The Rebels won their first SEC title and beat the only other teams going to the Tournament along the way.
This week: 3/22 5-seed Wisconsin (Kansas City)
2. Florida (26-7, 14-4)
First time the gators haven’t been at the top after losing to the Rebels in a second half flurry, but they’re a 3-seed so not all is bad.
This week: 3/22 14-seed Northwestern State (Austin)
3. Missouri (23-10, 11-7)
The Tigers beat Texas A&M then lost a heart-breaker to Ole Miss and are the only other SEC team in the field.
This week: 3/21 8-seed Colorado State (Lexington, Kent.)

Bound for the NIT, Alabama was one of the last four out of the tournament.
This week: 3/19 vs. 8-seed Northeastern (NIT)

No Nerlens Noel, no tournament. Like Alabama, one of the last four out.

9. LSU (19-12, 9-9)
Johnny O’Bryant needs some help eventually.
10. Georgia (15-17, 9-9)
Prayers go out to the Georgia basketball fans in regards to another year of Caldwell-Pope in Athens.
11. Texas A&M (18-15, 7-11)
The departure of Elston Turner, Jr. will sting a little bit.
12. South Carolina (14-18, 4-14)
At least they beat Ole Miss that one time.
13. Mississippi State (10-22, 4-14)
The nightmare is over, and they beat Auburn to climb out of the cellar.
Season (finally) Over
14. Auburn (9-23, 3-15)
Lost 10 in-a-row and 15- of their last 16 games. Mississippi State is ahead of them.
