Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee and Vanderbilt each join the SEC Tournament on Friday after receiving a free pass into the quarterfinals by virtue of their regular season record. They'll face Thursday's winners as the tournament inches closer to handing out its auto-bid on Sunday, just before the selections are announced.
LSU earned the right to face Kentucky with a win over Arkansas on Thursday, which probably isn't the best reward for the Tigers. Alabama also moved on after its win over South Carolina in the second matchup of the day. Ole Miss will face Tennessee thanks to a win over Auburn, and Georgia upset Mississippi State in the night cap.
