The Wildcats have done it again, winning their 48th regular season SEC championship. The Cats secured the outright title with a win over Texas A&M last night. They haven’t been perfect this year, but they’ve played some really good basketball recently and the SEC title is a good sign going into March Madness. They are (obviously) the favorites to win the SEC Tournament, and many still see them as a team that has a chance to go on a real tournament run.
