SEC Update

With eight games left in the SEC season, the UK Wildcats have clawed their way to within one game of first place.  The Cats are also all alone in second place for the first time all year.  But there is a long way to go, and the Cats have a very difficult path the rest of the way.  Their remaining road games are at Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Georgia.  They also have home games left against Vandy, Missouri, Mississippi State, and Florida.  Adding all together, Ken Pomeroy thinks the Cats will finish 13-5 in SEC play -- well behind the Gators, who he expects to go 16-2.  We will just have to hope that he's wrong:

Conference games only (KenPom rankings next to each team):

1.  Florida:  9-1
18.  Kentucky:  8-2
34.  Mississippi:  7-3
78.  Alabama:  7-3
39.  Missouri:  6-4
111.  Georgia:  6-4 (Georgia has won 5 games in a row)
70.  Arkansas:  5-5
95.  Texas A & M:  4-6
100.  Tennessee:  4-6
116.  Louisiana St:  4-6
131.  Vanderbilt:  3-7
138.  Auburn:  3-7
194.  S. Carolina:  2-8
228.  Mississippi St:  2-8
