Kentucky opens SEC Tournament play Friday

2018 SEC Basketball Tournament Bracket

By LARRY VAUGHT

Kentucky got the help it needed from Missouri Saturday night to enable the Wildcats to get a double bye in this week’s Southeastern Tournament.

Kentucky failed to land the No. 3 seed when it lost 80-67 at Florida. But a few hours later Missouri beat Arkansas to enable UK to get the No. 4 seed.

Kentucky will now open SEC Tournament play about 3:30 p.m. EST Friday in St. Louis at the Scottrade Center against either the No. 5 (Missouri), 12 (Georgia) or 13 (Vanderbilt) seed. UK split games with Missouri, beat Vanderbilt twice and beat Georgia in the one game the team’s played.

If Kentucky advances, it would play in the semifinal Saturday at 1 p.m. where SEC regular-season champion Auburn could be the opponent. Tennessee (No. 2 seed) and Florida are in the opposite bracket.

The tournament championship game is Sunday at 1 p.m. EST.

Kentucky finished the regular season 21-10 and 10-8 in the SEC.

  2. The word is out…make this team play defense for a full shot clock and they won’t do so for more than 3 or 4 trips down the floor at any given time during the game.
