Separate threads for separate games can be made if people want to, but I'll go ahead and begin a thread for the annual showcase. The weather is supposed to be good in Nashville.

Before the day started, the locks were UK as the 1 seed, Arkansas as the 2nd, and Missouri as 14th. Things are starting to take shape with Bama knocking off TAMU and LSU clipping Arkansas.

Predictions for the champ and the tournament MVP?

I was also hoping UK was not on UGA's side. But, at least we likely won't have to play UGA and LSU, since it's looking like you guys will tussle before you play UK.

Some people say the byes help, and I think they do by the semis or final. However, the team that played the day before should be in a better rhythm also.

I ran into SkyAntione at this event several years ago.........so I won't be attending this year.

It is pretty remarkable that Vandy wrapped up the 7th seed considering their 1-7 start. Youngest team in the league finishing in the upper half of the league. Good times.

Could Vandy play their way into some last-minute bubble consideration if they beat UT, Arkansas, and UGA/Ole Miss?

Vandy is always a contender in this tournament when it's in Nashville.

Scratch that question on Vandy. I didn't realize their RPI was still sub-100. They'd have to win the tournament to get in the dance.

Nice turnaround to their season nonetheless.

That bottom half of the bracket loos tough, GD88. Who do you think comes out of it?

IMO, Vandy is too reliant on shooters to have their legs to get to the final, especially if they play Arkansas and have to run quite a bit back and forth.

Arkansas and Georgia look like the favorites on that side, though conference tournaments are notoriously unpredictable. I'd love another crack at the Hogs.

I think we could possibly move up to the 7 line by beating Arkansas and advancing to the finals. As we know, a loss to UK wouldn't hurt us.

There's still a lot to be determined vis a vis seeding. We can still play ourselves out of that dreaded 8/9 spot.

kentubbybasketball
03-08-2015, 11:25 AM
At least if you are an 8/9 seed you won't be in UK path since we are in the same conference per the selection process rules.

It would be tough to lose to UK four times in the same season.

Djshockley3

I want the 8/9 seed. I would love just a chance to knock off a UVA or Duke. You have to play these teams at some point.

kentubbybasketball
03-08-2015, 12:54 PM
Sure, but one thing to consider is that as an 8 or 9 seed, that game against the 8 or 9 seed is tough too. Then two days later you gotta come out and play the 1 seed. That's a tough row to plow through, which is part of what made UK's run to the national championship game last year so improbable. I would much rather be a 10 seed honestly.

I've said it since the beginning of the year. My title game prediction is UK vs Duke. I think Frank Kaminsky might have something to say about it, but those two teams have the singular two best players in the country going forward in Towns and Okafor. (I will say that Trey Lyles is playing at an elite level right now; he's stretching defenses with his ability to hit that 17 foot shot). They have the two best coaches also. That's a tough combo to beat. Whoever beats UK and/or Duke in the NCAAT will have earned it. I know that's what the NCAA wants from a ratings perspective.

kentubbybasketball
03-08-2015, 12:56 PM
It would be tough to lose to UK four times in the same season.

Yeah. I can't think of many times it's happened. Duke beat Maryland four times in 2001, and Maryland was a final four team. Kentucky did it to Alabama in 1986, and we were 3-0 vs LSU that same year until they clipped us in the Elite 8. It's too hard to beat somebody four times, and somebody like Mark Fox especially since he's always trying something different.

kentubbybasketball
03-08-2015, 01:03 PM
Kentucky's first game will be either against Florida or Alabama. Clearly we'd rather face Alabama. For starters, Bama is the walking wounded. It seems like they are losing a guy to a season-ending injury by the week (sometimes two in one week). Florida on the otherhand, has the athleticism to stick with UK. Florida did a great job doubling us from behind on the baseline, so that when our posts spun baseline they met an extra defender, plus they clogged the lane.

The giant elephant in the room is last year Bama's AD put out a vote of confidence in Grant. This year hasn't been great, which is sad because Levi Randolph has put in All-conference season without much consistent help. I wonder if Grant loses to his boss and UF if he gets the axe. That's something to keep track of next week for sure.

A win over anyone from seed 11-14 wouldn't help UGA move toward a better seed.

The double bye is much better for UGA because it should remove any possibility of UGA taking a bad loss. Plus, it give Kenny an extra day of rest.

We'll take you in the SECT. Make it 3 for 3, Arkansas against South Carolina. Know that! :raz:

Just playing with you. :)

In my honest opinion, South Carolina is due to upset an opponent (or two) in the SECT by virtue of the fact they've played some goods teams hard. Plus they have nothing to lose. There is more pressure on the teams trying to make the dance like Ole Miss, Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Texas A&M, etc. So we'll see, but I like S.C.'s odds.

We could use anyone that can score on a consistent basis.

kentubbybasketball
03-12-2015, 03:45 PM
True, I think the Silva kid is more important than Dozier, who is obviously rated higher. I think you guys have SEC level guards already. The bigs are maybe not quite as good as they need to be though.

kentubbybasketball
03-12-2015, 04:17 PM
Florida it is for Kentucky in the quarterfinals. This is our greatest rival in the SEC for sure. Hopefully, they'll be a bit tired tomorrow since they played today. I expect us to be a bit more rusty than them since we haven't played. I'd imagine this will be one of the first times in UK history that we have played the same team back to back.

TAMU might have just had their bubble burst. Luckily the last ten or twelve games isn't a selection requirement anymore for their sake. Hopefully, next year with their talent infusion they'll be much better.

I don't get how they took us to 2OT (without Jones at that), and then finished like this.

Yep, they are NIT for sure. RPI went from 57 to 67.

This is the perfect example why the double bye is much preferred to getting a chance to pad your resume with wins against poor teams on thursday. The downside is huge.

As a UGA fan, we got the perfect draw from the perspective of limited downside. UGA fans should be rooting for Ole Miss tonight, imho.

Losing to Ole Miss would not hurt UGA's resume much - in fact it would secure their only Top 50 wins. UGA beating Ole Miss tomorrow would mean that UGA finishes the year with zero Top 50 wins. Obviously I'm not saying it's better for UGA to lose, but a loss to Ole Miss wouldn't do much harm, especially considering other results today around the bubble (Illinois, A&M, ODU).

03-12-2015, 06:05 PM
Perhaps the double bye is much preferred for a bubble team. Coaches like Bob Knight in the past and John Calipari would rather not play at all. There is no advantage whatsoever for Kentucky to even play in this tournament other than to try to get to the magical number of 40 games this season. Winning the tournament would put us at 34 wins and would keep confidence high, but lose, and everybody would act like the sky is falling. Two of our last 3 national title teams didn't even win the SECT. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a waste of time as some have, but there's little to no benefit, unless a loss allows you to circle the wagons, but that's still no guarantee.

I agree it's usually a waste of time for teams like Kentucky, but 40-0 would be iconic, like the '72 Dolphins going 17-0 or the '96 Bulls winning 72 games. I don't think Kentucky's just playing for a national championship at this point -- they're playing for their place in history.

kentubbybasketball
03-12-2015, 06:15 PM
Indeed. As you say 40-0 would be more iconic than 37-0 (which would be the total without the SECT). The risk for injury is huge also. You would hope that more of the bit players would get a chance to play also since there will be three games played in 3 days. Luckily for us we are in the top half of the draw, meaning there is more rest time than on the bottom. The fact that we have good depth will hopefully help us.

Mechanical Engineering. I've heard a couple people say Jones wants to finish that degree before starting a potential NBA career. No idea if it's accurate, but potentially he could finish that degree in 3 years, which means he would have 1 to go.

Timing is right as I don't think Jones should turn pro this year, especially given what kind of team Vandy could have next year.

Awesome win, damn work made me miss almost all of this tournament for our guys, hope a miracle happens tomorrow but if it does it will definitely be a miracle. No way these guys will have enough gas left in the tank to beat Kentucky, hopefully it will be more competitive then the last meeting though, and this run has definitely made the first season a success and is the best run in the SEC tournament that AU has had in a longgg time.

I think anytime you have guards you have a chance. It'll be interesting tomorrow. I think our guys will be motivated for Coach Barbee.

Run was fun, but it is ending tomorrow. We have maybe a .00001 chance to beat Kentucky and that is being kind. Only chance is jack up a whole bunch of threes and shoot about 50%. Granger is out now out, one of our guys that actually has height. He deserves to be out. Mickey would of destroyed him IMO if they had actually fought.

Line up will be:
C: Bowers
PF: Canada or Thompson
SG: Harrell
SG: Mason or Lang
PG: K.C.

That is not going to work vs Kentucky lulz. Bowers is probably 6'5 or 6'6 and that will be our tallest player unless Thompson or Reed is on the floor. Reed is 7'2 but has not seen playing time for a couple weeks now and just is not very good right now.

About Harrell. You lead the conference in 3 points made, 3 point percentage and PPG you should be in. He is one of the top 9 players (that is how many they put in). If they just name 5 I would of understood him being left out.

I think Mann got hurt originally when he drove and got caught under the basket by 2 SC defenders. It happened about 5-7 minutes before he came off the floor.

He came up limping then. I also think Gaines aggravated his sore foot, but didn't look too serious. I sure would rather have had the semis at night; more rest time would have been helpful.

Tyler Ulis! Two straight assists to WCS! What a crossover by Ulos. Then he got an offensive reb and dish to WCS.

kentubbybasketball

Good first half from everybody besides our centers. KAT never got on track. Auburn is bringing a hoard of defenders, as many as 3 or 4 when the ball gets inside. We need to pass out of it, reverse the bal, repost, re-enter the ball inside.

Good to see WCS hitting his J today. Glad he's showing off his full game, as he said he needed to get right before this tourney.

Andrew is so important. Anybody that says he's not our top poin tguard isn't watching the game. Cal played him with two fouls for about 6 minutes and that's not something we ever do. He's just controlled teh game. His twin is shooting lights out in this tourney. He's the best tournament shooter we've had in a generation at UK.

Ulis has definitely controlled the game on defense today. He's not letting Auburn's guard turn teh corner on screens, and even without screens people can't get past him easily. Love having him here. Just another dimension, and unlike other people, I'm glad he's the biggest supporter of Andrew on this team. (He supports Andrew more than Aaron does from what Cal says).

Trey Lyles is getting posted quite a bit, and he's been our back to the basket post offense today. He's converted two and ones today.

Lee just couldn't get it going with the two quick fouls. Glad Cal put him back in at the end to say "we've got confidence in you."

Booker seems somewhat hesitant on his shots, but he'll be fine. Love the size he gives us. He (and Aaron) allow us to play smaller by putting one of them at the 3 if need be to matchup better.

Win out KT. I'm glad Arkansas won UK will get to run run and run tomorrow...
I agree. 7 wins from 40-0. U gotta win them all at this point if you can. I'm hoping any number of our guys take offense to the coach's and media's notion that we won't have the best player on the court. Motivation. You know Cal is all over that one.

Cool, joe. It doesn't matter what I think or you think. I'm a fan. Obviously the players want to win them all.

Go ahead and start your thread for the game in a different thread. I'm done talking to you. Like the regular season, it worked well with a thread for Arkansas fans and A separate one for UK fans. I'll leave it at good luck and maybe see you around here next season if I don't leave or something else happens. (MK and Hogfanforever, I would love to keep you guys in this thread. It'll be fun hoops talk).

I don't give a crap what you do. You're not the basketball guru you think. The only think you got right was how good UK was and he'll we've been talking undefeated for 3 seasons now. You thought florida. WRONG, you agreed with XPS about SC, WRONG, you said Georgia would be #2, WRONG, you implied our team had no class, WRONG. Be done with me, no skin off my nose. Good luck tomorrow and the NCAA. Despite you I'll only wish for UK to lose tomorrow or should we match up in the NCAA.

I'll be happy either way bro. You're a great person and I'd be happy for you if yall did. You should come over to the good side and be a UK fan tho. Lol

Who you got tomorrow? Doubt UK just runs roughshod like last time.

Early line is 13 That is low considering the avg. margin of victory UK has.

I thought that was high myself- the hogs will pull out all of the guns tomorrow Joe. If it wasn't enough UK is undeafted and playing for the SEC championship, the embarrassment the Hogs had to endure at Rupp on national TV will be motivation enough to go balls out. I hope UK goes balls out to.

KT, I expect Kentucky to take the title. The Wildcats are just playing too good a bball right now to be beat. Arkansas could win, but IMO it would take catching Kentucky off-guard and probably some luck. Anything is possible, though. Knowing Coach Cal, he'll have his kids angry and ready to play because they want the #1 overall seed.

We are already the overall #1. The NCAA released that today!

Congrats! UK deserves the overall #1. Cal and the kids still want that SECT trophy! Anything else and I'd believe they would be largely disappointed.

Yeah Cal wants it because he wants an undefeated season. He wrote his second most recent book that I am currently reading from 6 years ago.

Guys can't be so indecisive when they get the ball inside. Just go make your move. Don't give them a second to recover on D.

Refs are showing they're only calling fouls one way. Ark is putting two hands on our guy's back... no call.

Both teams are making shots. Whoever goes cold will lose this one.

Refs can't be awarding flops like earlier tho.

We are doing well. Everybody has scored save Lyles. Pretty good to be up 12 with our poor defensive rebounding and battling all these whistles.

WCS has come to play. He's had the highlight plays. Plus 7 rebounds. The team should win MVP but WCS would be my pick with Aaron being 1B if we win the title.

What about the job Ulis did because the refs called two fouls on Andrew.

Guys are just over passing. We should have 3 more baskets but guys are being too unselfish.

What shooting by the twins. They are so undervalued nationally. They have come to play all tourney.

Lee gave us 4 good minutes after the first media timeout. He crashed the glass.

This game is far from over. Arkansas gets the ball first and will look to make a push. Foul trouble could derail us.

Thats what I said last game. We play the run game better than them.

I do think teams that run can beat us if they can make transition 3s. Ark isn't hitting many threes atm so we are able to overwhelm them with our size.

Foul trouble should never hurt us.

XPS, did you not see the fouls they were calling in the first half. Both Andrew and Karl have two fouls. If the refs continue to insert themselves into this game foul trouble could be an issue, and I don't just mean from a depth perspective (obviously we have talent to go to in a pinch), but if Arkansas is back in the bonus with 9 or 10 minutes left in the half, who says they can't use our foul trouble to eek out a win.

28 SEC Tournament Championships!!! Same as my age!

Glad for Willie. Our only non McDonald's guy. Willie got right alright. Think he had motivation today! The twins are so oft-maligned. They did it today! Aaron was all tourney last year, too. Maybe we don't have the best player, but I'm glad we've got these players!
