Current SEC basketball standings: One month in and almost halfway home
As the calendar turned to February, SEC teams prepared to play their eighth conference game of the season. It’s not quite the halfway point of the 18-game conference season, but it’s enough to give fans a pretty good idea of where every team stands.
At the top, Tennessee and Kentucky added to their winning streaks, but LSU dropped its first conference game of the season, losing 90-89 at home against Arkansas. Will Wade’s squad is still the No. 3 team in the SEC with a 7-1 conference record and 17-4 mark overall.
South Carolina remains one of the conference’s more surprising teams, getting to 6-2 in SEC play with a 86-80 win over Georgia. The Gamecocks are barely above .500 (11-10) overall, but sit two games up in the conference standings over a cluster of 4-4 teams.
Those 4-4 squads will be looking to turn the corner in February and into March Madness. After UT and UK’s impressive streaks of 16 and eight, respectively, no other SEC team currently holds an active winning streak better than two games.
