Monday Quickies: SEC Bracket Edition

New, 14 comments
NCAA Basketball: Kentucky at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

While the Kentucky Wildcats clinched the top-overall seed for the Southeastern Conference Tournament well before conference play ended on Saturday, the final seedings weren’t quite decided until this past weekend. On the assumption Kentucky plays their way into the SEC Championship game, all three of their games will be televised at 1 PM EDT on ESPN. They’re set to play the winner of Alabama and Tennessee on Friday.

If Kentucky advances past Friday, the Wildcats could face either Georgia, Ole Miss, Florida or Mississippi State. While upset teams rarely make their mark all the way through Sunday, there could very well be some shakeups early on during the tournament. Kentucky is only three wins away from re-claiming their place as SEC Champions, but based on a wild and entertaining season of college basketball, anything can happen.

The tournament will be played at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN from March 11th to 15th. A detailed bracket with finalized seeding is pictured below. What’s your prediction?
