With Sunday being the last day of the regular season in the SEC, the bracket for the upcoming SEC tournament is officially set.
After their demolishing of 14th seeded Auburn, Kentucky has locked themselves into the seven seed in Nashville. This path allows the Wildcats to avoid South Carolina until championship Sunday. Since they are not a top four seed, they will receive the one round bye instead of the two round bye.
Kentucky will play their first game this Thursday against 10th seeded Mississippi State, who the Wildcats beat by a score of 81-74 earlier this month. A win would place Kyra Elzy’s squad against two-seed LSU, who beat Kentucky in Baton Rouge back on January 30th.
