SEC Basketball Also Looking At 18 Game Conference Schedule

Last week I noted how the ACC was looking at an 18 game conference schedule at their annual meetings.

This week in Destin the SEC is looking at similar action.

One ACC coach in particular seem against the idea of two extra conference games which would limit their non-conference scheduling though this coach carries a lot of weight in the league.

But considering the SEC's lackluster ability to pile up NCAA Tournament bids like other major conferences, especially the West Division, I have a hard time seeing a majority of the coaches against.

And speaking of the divisions that may be gone too. The power has been with the East ever since the 12 team league was split in too, but that gap has grown in recent seasons. The East currently holds a 58 to 43 NCAA Tournament advantage over the West.

Elimination of the divisions would also prevent the confusing manner in which the SEC Tournament is seeded, something UGA coach Mark Fox is in favor of as well as others.
