Kentucky is on top of the SEC once more, winning the SEC tournament for the 30th time. They beat Arkansas, 68-51, led by De’Aaron Fox who had 18 points and was awarded the tournament’s MVP with 66 total points this week in Nashville in three games.
Kentucky: seeking 30th @SEC Tournament championship
— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) March 12, 2017
Kentucky has had an interesting season coming in very hyped up but sputtering in late January losing three of four. They’ve now won 11 in-a-row and are hot at the right time heading into the tournament.
Our resident bracketologist, Chris Dobbertean, has UK as a No. 2 seed heading into the dance. There’s not a ton they can do to get a No. 1 seed in what is a very contentious battle already, but winning the SEC’s regular season and conference title is of course nothing to scoff at.
Arkansas is also likely in the field of 68 as a No. 7 seed, per Dobbertean.
