SEC Basketball craziness is in full swing. Conference play in college basketball is truly a unique endeavor. Better teams routinely lose games that they should have been able to win in their sleep.
While most college basketball may be insufferable to watch, there is still drama and insanity on a weekly basis.
All over the country, teams are losing games they shouldn’t all over the place. Duke has lost games, so has Kansas, Florida, and many others.
But you don’t come here to laugh at Duke or Kansas. You want the weekly SEC Power Rankings, and I will deliver. So without further ado, let’s dive right into them.
I have a new number one for the second consecutive week. Florida gets the nod over Auburn due to more top-25 wins, and nearly beating Duke.
I don’t know he has done it despite an FBI investigation, but Bruce Pearl has Auburn war eagleing it on the basketball court. Auburn has won 13 consecutive games, and will compete for the SEC’s top spot.
Kentucky, oh Kentucky, how do you always lose to Tennessee? Kentucky’s loss and nail-biting win over a depleted Texas A&M land them at third.
Tennessee is still back. They have won their last two games, including the annual home drubbing of Kentucky that somehow still surprises me.
I have said it what feels like a billion times, “as long as Alabama has Collin Sexton, they can beat anyone at any time.”
I chastised Georgia for being Yante Maten and a bunch of dudes, which is still true. However, they have beaten Alabama and nearly defeated Kentucky.
LSU has come with a double worthy of Alex Box stadium. They defeated Texas A&M, and then throttled Arkansas.
8) Ole Miss
Terence Davis finally made a three, but he is still just 1-21 in conference play. They also still lack a lot in the post as well. If the Ole Miss guards are on, they can beat anyone, but they are also highly likely to lose to anyone.
9) Mississippi State
Mississippi State lost to Ole Miss and Florida after narrowly beating Arkansas, which now doesn’t look like much because Arkansas lost to LSU.
I don’t know what to do with Arkansas. They would have been higher on the list, but they lost to teams like Mississippi State and LSU.
11) Texas A&M
Due to a string of suspensions, and sheer bad luck, Texas A&M has started conference play 0-4. A&M may be the best team in the conference at full strength, but they have dug themselves a massive hole.
Yes, Missouri is keeping afloat after beating Georgia, but they are lower down on the totem pole because of losing Michael Porter Jr a few weeks ago. However, they could still slowly work their way up the list as the SEC cannibalizes itself.
They somehow beat Alabama, but Vandy is still Vandy, and we are not talking about Baseball here.
14) South Carolina
South Carolina made the final four this year, but they’ll be lucky to win a game in the SEC tournament.
