The SEC Tournament features some of the biggest brands in college basketball, and it’s always a thrilling event leading up to the NCAA Tournament. Thirteen of the 14 SEC teams will be competing this year due to the Auburn Tigers handing themselves a postseason ban, which will make for a new format this season. The 2021 event is scheduled to be held in Nashville, Tennessee in March.
The 2020 version of this tournament was canceled due to the coronavirus, which allowed just a few SEC tournament games to be played before the college basketball season was shut down. The Kentucky Wildcats went into last year’s event as the No. 1 seed.
