody. Auburn does that every year yet the committee still reward them for some reason. You can make fun of San Diego State all you want but they would easily beat us. Yeah they have not beaten a Louisville or average Michigan State team like we have but they also have not lost to Evansville Utah South Carolina etc. etc. They did beat a decent Creighton team by 30 while we beat these nobody is like Ole Miss, vanity, Georgia by 7-8 points

      Do you realize San Diego State beat a decent Creighton team by 30 beat a good Iowa team by 10 and remember that Utah team that beat us, yeah well San Diego State beat them by almost 30

    I’d love for S. Carolina to be on our side of the bracket. I’d imagine our guys wouldn’t mind that either. Rematch would be sweet.

    LSU 82 UK 73. Agree with the above comment. SEC is down this year. Not enough chances for Quad 1 wins.
