As a UK fan, I was hoping they'd lose in the SEC Tournament, since the NCAA tournament selection committee ignores those games when seeding the teams. I think today's loss knocks them from a #1 seed to a #2. I still hope they lose in the SEC tourney, though. Seldom does a team with both their conference tournament and the NCAA tournament, too.
Oh, and Illinois needed that loss. That may be the loss that propels them to the title.
I know, I meant Floridas senior night.
If they win the SEC tournament, which wont be easy given how Florida and South Carolina has played them this season, I think they will still be a no 1 seed. If UNC lost, that would have helped somewhat.
Joe Lunardi still has UK as a no 1 seed in the Albuquerque region.
