Editor’s note: Wimp and Barry Sanderson will be using their decades of college basketball coaching experience to provide their own SEC rankings each week along with some insight. This is the fourth installment.


Another week in the SEC brought more shakeup in the conference standings. No team has separated itself from the pack yet and half of the conference is within two games of first place.

Here’s a look at how Inside the Locker Room ranks the SEC as of February 15:


  1. Kentucky
  2. LSU
  3. South Carolina
  4. Texas A&M
  5. Alabama
  6. Florida
  7. Vanderbilt
  8. Georgia
  9. Ole Miss
  10. Arkansas
  11. Tennessee
  12. Mississippi State
  13. Missouri
  14. Auburn


  1. Kentucky
  2. LSU
  3. South Carolina
  4. Texas A&M
  5. Vanderbilt
  6. Georgia
  7. Alabama
  8. Florida
  9. Ole Miss
  10. Arkansas
  11. Mississippi State
  12. Missouri
  13. Tennessee
  14. Auburn

Things are starting to look normal at the top of the SEC standings with Kentucky back on top with blowout wins versus Georgia and at South Carolina. LSU, after a tough loss at South Carolina, got back on track with a solid win versus Texas A&M at home.

The Aggies need to get things turned around quick after losing their fourth straight game. They have three straight home games with Ole Miss and Kentucky coming in this week.

The most impressive team the last couple of weeks has been Alabama. They had two huge wins last week beating Texas A&M at home and winning for the first time since 1995 at Florida. Alabama has played its way into a possible NCAA bid if it can stay steady down the stretch. Florida needs to get back on track but it must do it on the road this week having to play at Georgia and South Carolina.

With each team having 6 games remaining we believe South Carolina has the easy route to possibly win the conference. Here are the games left for the top four teams battling for the No. 1 seed at the conference tournament in Nashville

Kentucky: 9-3 (Tennessee, at Texas A&M, Alabama, at Vandy, at Florida, LSU)

LSU: 9-3 (Alabama, at Tennessee, at Arkansas, Florida, Missouri, at Kentucky)

South Carolina: 8-4 (at Missouri, Florida, Tennessee, at Mississippi State, Georgia, at Arkansas)

Texas A&M: 7-5 (Ole Miss, Kentucky, Mississippi State, at Missouri, at Auburn, Vandy)

Best of Tide 99.1
