The 2016 SEC Tournament is now fully set.

The Kentucky Wildcats own the SEC, and they clinched their share of the school's 47th regular-season basketball crown after beating LSU.

However, the Cats will not be the No. 1 overall seed in next week's SEC Tournament. That distinction goes to Texas A&M, who beat Vanderbilt earlier on Saturday to clinch the top speed, even though they and UK both sport 13-5 records in league play.

Both the Aggies and Wildcats looked very impressive in their respective demolitions of opponents. A&M cruised to a 76-67 win over Vanderbilt in a game the Aggies led by as many as 19 before finishing off the Dores for the school's first SEC regular-season crown.

UK also won in dominating fashion as they crushed LSU 94-77 to tie A&M atop the final SEC standings. The Cats are the No. 2 seed entering the conference tournament as their next game comes in the quarterfinals. That games takes place in Nashville on Friday, March 11 at 7 p.m. EST (6 p.m. CT in Nashville).

The Cats will face the winner of No. 7 Ole Miss vs. No. 10 Alabama, which takes place Thursday night. As for how to watch the games, the SEC Network will cover the first nine games until ESPN takes over for semifinal action and the title game on Sunday.
