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.
