2018 SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament
The 2018 SEC Basketball Tournament is set to tip off on March 7, with the final scheduled for March 11. St. Louis’s Scottrade Center will host the tournament for the first time, with 14 teams vying for the SEC crown. Kentucky has been in the finals of the SEC Basketball Tournament in seven of the last eight years and has won three straight tourneys. After a couple weeks of conference play, it’s clear this will be a more competitive league than recent years, with teams like Auburn, Tennessee, Alabama and Texas A&M joining the Wildcats and Florida at the top of the SEC. Other top contenders for the 2018 SEC Tournament crown will be Georgia, South Carolina and Missouri.
Although it’s more well-known as a football juggernaut, the Southeastern Conference boasts one of the longest-running men’s basketball tournaments in the country with a history of excellence that few leagues can match. With double-digit National Championships to its credit, the SEC and its conference tournament has become a stepping stone that will launch a team into the NCAA Tournament.
