Tennessee gets 3-seed in SEC Men's Tournament

By  | 

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The final regular season standings are set for the Southeastern Conference.

Tennessee still has a chance to end up with a share of the regular season title, depending on what happens in Saturday night's LSU vs. Vanderbilt game; but the Vols are locked into the 3-seed spot for next week's SEC Tournament.

Tennessee and Kentucky split their two head-to-head matchups this season.

According to SEC rules, the tiebreaker method past head-to-head record is:
"Won-lost record of the two teams versus the No. 1 seed (and proceeding through the No. 14 seed, if necessary)"

Kentucky won the tiebreaker with Tennessee because Kentucky beat Auburn twice this season. Tennessee lost to Auburn Saturday in its only matchup with the Tigers.

Tennessee and Kentucky have identical records against every team ahead of 5-seeded Auburn.

The Vols will play either Mississippi State, Texas A&M, or Vanderbilt on Friday night in the late game.
