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

With the SEC Tournament slated a month from this week, three teams find themselves tied atop the leaderboard. LSU, Kentucky and Auburn are all 9-2 in conference play but only one can be the tournament’s top seed. This is both good and bad for Kentucky, as they virtually could control their own fate by winning out, as they’d then beat both Auburn and LSU in doing so. The bad is that aside from the Wildcats, LSU has a decently cupcake schedule and Auburn’s isn’t exactly the toughest.

Though Kentucky has played well as of late, slow starts and a lack of depth in the rotation raises many concerns against a hot-shooting team that could walk in the building on any given night. A few wrong calls, missed layups and irresponsible fouls and Kentucky could lose to just about anyone. While they’ve also proven they can beat anyone in the country, there are still three weeks of games left to be played.

What’s your prediction on how Auburn, LSU and Kentucky finish out conference play? Drop your answer in the comment section below.
