Half of the SEC Tournament's opening round is in the books, with the LSU Tigers giving the Arkansas Razorbacks another road loss, 70-54, and the Alabama Crimson Tide outslugging the South Carolina Gamecocks, 63-57. LSU will advance to take on the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats bright and early, while Bama gets the Florida Gators in the next Friday game.
Still ahead are a pair of games, including the Dog Bowl between the Georgia Bulldogs and the Mississippi St. Bulldogs. Expect speedy and resourceful Mississippi Rebels fans to have crafted signs referencing the brand new points-shaving scandal surrounding Auburn Tigers basketball.
