SEC Basketball Power Poll
The seedings are set for the SEC Tournament which tips off Thursday in New Orleans.
Here is my end of the regular season SEC Basketball Power Poll submission
Wildcats go undefeated in the league and look to have the top seed in the NCAA Tournament wrapped up.
The NCAA Selection Committee doesn't use how a team finishes down the stretch any more but I am in putting the Vols at number two.
Disappointing season for Vandy finishing only 10-6 in the conference but still a solid team that could win a game or two in the NCAA tourney.
The Gators never seemed to get on the same page for a long stretch this season, but the talent is there for a tournament run.
Tide overcome suspensions to make the field of 68 I think unless they lose their first round SEC Tournament game vs South Carolina.
6. Miss State
This is a crucial SEC Tournament for Rick Stansbury to make the NCAA Tournament again and to get some heat off his seat.
7. Ole Miss
Andy Kennedy did a little better than I thought this season.
Trent Johnson took a step forward this year with the Tigers. The progress is noted.
I have said it before...I can't help but wonder what Mike Anderson is thinking with Mizzou coming into the league next season.
I have the Bulldogs over Auburn here because the Tigers are only in the 10th seed for the tourney because they played the easier SEC West schedule.
Tony Barbee is finding out that Auburn is no Memphis when it comes to basketball.
12. South Carolina
I am going to miss Darin Horn.
