SEC Tournament 2013 schedule and bracket: Bottom 4 take the court on Wednesday

USA TODAY Sports

The biggest underdogs will look to keep hopes alive on the first day of the SEC Tournament.

The first round of the 2013 SEC Tournament gets going on Wednesday night when South Carolina and Mississippi State clash at 7:30 p.m. ET. Texas A&M and Auburn will follow to end the day's doubleheader at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. Both games will be broadcast by the SEC Network and ESPN3.

South Carolina and Mississippi State split their two meetings in the conference slate, with each team winning at home. The two teams played just one week ago, with the Gamecocks taking a 79-72 victory. The winner advances to face Tennessee on Thursday.

Texas A&M defeated Auburn on the road in the only meeting between the two teams in the regular season. The Tigers dropped 15 of their final 16 SEC games after starting 2-0. Missouri awaits the survivor and is likely hoping for Auburn to advance. The Aggies upset their fellow SEC newcomer earlier this year.

A schedule of Wednesday's games can be found below. Head to the SEC's official site for the complete bracket.

Wednesday, Mar. 13 (all times ET)

South Carolina vs. Mississippi State, 7:30 p.m., SEC Network/ESPN3
