TEAM-BY-TEAM NOTES

ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE
Alabama finished out its 2006-07 season with a 20-12 overall record, the fifth time in nine seasons at UA that Mark Gottfried has won 20 or more games. Playing most of the season with limited use of its injured AP Preseason All-American, Alabama advanced to postseason play in the NIT where it fell on the road, in overtime, at UMass, 89-87. It was the eighth time in nine seasons Mark Gottfried's UA team advanced to the postseason as his Tide teams have made five NCAA trips and now three NIT appearances. Alabama produced All-SEC players in Richard Hendrix and Jermareo Davidson. Both were 2nd Team All-SEC in the SEC Coaches' ballots and Hendrix was 2nd Team AP All-SEC. In SEC games played, Richard Hendrix led the SEC in field goal percentage. Alabama went 14-2 at home in 2006-07, giving Mark Gottfried's UA teams a 122-20 (.859%) home record. Alabama set the home attendance record in 2007 with 196,552 fans coming for 16 home games, bettering last season's record attendance by 7,497 and playing two fewer home games to set the new attendance record. Alabama averaged 12,284 fans in 16 home appearances, selling out six SEC games.

ARKANSAS RAZORBACKS
Fifth-seeded Southern Cal knocked off Arkansas, 77-60. The 12th-seeded Razorbacks (21-14) got 15 points from freshman guard Patrick Beverley, but saw their second straight season end unhappily in the first round of the tournament. Sonny Weems had 13 points for Arkansas and teammate Charles Thomas, who came off the bench after spraining his ankle in the Southeastern Conference tournament, had 10. Arkansas had earned its 29th bid to the NCAA Tournament, which ranks ninth-best in the nation. Arkansas recorded its 27th 20-win season, but the Razorbacks have had back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time since the 1998-99 seasons when UA was 24-9 and 23-11, respectively. The Razorbacks have an all-time record of 39-28 in NCAA Tournament play. UA is 4-2 against teams from the Pac-10 in the NCAA Tournament. Arkansas was 4-7 against NCAA Tournament teams and 7-3 against teams in the NIT. Junior Steven Hill, the SEC's Defensive Player of the Year and leader in blocked shots, was just the second Razorback to get 100 blocks in a season. Freshman Michael Washington had season highs of 17 points and seven rebounds against Florida in the SEC Tournament championship game.

AUBURN TIGERS
Sophomore Quantez Robertson dished out more assists in his first two seasons than any other Tiger in history. Robertson finished with 293 assists, including 130 last year as a freshmen and 163 this season.Auburn University's Board of Trustees Property and Facility Committee has approved 360 Architecture of Kansas City, Mo., as its primary designer for the new arena that is expected to break ground in June 2008. The first season the Tigers would play in the new arena, which will seat between 8,500 and 10000, is 2010-11. Auburn's 81-57 victory over No. 12 Alabama Jan. 23 was the largest margin of victory in Auburn school history when an unranked Tiger team defeated a nationally-ranked team. Auburn snapped its 15-game losing streak to nationally-ranked teams with its 83-80 upset over No. 22 Tennessee Jan. 17 and followed that up with an 81-57 victory over No. 12 Alabama Jan. 23. Auburn has defeated three ranked teams this year for the first time since the 1999-2000 season when the Tigers also won three. Freshman DeWayne Reed was named to the Coaches Freshman All-SEC team.

FLORIDA GATORS
The University of Florida men's basketball team capped another magical season with an 84-75 victory over Ohio State at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to claim the national title for the secondstraight year. With the victory, the Gators became the first team since 1991 and 1992 to repeat as champions (Duke). Florida (35-5) won the final 10 games of the season, and now owns an 18-game win streak in postseason play (12-0 in the NCAA Tournament). The Gators snapped the Buckeye's 22-game win streak. Head coach Billy Donovan joined elite company as he became the 12th coach to win multiple NCAA titles and is one of only four active coaches to do so (Mike Kryzewski 3, Bobby Knight 3, Jim Calhoun 2). He also became the third-youngest coach to win multiple NCAA titles at 41 years of age (Knight, Indiana - 35, 40; Phil Woolpert, San Francisco - 39, 40). UF remains the only program in history to hold both men's basketball and football championships at the same time. Corey Brewer was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four. He finished with 13 points and eight rebounds. Al Horford led all Gators with 18 points and 12 rebounds, while Taurean Green had 16 points. Lee Humphrey posted 14 points and was 4-for-7 on threes.

GEORGIA BULLDOGS
Georgia finished the 2006-07 with a 19-14 overall record, a four-game improvement from the previous campaign. The Bulldogs also took a big step forward in posting their first .500 record in SEC play since 2003. Their 8-8 conference mark, good only for fifth place in the Eastern Division, would have tied for the SEC West Division championship. Georgia advanced to the second round of the National Invitation Tournament, defeating Fresno State before ending its season in a loss at Air Force. Its win over Fresno State was the program's first win in either the NCAA or NIT postseason tournaments in five years. Sundiata Gaines, who was named to the coaches' All-SEC second team, led Georgia in rebounds, assists, steals and minutes played. His 154 assists were the second-highest total ever in a single season by a Georgia player. Senior guard Levi Stukes became the school's all-time leader in 3-point shots taken (683) and made (261). In his final home game, Stukes connected on eight of nine shots from behind the arc, finishing with 30 points in the win over Fresno State.

KENTUCKY WILDCATS
Kentucky finished the season 22-12. It was the Wildcats 52nd 20-win season and 17th straight year that UK has registered a 20-win season. Tubby Smith himself has 14-consecutive 20-win seasons as a head coach. It is the second-longest current streak in the country. Kentucky has a 98-43 record in the NCAA Tournament and is 14-5 in second round games since the field was expanded to 64 in 1985. Kentucky suffered its worst defeat in the NCAA Tournament since a 14-point loss (83-69) to Marquette in the 2003 NCAA regional finals. Kentucky has hit a three-pointer in 644 straight games, the third longest streak in the country behind UNLV and Vanderbilt.For the second straight game UK's opponent hit its first four, three-pointers in the game. Villanova sank its first four treys before finishing 7-21. Kansas hit their first four three-pointers and finished 18- 23. Bobby Perry has averaged 18.0 ppg in his last four NCAA games. Jodie Meeks has hit 17 straight from the charity line and 27 of his last 28. The last time UK had two players score 20 or more points (Randolph Morris-22, Bobby Perry-21) in an NCAA Tournament game was against UConn at the 2006 NCAA Tournament. In that game Patrick Sparks tallied 28 points to Bobby Perry's 20.

LSU TIGERS
The Tigers concluded their regular season by splitting two games at the SEC Tournament, downing No. 22 Tennessee, 76-67, in overtime before falling to Western Division co-champion, Ole Miss, 80-60. The Tigers finished the regular season with a 17-15 record, the sixth consecutive winning season the Tigers have posted and that is the third longest winning season streak in the school's 99 years of college basketball. The Tigers averaged 10,002 in paid attendance this season at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, the sixth consecutive season the Tigers have increased paid attendance. Glen Davis past the 900 career rebound mark, becoming just the second player in LSU history to record 1,500 career points, 900 career rebounds and 100 blocked shots. Davis finishes the season in the top 10 in both career points and rebounds. Davis (17.7 ppg), Tasmin Mitchell (14.5 ppg) and Terry Martin (10.5 ppg) led the Tigers during the 2006-07 season. LSU's win over Tennessee gave the Tigers three wins over teams ranked in the Associated Press poll. LSU has won its last four meetings against AP Top 10 teams dating back to wins over Duke and Texas in last year's regional in Atlanta.

OLE MISS REBELS
An Ole Miss season that featured an SEC West title and a postseason return came to a close Monday at Clemson in the NIT second round. Clemson won its eighth straight NIT home game, 89-68, over the Rebels. Ole Miss ended its first season under coach Andy Kennedy at 21-13, marking their most wins since 2001. Kennedy earned SEC Coach of the Year honors, as the Rebels grabbed their first division championship in six years. The Rebels were trying to extend their first postseason appearance since 2002. But their high-scoring backcourt of Clarence Sanders and Bam Doyne managed only 18 points, 13 fewer than their combined averages. For the second straight game, Todd Abernethy led Ole Miss with 18 points. Dwayne Curtis scored 15 second-half points with eight rebounds and three steals. After a four-year drought, Ole Miss returned to postseason play, as the Rebels received a bid to the NIT. Fourth-seeded Ole Miss knocked off No. 5 seed Appalachian State in the first round in Oxford. Ole Miss was back in postseason play for the 13th time in the program's history and the first time since earning an NCAA Tournament berth in 2002.

MISSISSIPPI STATE BULLDOGS
The Bulldogs advanced to the MasterCard NIT Semifinals in New York before falling to eventual tournament champion West Virginia. MSU has now made seven postseason tournament appearances (4 NCAA & 3 NIT) in nine seasons under the direction of head coach Rick Stansbury. MState recorded its sixth 20-win season under Stansbury's guidance and 13th overall in school history with this year's 21-14 mark. Stansbury (185-104) will enter the new campaign needing seven victories to surpass his predecessor Richard Williams (191-163; 1987-98) in becoming the all-time winningest basketball coach in school history. MSU's corps of nine underclassmen (five sophomores and four freshmen) combined for 73 percent of the team's scoring this past season, along with 69 percent of the rebounding, 88 percent of the assists and 76 percent of the club's minutes played. The 2006-07 Bulldogs set new season school team standards for most points scored (2,692), most field goals made (951) and attempted (2,071), most three-point field goals made (275) and attempted (775) and most blocked shots (222). Jamont Gordon became the first MSU player to lead the Bulldogs in scoring (16.0 ppg), rebounding (7.1 rpg) and assists (5.3 apg) during the same season.

SOUTH CAROLINA GAMECOCKS
Carolina finished the season at 14-16 overall and 4-12 in the SEC. The sub-500 record for the Gamecocks is their first since going 12-16 in 2002-03. This season ended Carolina's streak of three straight trips to post-season play. The four conference wins by Carolina are their fewest since posting three in the 1998-99 season. Carolina's 337 turnovers are the fewest for a South Carolina team in history while the 11.2 average is also the lowest turnover average for the Gamecocks in a season. Carolina has played at least 30 games in 10 of the last 12 seasons which include five of the six seasons under Head Coach Dave Odom. The 15 rebounds by Wallace in the SEC Tournament was the most ever made by a Gamecock in the conference tourney and his five blocked shots were also a Gamecock conference tourney record. Wallace has played in more games than any other Gamecock in his career. He played in 135 career games. He is also the all-time block leader in Carolina history with 249 blocked shots. Tre' Kelley averaged 18.9 ppg, which is the most by a Gamecock since Zam Frederick averaged 28.9 a game during the 1980-81 season.

TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS
Tennessee advanced to the Sweet 16 of the 2007 NCAA Tournament with wins over Long Beach State (121-86) and Virginia (77-74). The Vols fell to No. 1-seeded Ohio State 84-85 in the South Region Semifinals in San Antonio, Texas. The Vols appeared in their 15th NCAA Tournament overall, second straight and sixth in the last 10 years. Tennessee finished the season with a 24-11 overall record and a 10-6 SEC mark. UT's 24 wins are the secondmost in school history. The Vols set school records for 3-pointers (327), steals (336) and points (2,831) on the season. UT's home attendance of 19,661 this season was the second-largest average in school history. Chris Lofton, who was named the SEC Player of the Year and a second team All-America by the Associated Press, led the SEC with 20.8 points and 3.42 3-pointers per game. Lofton's 313 career 3-pointers rank third in SEC history. JaJuan Smith (15.2 ppg) joined Lofton in the backcourt to form the highest scoring duo in the SEC. Smith's 73 steals are the second-most in school history while Dane Bradshaw finished the year tied for third with 67 pilfers. Three of the Vols' top five scorers were freshmen and accounted for nearly 40 pct. of UT's points and 46 pct. of its rebounds. Ramar Smith led the Vols' freshmen with 10.7 ppg.

VANDERBILT COMMODORES
Vanderbilt advanced to its second NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 appearance in four years, posting a 22-12 record and 10-6 SEC mark. Senior Derrick Byars, named SEC Player of the Year by the league's coaches, led the Commodores in scoring in 18 games including seven of nine contests against ranked opponents. Byars led Vanderbilt in points (17.0), assists (3.4) and steals (1.4) and was second in rebounds (4.9). Shan Foster averaged 15.6 points and a career-high 4.6 rebounds while earning second team All-SEC accolades. Dan Cage finished second in the SEC, shooting 44.2 percent from 3-point range. He made at least one 3-pointer in 30 of 34 games this season. Kevin Stallings earned SEC Coach of the Year honors from his peers and became the first Vanderbilt coach to lead two squads to the Sweet 16 since the Tournament expanded to at least 64 teams in 1985. He is also only the second coach in program history to register three 20-win seasons in Nashville (Roy Skinner – six). Vanderbilt won seven games against ranked opponents – third most in the nation behind UCLA and North Carolina.


POSTSEASON NOTES

GATORS CAPTURE BACK-TO-BACK NCAA TITLES

The University of Florida men's basketball team capped another magical season with an 84-75 victory over Ohio State at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to claim the national title for the second-straight year.

With the victory, the Gators became the first team since 1991 and 1992 to repeat as champions (Duke). Florida (35-5) won the final 10 games of the season, and now owns an 18-game win streak in postseason play (12-0 in the NCAA Tournament). The Gators snapped the Buckeye's 22-game win streak.

Head coach Billy Donovan joined elite company as he became the 12th coach to win multiple NCAA titles and is one of only four active coaches to do so (Mike Kryzewski 3, Bobby Knight 3, Jim Calhoun 2). He also became the third-youngest coach to win multiple NCAA titles at 41 years of age (Knight, Indiana - 35, 40; Phil Woolpert, San Francisco - 39, 40).

The University of Florida has now won 21 national champions in all sports combined with the most recent before tonight coming when the Gator football team also defeated Ohio State in the BCS national title game (41-14, Jan. 8, 2007). UF remains the only program in history to hold both championships at the same time.

Three pointers proved to be a major story as UF finished the night 10-for-18, while the Buckeyes were 4-for-23. Corey Brewer was named the Most Outstanding Player of the tournament. He finished the night with 13 points and eight rebounds. Al Horford led all Gators with 18 points and 12 rebounds, while Taurean Green had 16 points. Lee Humphrey posted 14 points and was 4-for-7 on three point attempts.


SECond to NONE

The SEC is the first conference to win the Division I National Championship in Football (Florida), Men's Basketball (Florida) and Women's Basketball (Tennessee) in the same school year. The Southeastern Conference won all three during the 2006-07 academic year.

Only the SEC and the Big East have ever won both the men's and women's basketball titles in one season. SEC won both three times in 1996, 1998 and 2007. The Big East has won both twice in 2003 and 2004.

The SEC swept both the NIT and NCAA Tournaments in 2006 with Florida knocking off UCLA, 73-57, to earns its first NCAA championship and South Carolina defeating Michigan, 76-64, to earn their second straight NIT title.

The Southeastern Conference became the first conference since the Big East in 2003 to win both titles in a season. Only four conferences have won both the NIT and NCAA title, including the ACC (1992) and Big Ten (1979).

Ironically, Florida and South Carolina met for the 2006 SEC Tournament Championship with the Gators winning, 49-47.


SEC FIRST IN NCAA TOURNEY RECORD AND WINS

With a 11-4 record in the 2007 NCAA Tournament, the SEC ranks first among all conferences in record and wins in the “Big Dance” over the last two seasons. The Southeastern Conference has amassed a 24 victories during the last two NCAA Tournaments.

SEC IN THE FINAL FOUR

Florida's berth to the 2007 Final Four is the second straight for the SEC. Florida and LSU's berth in last year's Final Four ended a five-year drought for the Southeastern Conference. Florida's runner up finish in 2000 was the last appearance in the Final Four for an SEC team before 2006.

The last time the SEC had two teams in the Final Four was 1996 (Kentucky and Mississippi State). The SEC also had two teams in 1994 (Arkansas and Florida). Florida ‘06, Kentucky '96 and Arkansas '94 all won the national championships when the SEC has had two teams.

LSU returned to the Final Four for the fourth time in school history in 2006 and the first since 1986. Florida made its fourth appearance in school history this season.

With Florida's return to the Final Four in 2000, the SEC was once again in the Final Four after a one-year-hiatus following a six-year streak of Final Four appearances and a five-year streak of having a team playing in the national championship game.

Prior to the 1993-98 stretch of Final Four appearances, the SEC had back-to-back entries only on two other occasions: Kentucky in 1948 and 1949; and Georgia in 1983 and Kentucky in 1984.


2007 NATIONAL INVITATION TOURNAMENT

Mississippi State made its first appearance since 2001 and sixth overall. Mississippi State defeated Mississippi Valley State in the First Round and Bradley in the Second Round before knocking off Florida State in the Quarterfinals to reach the NIT Semifinals in New York. State lost to West Virginia, 63-62, in the semifnals. The Bulldogs have a 6-6 record in NIT action.

Alabama made its first appearance since 2001 and 10th overall. Alabama lost at Massachusetts in the First Round. The Crimson Tide has a 17-12 record in NIT action.

Georgia made its first appearance since 2004 and 11th overall. Georgia defeated Fresno State in the First Round before losing at Air Force in the Second Round. UGA has an 11-11 record in NIT action. Ole Miss made its first appearance since 2000 and seventh overall.

Ole Miss defeated Appalachian State before losing at Clemson in the Second Round. The Rebels have a 7-7 record in NIT action.

SEC teams have combined for a 112-88 (.560) record in 86 appearances (for current membership, 117-94 (.555) in 92 appearances) in the NIT.


SEC THIRD IN POSTSEASON BIDS

With nine postseason bids for men's basketball, the SEC once again was among the leaders in the nation in postseason appearances in the NCAA and NIT tournaments. SEC men's teams garnered five NCAA bids and four NIT bids.

2006 NCAA TOURNAMENT

The University of Florida men's basketball team capped a magical season with a 73-57 victory over UCLA at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis to bring home the school's first NCAA Championship on the hardwood. The Gators (33-6) captured their final 11 games of the season, including a perfect 6-0 NCAA Tourney run, and snapped the Bruins' (32-7) winning streak at 12 games.

Head coach Billy Donovan became the third person to play in a Final Four (for Providence in 1987; third-place finish) and then win an NCAA Championship as a coach. Bobby Knight and Dean Smith are the other coaches to win national titles after playing in a Final Four.

Chosen as the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four, sophomore Joakim Noah totaled 16 points, nine rebounds and a title-game record six blocks to key the victory for the Gators. Noah's six blocked shots matched an individual Final Four record set by Danny Manning of Kansas in 1988 and equaled by Marcus Camby of UMass in 1996. He finished with 29 for the tournament, breaking the Tourney record previously held by Arizona's Loren Woods.

It was the SEC's ninth national title, as Kentucky (seven) and Arkansas (one) have also emerged victorious.

The SEC closed out the season with 13 wins in the 2006 NCAA Tournament, first in the nation. The SEC reached the Final Four for the first time since Florida advanced to the championship game in 2000.

2006 also marked the 17th straight year the SEC had at least one team advance to the Sweet 16 (Florida and LSU) and the 12th time in 14 years that the conference had a team advance to the Elite Eight.

A list of conferences and their records in the 2006 NCAA Tournament follows below, ranked by wins.

HOW SWEET IT IS

2007 also marked the 18th straight year the SEC had at least one team advance to the Sweet 16 and the 13th time in 15 years that the conference had a team advance to the Elite Eight.

The SEC record for most Sweet 16 appearances in an NCAA Tournament is four. In 1986, Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky and LSU advanced past the first two rounds. In 1996, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky and Mississippi State all advanced to the regional semifinals.

This season, Florida, Tennessee and Vanderbilt advanced to the Sweet 16. It's the first time since 1996 that 60 percent or more (three of the five NCAA teams) of the SEC teams that earned NCAA berths advanced to the second weekend. In 1996, all four NCAA teams advanced to the Sweet 16.

In 2004, Alabama and Vanderbilt became the 10th and 11th SEC teams since 1996 to advance to the Sweet 16. The SEC leads the nation with 11 of its 12 members reaching the Sweet 16 since 1996.

SEC AMONG FINAL FOUR LEADERS

In the last 15 NCAA Tournaments (1993-2007), the SEC's 12 Final Four appearances are the second most by any conference.

With Florida and LSU returning to the Final Four in the 2006 season, the SEC has had a total of five different teams to make the national semifinals, behind only the Big Ten's seven over the 15-year span.

This year's Final Four showing gives the SEC its 22nd all-time appearances (27th including five appearances by Arkansas prior to joining the SEC).

NCAA SUCCESS SINCE 1990

The decade of the 1990s began a successful ride for the SEC in the NCAA Tournament.

Since 1990, the SEC has emerged as the nation's toughest basketball conference from the top to the bottom. The league has produced five national championships (Arkansas in 1994, Kentucky in 1996 and 1998, Florida in 2006 and 2007) and 13 Final Four appearances. Three times the SEC has had two teams in the Final Four in the same year (Arkansas and Florida in 1994, Kentucky and Mississippi State in 1996, Florida and LSU in 2006).

In a truly remarkable feat, the SEC held the title of “King and Queen of College Basketball” as the league won both men's and women's basketball NCAA titles in 1996 and 1998 when the Tennessee Lady Vols took home the women's crown as Kentucky captured the men's title. The SEC accomplished the feat a third time in 2007 when the Tennessee Lady Vols took home the women's crown as Florida captured the men's title.

The SEC boasted six straight Final Four appearances (1993-98) with five straight appearances in the national championship game (1994-98).

Here's a quick glance inside the numbers for the SEC in the NCAA Tournament since 1990.

                      Actual             Current
                    Membership         Membership

FIRST ROUND SUCCESS

The SEC was 4-1 this year in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to extend its nine-year first-round record to 37-15.

In 1999, the SEC dispelled the first-round jinx that had loomed over the league in the 1997 and 1998 NCAA Tournaments as all six league teams earned opening round wins. The perfect 6-0 record set the standard as the SEC became the first conference to have six teams win their first-round games in the same season.


SEC VS. THE TOP 5 SEEDS

Since 1985, the SEC has held its own against the top five seeds in the NCAA Tournament compiling a 62-52 (.544) record over that stretch.

The SEC proved to be tough opponents for top five seeds in the 2006 tournament with league teams earning wins over two No. 1 seeds (Duke and Villanova) and two No. 2 seeds (Texas and UCLA).

Seed      '85-00  '02  '03  '04  '05  '06  '07   TOT

OVERTIME SUCCESS IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT

With Vanderbilt's double overtime win versus Washington State, the SEC moved its NCAA Tournament overtime record to 19-10.

The win made it seven out of the last eight in games going into the extra session in the NCAA Tournament over the last 10 years.

The SEC's most overtime games in an NCAA Tournament is three, which occurred in 1995. League teams won all three of those overtime games that year as Alabama defeated Pennsylvania in its opening round game while Arkansas needed back-to-back overtime wins over Syracuse and Memphis en route to its national championship run.

Over the past 13 NCAA tournaments (1995-2007), league teams have totaled an 11-3 record in games going into overtime.


SPREADING THE WEALTH

Since the 1980-81 season, each of the 12 SEC schools has captured either an SEC divisional, overall or tournament title and 11 different schools have won or shared the SEC Championship since the league's inception in 1933.

The wealth was truly shared in 2003 as the Alabama and Georgia joined the ranks of SEC Divisional Champions. All 12 schools have won or shared a divisional title.

During the last 18 seasons, six schools captured their inaugural SEC title. Florida began the string by winning the school's first-ever basketball crown in 1989. Georgia followed in 1990. Arkansas won the 1992 title in its first season in the SEC and South Carolina earned the top spot in 1997.

SETTING THE STAGE

History has shown that the SEC Tournament championship trophy has been a good luck charm of sorts as past tournament champions have enjoyed great success in the NCAA Tournament.

Well, that luck did not prove well for Arkansas in 2000 as the Razorbacks lost in the NCAA Tournament first round, a first for the SEC Tournament Champion since Alabama did the same in 1989.

Of the past 29 SEC Tournament Champions (1979-2007), 21 have advanced to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. Kentucky reached the 1999 NCAA Tournament Midwest Regional Finals for its fifth straight trip to the Elite Eight. That marked the fifth consecutive year that the SEC Tournament Champion had advanced to the Sweet 16.

Only three times since the renewal has the SEC Tournament champion failed to win at least one NCAA Tournament game (1981, 1989 and 2000) and five times the tournament champion was eliminated in the second round (1979, 1994, 2002, 2004, 2005).

Since 1979, SEC Tournament Champions have compiled 14 Elite Eight showings and eight Final Four appearances with Kentucky (1998) and Florida (2006 and 2007) bringing home the national championship to the SEC. The Wildcats have four of the league's Final Four appearances in 1984, 1993, 1996 and 1998 while in Georgia made it to the Final Four in 1983 as the SEC Tournament Champion and Mississippi State (1996) and Florida mirrored that feat in both 2006 and 2007.

Breaking down the record shows the road teams have an 8-36 record in weekday conference games and a 16-36 record in weekend league games.

Last year, SEC road teams did not fare well with a 38-58 record. The breakdown was 18-25 in weekday night conference games and 20-33 in weekend conference tilts.


POLL WORTHY

The SEC is the only conference in the nation to have all of its teams ranked at least one week in the Associated Press top 25 (excluding preseason polls) since 1999-00. Simply stated, every SEC team has been a top-25 team nationally at one point in the last seven-plus seasons.

A look at SEC teams in the AP top 25 show the league's diversity since the 2000 season. Every team has been in the top 25.
