SEC Tournament 2022 Preview

This year’s SEC tournament features four top 25 teams, another two that  received votes in the last poll, and another five teams with winning records.

“So can we get hot?” Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said according to Bennett Durando of the Montgomery Advertiser. “That’s the deal.”

Fourth-ranked Auburn (27-4), the regular season SEC champion, comes in as a the No. 1 seed, and No. 9 Tennessee (23-7) owns the No. 2 seed. Defending SEC tournament champion Alabama (19-12) slipped out of the top 25 polls during the season. The Crimson Tide has the No. 6 seed but considered a lock to make the NCAA tournament according to ESPN’s John Gasaway.

The rest of the field features No. 5 Kentucky (25-6) as the No. 3 seed, looking like itself again after a nine-win season in 2020-2021. Fifteenth-ranked Arkansas (24-7) has the No. 4 seed followed by No. 5 seed LSU (21-10), which received top 25 votes. All five of the higher seeds have NCAA tournament seeding at stake.

“We could move up or down one depending on how it goes. There’s a lot of us right around each other on the five, six, seven line. I think how the conference tournament’s go are huge, that’s gonna be a big component,” LSU head coach Will Wade told the media via Sports Illustrated’s LSU Country. “The odds of losing that first game are all tough but once you get to that second one, the numbers really change between being a five or a six or a seven or an eight.”

With the five higher seeds starting with byes, South Carolina (18-12) comes in as the highest seed, No. 7, to know its opponent right off the bat. The Gamecocks will face No. 10 seed Mississippi State (17-14) on Thursday.

Texas A&M (20-11) and Florida (19-12) have the No. 8 and No. 9 seeds respectively and will also meet each other on Thursday. The Aggies and Gators both need solid showings to secure at-large bids to the NCAA tournament, Gasaway noted. Last time the two met, the Aggies edged the Gators 56-55 in a thriller on Feb. 15.

South Carolina and Mississippi State fall into the category of teams that need to win the SEC tournament to make the Big Dance. The same goes for No. 11 seed Vanderbilt (15-15), No. 12 seed Missouri (11-20), No. 13 seed Ole Miss (13-18), and No. 14 seed Georgia (6-25).

It will take a least a couple of major upsets for any of those bottom six teams to reach the NCAA tournament.

“But we’re fighting for our lives, man,” South Carolina senior guard Erik Stevenson said according to The State’s Michael Lananna. “We are playing for our season. Seniors are playing for their last go at it. And we’re trying to put ourselves in a position to make a run in March, starting with the SEC tournament. Hopefully our name is called on Selection Sunday.”
