SEC Tourney Tie-Breakers And Seeding Scenarios

With six more contests to play, the seedings for next week’s SEC Tournament are almost set.  Almost.  Below are the scenarios for each team moving forward.  We’ll start in the West where things are much clearer.


West Division Tourney Seeding

Alabama (11-4) — The Tide has wrapped up the #1 seed and grabbed a first-round bye.

Mississippi State (8-7) — The Bulldogs are locked into the #2 seed with a first-round bye.

Arkansas (7-8) — If the Razorbacks beat Ole Miss tomorrow, they’ll take the #3 seed and Mississippi will land in the #4 slot.

Ole Miss (6-9) — If the Rebels defend their home court and beat Arkansas, they’ll take the #3 seed thanks to a 2-0 record against the Hogs.  Arkansas would fall to the #4 seed.

Auburn (3-12) — If the Tigers win at LSU, they will get the #5 seed and LSU would fall to the #6 seed.

LSU (3-12) — If Trent Johnson’s Tigers take care of Auburn at home tomorrow, they’ll take the #5 seed and Auburn will fall to the #6 slot.


East Division Tourney Seeding

Florida (12-3) — The Gators are locked into the #1 seed and hold a first-round bye.  If only the rest of the East were so simple.

With so many possibilities, we’ll look at each team’s best hopes…

Kentucky (9-6) — If the Wildcats win at Tennessee and Vanderbilt and Georgia lose, UK will take the #2 seed and the bye.  If the Wildcats finish tied with Vanderbilt, UK will gets the #2 seed via division records.  If Kentucky finishes tied with Georgia, UK will get the #2 seed.

Vanderbilt (9-6) — If the Commodores beat Florida in Nashville and Kentucky and Georgia lose, Vandy will take the #2 seed and the bye.  If the ‘Dores finish tied with Georgia, Vandy will gets the #2 seed via head-to-head record.  If Vandy finishes tied with Kentucky and Georgia, the ‘Dores will land the #2 seed (having the best round-robin record among those three teams).

Georgia (9-6) — If the Bulldogs win at Alabama and Kentucky and Vanderbilt lose, Georgia will take the #2 seed and the bye.

Tennessee (8-7) — If the Vols beat Kentucky on Sunday and Vanderbilt and Georgia lose, Tennessee will land the #2 seed and the bye.

South Carolina (5-10) — The Gamecocks are locked into the #6 seed.


In the East, here’s another way to look at things:


UK/VU win and UGA loses = UK #2, VU #3, UGA #4, UT #5

UK/UGA win and VU loses = UK #2, UGA #3, VU #4, UT #5

UK wins and VU/UGA lose = UK #2, VU #3, UGA #4, UT #5

VU/UK/UGA win = VU #2, UK #3, UGA #4, UT #5

VU/UGA win and UK loses = VU #2, UGA #3, UK #4, UT #5

VU wins and UK/UGA lose = VU #2, UK #3, UT #4, UGA #5

UGA wins and UK/VU lose = UGA #2, UT #3, UK #4, VU #5

UT wins and VU/UGA lose = UT #2, UK #3, VU #4, UGA #5
