.@USATODAYSports' NCAA tournament bracketology: Which No. 2 seeds could steal No. 1 seed from Gonzaga? https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaab/2019/02/18/march-madness-ncaa-tournament-bracketology-college-basketball-bubble/2903151002/ … via @BracketWAG


Quote
Gonzaga currently leads the rankings in the NET, the NCAA's metric that replaced RPI this season. The selection committee made it clear it's impressed with the 'Zags' résumé, making them a No. 1 seed in the top-16 seed early reveal at the beginning of the month.

But Gonzaga's biggest issue is that the West Coast Conference doesn't provide opportunity to improve a profile nearly as well as the SEC...

The first of those No. 2s, Kentucky, is coming off an impressive home victory over No. 1 seed Tennessee. The win helped offset an loss last week to a strong LSU squad and  also gave the Wildcats' eight Quadrant 1 (top-30 home, top-75 road) victories. Kentucky (21-4, 10-2 SEC; No. 6 NET) won't get another shot at LSU until the SEC tournament, but it gets two road contests that could add to its Q1 total, including a rematch on the road vs. Tennessee on March 2.

Two years after disastrous season, #LSU basketball team is in hunt for SEC title https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/sports/lsu/article_9891cc5e-3300-11e9-98fd-cf37205c30c1.html … via @theadvocatebr @LSUBasketball

ATHENS, Ga. — When the dust settled Saturday night, after the highly-anticipated contest between Tennessee and Kentucky, the race for the Southeastern Conference men’s basketball regular-season title looked different.

While No. 1 Tennessee and fifth-ranked Kentucky collided in a rare SEC matchup of two top-five ball clubs, LSU's coaches and players were much more than interested spectators as they walked out of Stegeman Coliseum and prepared for a chartered flight home.

LSU had just held on for an 83-79 win over a pesky Georgia team, which suffered its 10th consecutive league loss, and the Tigers had a rooting interest in the game being played 402 miles away in Lexington...

When Kentucky finished steamrolling Tennessee, those two — and LSU — were separated by just one game at the top of the SEC standings.

Tennessee, which will fall out of the top spot in the polls when they’re released Monday, and No. 19 LSU, which could make a sizable leap based primarily on its huge upset at Kentucky, are tied for first at 11-1.

Kentucky, which shook off its two-point setback to LSU on Tuesday night in impressive fashion against Tennessee, is right there at 10-2.

So, with two-thirds of the conference’s 18-game schedule in the books, it’s game on for those three.

While Tennessee and Kentucky were expected to be sitting there this late in the season, LSU has crashed the party

Is their ascension on borrowed time?

SEC basketball, top to bottom, has never been better than right now, but that doesn’t make losses down the stretch any less painful.

Everyone has six games left before the SEC basketball tournament, and the level of play right now around the league is mashing and twisting the nerves and the confidence of its coaches into pretzels.

To hear Alabama’s Avery Johnson tell it, he’s the worst coach in the SEC right now.

He’s not, of course. In fact, the coaching talent is so high right now in this “football conference” that Tom Crean, who coached at Marquette and Indiana before heading south to Athens, Ga., is staring blankly at a 1-11 record in the league. SEC basketball, top to bottom, has never been better than right now, but that doesn’t make losses down the stretch any less painful.

Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State and Florida are all 6-6 in SEC play with — you guessed it — six games to go. That kind of numerology is bad stuff, the mark of a beastly league. Each one of those teams are good enough to make the NCAA Tournament, but I’m not sure the NCAA Tournament selection committee is going to take nine teams from the SEC.

Who gets left out?

3 teams, 3 weeks: Kentucky, LSU, Tennessee in SEC race to the finish


Quote
With six games to go, the battle for the Southeastern Conference’s regular-season championship and the top seed in the league tournament next month has narrowed to a three-team race with barely any breathing room among the trio.

Tennessee and LSU are tied atop the standings with identical 11-1 records. Thanks to its 86-69 drilling of the No. 1-ranked Vols at a packed to the rafters Rupp Arena on Saturday, Kentucky is just one game behind, sitting 10-2 in SEC play.

Who has the edge over the last three weeks before we motor into March Madness? In a 14-team league with an unbalanced schedule, the competitive advantage might go to the lucky team facing the most favorable to-do list.

That could be LSU, benefactors of last Tuesday’s disputed tip-in win over Kentucky in Rupp Arena. After returning to planet Earth, Will Wade’s club wobbled at Georgia on Saturday before pulling out an 83-79 victory. Key: The Tigers did not commit a single turnover in the second half to beat the Bulldogs, now 1-11 in league play.

LSU faces a made-to-order trap game Wednesday night against Florida in Baton Rouge. Then comes the super Saturday showdown likely to snap that first-place tie. That’s when Tennessee comes to the Pete Maravich Assembly Center for the Vols’ only matchup with the Tigers.

After that, LSU has Texas A&M at home, Alabama and Florida on the road before Vanderbilt comes to Cajun Country for the regular-season finale. Combined opponents’ record in league play for LSU’s final six games: 32-40.

Bracketology Bubble Watch: Alabama, Clemson face critical matchups for their resumes

Tide and Tigers need to get back in the win column if they hope to join the NCAA Tournament field in March

Jerry Palm:


Quote
1. ALABAMA
at Texas A&M, 9 p.m. -- SEC Network

Alabama has reached a critical point of the season. After two uncompetitive losses to Mississippi State and Florida, the latter at home, the Crimson Tide sit at 15-10. They have two of their next three on the road, all against teams that are not headed to the NCAA Tournament. Alabama already lost to the Aggies at home. The Tide's tournament prospects become perilous if they lose to them again.

Bracketology Bubble Watch: Auburn battles Arkansas with neither team in a position to take a loss

Tracking the bubble teams in action on Wednesday


Quote
Alabama rolled over again Tuesday, this time at Texas A&M in a 65-56 loss. That makes three straight losses and a season that is fading fast for a team on the NCAA Tournament bubble. Winless, and desperate, Vanderbilt is next. The Crimson Tide needs to start playing like they're desperate.

FLORIDA at LSU, 7 p.m. -- ESPN2

Florida is trying to make a late run into the bracket and there is no better way to spark that run than beating the hottest team in the league in LSU. Florida is just 14-11 and has some quality wins, but they are 3-10 against Quadrant 1 opposition. The Gators will have more chances after Wednesday.

ARKANSAS at Auburn, 8:30 p.m. -- SEC Network

At 14-11, Arkansas desperately needs wins, quality and otherwise, and this is a tough assignment.

AUBURN vs. Arkansas, 8:30 p.m. -- SEC Network

Auburn needs this one too because a loss would be its worst of the season. Right now, the best thing you can say about Auburn is that they have only lost to Quadrant 1 teams.

SEC Edition
Quote
It’s possible that both Tennessee and Kentucky could end up as No. 1 seeds. Next in line is LSU.  Then it’s …. much more complicated.  Mississippi State should be okay, but they are 5-6 within the league, so it’s far from conclusive.
Locks: Tennessee, Kentucky, LSU

Should Be In:

Work to Do: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Mississippi State, Ole Miss

Alabama – That home win over Kentucky is a gift that keeps on giving.  And certainly helps ease a couple of iffy losses to Northeastern and Georgia State.  Nothing has been easy in this year’s SEC, but a .500 finish probably does the trick.
Auburn – Here’s the odd thing about the Tigers.  They have a Top 25 NET rating and yet are 1-6 vs. Quad 1 teams.  They might sneak in, but their margin for error is slipping.
Florida – The Gators needs wins.  They are barely above even in the record department.  Can they win four more than they lose down the stretch?  It’s something they haven’t been able to do thus far.
Mississippi State – All is good except for that sub-.500 league record.  While it’s not a contributing factor, per se, a losing streak wouldn’t be advised. That’s why we’re putting a hold on their Should Be In status.
Ole Miss – Another good week could be enough for the Rebels, who have wins over Auburn, Mississippi State (road), and Baylor.  Not long ago, the Rebels lost four straight.  Let’s just be sure another losing streak isn’t in the works.

Quote
While everyone [else] was watching Duke-North Carolina Wednesday night, the bubble was especially active. Florida picked up a huge win as part of its late season charge toward the bracket, while Arkansas fell apart like Zion Williamson's shoe in a loss to Auburn in a "double-bubble game."

After losing to Auburn 79-56, Arkansas seems to have packed it in for the season. At 14-12, 3-10 against the top two quadrants, there just isn't much to talk about for now. Auburn, on the other hand, picked up another blowout win at home. The Tigers need to do something away from home eventually.

Florida picked up its best win of the season, and third road win against Quadrant 1 opponents, in a 82-77 overtime victory at LSU. The Gators still have work to do. They are currently 15-11 with three pretty winnable games coming up before the rematch with the Tigers in Gainesville. Florida needs to pad that win column.

Kentucky moving up the bracket.


Quote
With Tennessee's 82-80 overtime loss at LSU and Kentucky's 80-53 domination of Auburn, we will have our first change in the No. 1 seeds in the bracket since Feb. 3.

Tennessee will drop down to a No. 2 seed and be replaced on the top line by the Wildcats. Kentucky will be the fourth overall No. 1 seed, behind Duke, Virginia and Gonzaga.

At 23-4, Kentucky has one more loss than the 24-3 Volunteers, but makes up for that with a high number of quality wins and a head-to-head win over Tennessee. Head-to-head record is not as important in college basketball as it is in seeding for the College Football Playoff, but it is also not nothing.

SEC men’s basketball is now a three-way tie for first place between Tennessee, LSU and Kentucky

Quote
All three teams are 12-2. LSU has beaten both UK (73-71) and Tennessee (82-80). Kentucky beat Tennessee (86-69). And UK and UT play again this Saturday, March 2, in Knoxville.

Freshman guard Javonte Smart scored 29 points to lead LSU over the Vols on Saturday. Smart hit two free throws with 0.6 second left in overtime after the Vols’ Grant Williams was called for a foul when he ran into Smart trying to get a rebound. Smart was subbing for LSU’s star guard Tremont Waters, who missed the game with an undisclosed illness.

Of course, Kentucky rolled over Auburn 80-53 on Saturday. The Cats beat Auburn at its own game, making 11 three-pointers. In my column, I wrote that Kentucky is showing it has the right stuff for March.

▪ Arkansas arrives at Rupp Arena on Tuesday night lugging a five-game losing streak. The Razorbacks lost 87-80 at Texas A&M on Saturday. Savion Flagg scored 22 points and Wendell Mitchell added 20 for the Aggies. Arkansas is now 14-13 overall and 5-9 in the SEC. Tuesday’s game with UK is a 9 p.m. start.

▪ The other big story in the SEC on Saturday happened in Oxford...

Bracketology Bubble Watch: Minnesota, NC State look to avoid disappointing losses on Sunday

Tracking the bubble teams in action over the weekend


Quote
Saturday's games
Auburn 53, Kentucky 80: Auburn is a home court hero, so a no-show performance at Kentucky is not unexpected. That does not make it a good thing. The Tigers are doing well in the metrics because of what they do on their home floor. They have won 12 games by an average of 25.5 points per game, and the only team to lose at Auburn by single digits is Murray State. The Tigers are not perfect at home, though. They have losses to UK and Mississippi State, but the metrics that rely on margin of victory are disguising the flaws in Auburn's profile.

Florida 64, Missouri 60: The Gators seemed to have a bit of a letdown after the huge win over LSU, but they came away with the win in the end. The next two are against the bottom two teams in the league. Those are must wins also.

Alabama 68, Vanderbilt 61: The Crimson Tide beat the worst team left on their schedule to keep tournament hopes alive. Now, they have to travel to South Carolina, which has been much improved in conference play. LSU and Auburn are still on the schedule as well, but at home.
