Where The SEC Stands After Friday's Games

Check out where all the SEC teams are currently located in the SEC standings. I also predict, after Friday's games, who will and who won't get into the NCAA Tournament based on several criteria.

12 Tennessee 5-17 22-21 17-12 5-9 2-10 89 77 NR

The number in front of the team's name is where the team stands as far as the SEC Tournament is concerned. If two teams are tied, I took into account how they did against each other or what their division record is.

I didn't take into account division champions, otherwise, Arkansas would be the number 2 seed since they are currently leading the Western Division.

Who will get an NCAA Regional bid:

I gave each team a rating of 1 through 12 based on how they did in each of the criteria above. The team with the best record received a 1, the team with the worst received a 12. I then added the totals for all the criteria and the team with the lowest number was rated as having the best chance of making the NCAA and the team with the highest number was rated the 12th best chance of making the NCAA.
