  1. Interesting note here in that a horrible call by an incompetent official resulted in a #2 seed and sharing the conference championship with a Texas school from Cowtown. USA (actually College Station is a pretty nice place but thanx a lot Pat Adams.

  2. UK has one thing in common this year with the only first round game. UK lost to two of the worst teams in the conference, Auburn and Tennessee.

    That is why UK is the #2 seed, not the loss at College Station, regardless of how that loss occurred.

    1. IF this is indeed factual then conference seedings do boggle ones mind.
      Two teams tie for a conference title with identical records (check)
      One of those teams has beaten the other in head to head competition (check)
      The winning team in the head to head is selected because the loser lost to other conference teams but not the “winning team” ?
      You’re saying then that head to head wins/losses have no importance in determining a conference tournament seed?
      If wins and/or losses are weighted why is this feature not made known to the general public?
