SEC Tournament: Mississippi State preview

Kentucky closed out their regular season by defeating South Carolina-64 and now they look ahead to post season play with the SEC Tournament in Nashville.

Kentucky will be the 8th seed and will take on Mississippi State in the first game of the second round on March 11th at Noon ET on SEC Network. The winner of this matchup would advance to take on 1 seed Alabama in the quarterfinals.

With their current record and any chance to make it to NCAA Tournament, Kentucky would have to do what they did back in 1952 and win all four of their games. Kentucky is seeking their 7th SEC Championship under John Calipari and 32nd in program history.

The Wildcats leads the SEC with 31 SEC titles, more than the rest of the conference combined at 28. The Cats has an overall 134-26 record in the SEC Tournament. Kentucky is also 8-2 against Miss State in the SEC Tournament.
