Kentucky Goes Undefeated in Conference Play, SEC Tournament Seedings Set

Anthony Davis could not be stopped in Gainesville.

As expected, Kentucky outlasted a feisty Florida team 74-59 to become the first major conference team to finish the regular season undefeated since UK did it in 2003. The Wildcats' front line dominated with Anthony Davis getting a double-double with 22 and 12 (plus six blocks) and Terrence Jones scoring 19 points of his own.

The front court was Florida's highlight as well, with Patric Young getting 21 and nine and Erik Murphy getting 14 and eight, but the Gator guards had an awful day thanks in large part to Kentucky's great defense. Erving Walker shot 3-11 on his senior day, Bradley Beal was a miserable 1-10, and leading scorer Kenny Boynton was just 2-8.

With this game in the books, we can now nail down the seeding for the SEC Tournament. The schedule is as follows, with all times Eastern:

Thursday, March 8

Game 1, 12:00 - #8 LSU vs. #9 Arkansas

Game 2, 2:30 - #5 Alabama vs. #12 South Carolina

Game 3, 6:30 - #7 Ole Miss vs. #10 Auburn

Game 4, 9:00 - #6 Mississippi State vs. #11 Georgia

Friday, March 9

Game 5, 12:00 - #1 Kentucky vs. Game 1 winner

Game 6, 2:30 - #4 Florida vs. Game 2 winner

Game 7, 6:30 - #2 Tennessee vs. Game 3 winner

Game 8, 9:00 - #3 Vanderbilt vs. Game 4 winner

Saturday, March 10

Game 9, 12:00 - Game 5 winner vs. Game 6 winner

Game 10, 2:30 - Game 7 winner vs. Game 8 winner

Sunday, March 11

Game 11, 12:00 - Game 9 winner vs. Game 10 winner

The bracket is fairly friendly to the SEC's bubble teams. Alabama is the safest of its kind, and merely not losing to South Carolina could be all the Tide needs to do to punch its ticket once and for all. Mississippi State is riding the edge, but the Bulldogs are a combined 2-0 against the top two seeds in its side of the bracket (UT and Vandy). Tennessee is still a very long shot for at large contention, but the Vols are beginning to show up on the fringes of some bracketology stories. Their path could easily have Vanderbilt, which works in the favor of a team needing quality wins to sneak into the field of 68 as an at large.
