When it comes to college sports, perhaps no conference garners more competitive respect than that of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). Though SEC basketball is best represented by the NCAA powerhouse Kentucky Wildcats, the tournament bracket is packed with competition from top to bottom. After overloading the competitive atmosphere with the additions of Texas A&M and Missouri, the SEC Tournament’s 14-team bracket is without doubt one of the countries toughest.
The competitive addition to the SEC bracket sparked the berth of an additional round of play leaving the first round to be decided by the 4 low seeds. As an added bonus, the larger 13 game bracket doubled the number of teams in the running for the bye round advantage to include 8 with the top 4 seeds gaining the double round bye. The SEC bracket is compiled of 5 rounds that are separated into 6 double-header sessions (1-6) and the SEC Championship Game (session 7).
