Final Four Preview

The season has come down to it's final four, and to the shock of many, the SEC has two teams left standing. This tournament did not go the way most picked, but Kentucky may just be the shock of the tournament. Florida was the number one overall seed and most prognosticators had picked them to get the the round of four. Kentucky was given an eight seed and had to beat undefeated Wichita State and Louisville, before defeating Big Ten Power and number 2 seed Michigan to get to the semi-final round.

The Bubble is King in the SEC

At this time in the season we see two teams firmly in the NCAA tournament. Kentucky figures to be in anywhere from a 3-6 seed. We then see Florida qualifying as a 1 seed. After that it's up in the air for the rest of the SEC. You've got to figure that Georgia, Ole Miss, Missouri, and Tennessee are the teams that are battling right now. Just below them we have LSU and Arkansas.

Teams Begin to Show True Selves

The SEC is beginning to shake out. We can now see clear lines being drawn. The two teams at the top will stay that way and make the NCAA tournament and probably make deep runs. Florida just seems to be way ahead of the curve in this league. Kentucky can beat any team in the NCAA on any given night. They are young, do make mistakes, but have potential to be a Championship contender.

The Missouri Tigers are Back from the Dead

The Missouri Tigers have a 2 game winning streak and now have the second best over-all record in the SEC and are fourth according to overall standings with a 4-3 SEC record and 16-4 over all record. This is a team that we all thought would be tournament bound in non-conference play, but a sub par performance early on in SEC play did not look like it would end soon.

The SEC Getting Ready for Another Week of Big Match Ups

The SEC men's basketball standings have three clear cut tournament teams and then everybody else. With Florida still being undefeated in SEC play, Kentucky getting a big win over the weekend, and Ole Miss emerging as the third team that seems to be a step ahead of most of the rest of the SEC, we see these teams being clear cut NCAA teams. Florida and Kentucky should both be high seeds and Ole Miss is winning at a stored pace, we see them getting a possible 4-6 seed in the tournament.

Who Has Chances for the NCAA Tournament Out of the SEC Men's Field

Who Has Chances for the NCAA Tournament Out of the SEC Men's Field

First of all there are the two obvious teams. Florida will be in the tournament and will probably be a three or four seed. You might be looking at a higher seed if the conference was tougher. With no big wins in conference, unless they defeat Kentucky, they will be no higher than a 2, but 3 is more likely. If Kentucky were to defeat Florida along with the rest of their conference schedule, they be able to pull off a 3 seed, but I'm thinking more of a 4 or a 5 seed. Who's left, you may ask?
