BTI’s Rants and Ramblings: Kentucky’s Potential Opponents With No Success at SEC Tournament

If you’re looking for a more obscure positive about Kentucky’s SEC Tournament draw, or potential draw, take a look at this.  If the seeds were to hold Kentucky would be facing a Missouri-Auburn-Tennessee path to the title.  Since UK came back to the tournament after probation in 1992, there are 6 teams that have never beaten the Cats and two of those are Auburn and Tennessee.  UK has never faced Missouri since the Tigers joined the league.

Alabama: 8-0
Ole Miss: 6-0
Auburn: 5-0
Tennessee: 3-0
Texas A&M: 1-0
Arkansas: 9-1 (Losses: 2000)
LSU: 5-1 (Losses: 2009)
Georgia: 5-1 (Losses: 2008)
Florida: 7-2 (Losses: 2005, 2013)
Mississippi State: 3-2 (Losses: 1996, 2007)
South Carolina: 3-2 (Losses: 2002, 2006)
Vanderbilt: 2-2 (Losses: 2012, 2013)
(never played Missouri in SEC Tournament)

This is not an especially important stat except to say that for the fanbases of these teams above, there are some serious scars over the last 25 years from beatings from the Cats.  If UK does get Auburn on Saturday, those fans will not know what it is like to beat UK in an SEC Tournament in many decades.  Sometimes that kind of stuff can bleed over into a team and give the other team just the slightest additional edge.

    With the addition of Michael Porter, Jr. we will have our hands full just getting to the Sat game……..

    How long had it been since UT swept us…
    First 4 game losing streak..
    First time we lost to Mizzo

    The way this team has played/not played all season.. Stats and history mean nothing.

    This season “should” also be the first time with 0 first round picks. None of them have even come close to showing they are ready for the SEC much less the NBA. But we all know how it will play out…

      It is actually the first time we have been swept by both UT and UF since 1967. Bitter pill to swallow. Hopefully our boys will grow a set and get some redemption in the SEC Tourney. Getting back to sharing the ball and moving on offense would be a good start.
