Everything you need for the 2019 SEC Tournament.

NCAA Basketball: Georgia at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The regular season has come to an end.

Now, teams are getting ready for conference tournament time. Starting on Wednesday, the SEC Tournament will get underway in Nashville and run from March 13-17.

It was a three-team battle for the SEC crown, but the LSU Tigers came up with big wins over the Kentucky Wildcats and Tennessee Volunteers to win the league and get the 1 seed for the tournament. They clinched the league title Saturday with a win over Vanderbilt without the services of Javonte Smart, who is being held out due to the wiretap revelations that also led to Will Wade being suspended indefinitely.

The Wildcats did earn the 2 seed and won’t play until Friday night. Tennessee is the 3 seed and has to play about 30 minutes after the Cats’ game.

The battle for the last double “BYE” was as close as it gets, but in the end, South Carolina came away with the 4 seed.

The wild race for the SEC is over and now the teams will be looking for a guaranteed NCAA Tournament bid when they all make the trip to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for the SEC Tournament.

This is the best time of the year and it is going to be an excellent tournament and here is the schedule at which it will play out.
