If the SEC Tournament started today, Kentucky would be the three seed, playing the winner of Alabama vs. Texas A&M/Vanderbilt Friday night at 9:30 p.m. ET.
With one month until the tournament begins, here is the bracket based on the current standings:
Here are the current standings after last night’s games:
And the tiebreaker procedures, if you’re curious:
1. Two-Team Tie: The following procedure will be used in the following order until the tie is broken:
A) Won-lost results of head-to-head competition between the two teams.
B) Won-lost record of the two teams versus the No. 1 seed (and proceeding through the No. 14 seed, if necessary).
C) Coin flip by the Commissioner.
2. Three-Team Tie (or more): Won-lost record of the two teams versus the No. 1 seed (and proceeding through the No. 14 seed, if necessary).
A) Best winning percentage of games played among the tied teams (Example: Team A is 3-1, Team B is 2-2 and Team C is 1-3 – Team A would be seeded highest, Team B second highest and Team C lowest of the three).
B) Best winning percentage of the tied teams versus the No. 1 seed (and proceeding through the No. 14 seed, if necessary).
C) If two teams remain, coin flip by the Commissioner.
D) If three or more teams remain, draw by the Commissioner.
Obviously, with a month’s worth of games left, these will likely change. If you want Kentucky to avoid the late Friday night game, it’s time to cheer against LSU.
