After a tough loss to Vanderbilt in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament on Friday night, the Kentucky Wildcats will now turn their attention to Selection Sunday.

In what has been a turbulent season for Kentucky, going into the NCAA Tournament will be another low point of the season.

The good news for the BBN, however, is the Cats have firmly cemented themselves a spot in this year's Big Dance. The big question will be what seed line the committee places Kentucky on.

After the loss to Vandy, DraftKings odds for Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament have also shifted slightly. According to the latest odds for DraftKings, the Cats currently sit at +4500 to bring home championship No. 9 and sit at +900 to make a run all the way to Houston for the Final Four.

This tournament is going to be a very interesting one for John Calipari and his team. With the roller coaster of a season, it wouldn't shock anyone if they make a deep run, but also wouldn't surprise anyone if they exit in the first weekend once again.

Either way, the most exciting weeks of college basketball are finally here.

Let the Madness begin!
