Updated SEC Tournament Bracket after last night’s games

If the SEC Tournament started today, Kentucky would be the three-seed, playing the winner of Mississippi State vs. Texas A&M/Vanderbilt late Friday night. Tennessee and LSU would be the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds.

Here’s the bracket after last night’s games:

…and the current standings:

TEAM CONFERENCE GAMES BACK OVERALL
Tennessee 12-1 24-2
Kentucky 11-2 1 22-4
LSU 11-2 1 21-5
South Carolina 9-4 3 14-12
Ole Miss 8-5 4 18-8
Mississippi State 7-6 5 19-7
Auburn 7-6 5 18-8
Florida 7-6 5 15-11
Alabama 6-7 6 15-11
Arkansas 5-8 7 14-12
Texas A&M 4-9 8 11-14
Missouri 3-10 9 12-13
Georgia 1-12 11 10-16
Vanderbilt 0-13 12 9-17

As you can see, LSU and Kentucky have the same conference record right now, but because LSU beat the Cats last week, they own the tiebreaker. On Saturday, Tennessee plays the Tigers in Baton Rouge. If the Vols win — and Kentucky beats Auburn — LSU will fall to third place. If LSU wins (and Kentucky beats Auburn), they’ll move into first place and Kentucky moves into second and Tennessee falls to third because of the three-way tie-breaker procedures. Obviously, the game vs. the Vols in Knoxville will factor in as well.

So, basically, the SEC is a giant mess at the top and the basketball gods need to work with us so we can avoid the late Friday night game. No one wants that.

    LSU shook some things up, they’re capable of going deep in the tourney or getting bounced out in the first weekend.

      yeah that could be said for pretty much every team. Virginia can testify to that.

      So at this point are we hoping for a LSU loss to Tenn this weekend ?

      The same goes for any team that makes the tourney. That’s weak kyinsider. I’m your #1 fan, give us some good material.

    What happens if we tie w/ both TN and LSU, and each team owns the tie breaker against one other team?

      Ideally UT beats LSU and we beat UT in Knoxville. Otherwise it becomes very complicated and probably not decided until the last few games

      So if Tennessee beats LSU and then we beat Tennessee, and then each team ends at 15-3, then we’d get the tie-breaker because we would be 2-1 vs. UT/LSU and they’d be 1-2 and 1-1 respectively.

      If the same thing happened, but UT lost another game then obviously LSU would have the tie-breaker against us. It only matters what the tie-breaker is against other teams that are tied with you.

      Note that this would only be for seeding. The regular season championship is shared by any teams that are tied with the best record.

    Why is the Friday late game bad? I love weekend late games.

      Because they have to play the next day

      Because you play 10pm on Friday then 3pm on Saturday. As far as a fan perspective I’m good with any game on Friday, as long as we don’t get the noon game on Saturday. Drinking all night then, trying to catch a buzz again Saturday at noon is hard.

      Because Nashville style hangovers are much worse after a late game.

    Three way tie tiebreaker is winning % vs each other. LSU only plays us and Tennessee once each so they either finish .500 or 1.00 winner so if tenn beats LSU and we beat Tennessee we will be 667 LSU 500 tenn 334 against each other

    Uk be a one seed when it’s all said and done.

    The only path there that I would envy over our own would be USC’s.

    I bet Vols win in Baton Rouge. Heck, LSU will likely lose that last game of the season in Auburn. The regular season championship will come down to Cats in Knoxville on March 2nd.
