SEC Basketball Tournament 2011 Bracket Results: Kentucky To SEC Championship

Alabama's stay in the SEC Tournament came to an abrupt end at the hands of the Kentucky Wildcats. Kentucky built a 16 point lead in the first half before blowing the game open in the second half finishing with a 72-58 victory. The Wildcats used a balanced offensive attack and a clamping defense to blow through the Crimson Tide. 

Josh Harrellson led the way for the Wildcats with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Brandon Knight, and DeAndre Liggins added 12 and 14 points respectively. 

Tony Mitchell led Alabama with 16 points. The waiting begins for the Crimson Tide who must now wait for the NCAA Selection Show to see if they did enough to earn a trip to the NCAA Tournament. In SB Nation's latest Bracketology projection, Alabama is one of the last four teams into the tournament. 

Kentucky moves on into the SEC Championship game where it awaits the winner of the Florida, Vanderbilt game later today. If there is cause for concern for the Wildcats, both Doron Lamb and DeAndre Liggins suffered ankle injuries late in the win over Alabama. Lamb's injury appeared to be much more serious as he had to be helped to the bench.
