SEC Tournament 2012 Bracket And Schedule

No. 1 Kentucky is the overwhelming favorite in the SEC Tournament, which starts on Thursday.

Kentucky heads into the 2012 SEC Tournament as the prohibitive favorites, having gone undefeated in league play, riding a 22-game winning streak and holding a 30-1 overall record. They await the winner of Thursday's game between No. 8 LSU and No. 9 Arkansas (full bracket here). A game against LSU could prove interesting though, as the tournament is being played in the Tigers' backyard at New Orleans Arena

Kentucky is the consensus No. 1 team in the country, but there really aren't any teams in the SEC even close. They finished six games ahead of Tennessee, who won a three-team tiebreaker for the No. 2 seed. No other team in the SEC won more than 22 games either.
