Tour­ney look

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE BASKETBALL -

Arkansas and South Carolina can se­cure dou­ble byes for the SEC Tour­na­ment with one vic­tory in their fi­nal two reg­u­lar-sea­son games. Ken­tucky and Florida have both locked in for dou­ble byes for the tour­na­ment, which starts March 8 at Bridge­stone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

On the bot­tom end of the bracket, Mis­souri (2-14) and LSU (1-15) are as­sured of play­ing in the open­ing round Wed­nes­day, while Mis­sis­sippi State (5-11) would need to win its fi­nal two games and have other fac­tors fall in its fa­vor to avoid the first-round games for the No. 11-No. 14 seeds.

If the tour­na­ment was held to­day, Arkansas (11-5) would hold the tiebreaker for the No. 3 seed over South Carolina, and Auburn (6-10) would join the bot­tom four teams.
