Our SEC Basketball Power Poll. Final results at Garnet and Black Attack.
1. Kentucky: The Wildcats are the only team in the top-5 of scoring and scoring defense in SEC play. It's not just John Wall, you know.
2. Vanderbilt: Jermaine Beal and A. J. Ogilvy have both increased their scoring averages in SEC play. Beal is up to 17.6 from 14.8. Ogilvy is up to 14.5 from 13.3.
3. Mississippi State: Their four losses in the SEC have all been on the road and by single digits. Defeating UK on Feb. 16 would get the Bulldogs back in the tournament picture.
4. Tennessee: Did not look good on the road at Vandy and UK. They get Georgia this week who embarrassed the Vols with a 15 point win in Athens in January.
5. Arkansas: The loss to Alabama hurt, but the Hogs have won 5 of 6 on the Courtney Fortson Comeback Tour. Fortson is scoring 19.8 points in SEC play.
6. Ole Miss: The Rebels have lost 3 of 4 games, but two were on the road at UK and Miss State.
7. South Carolina: Averaging 22.8 points per game, Devan Downey is always hot. Too bad his team can get cold and lose to Georgia, while attempting only six free throws.
8. Florida: When does spring football start?
9. Georgia: Trey Thompkins (17.2ppg, 7.7rpg) has become a star for the best 3-7 team in SEC history. UGA is also 0-8 in road games this season.
10. Alabama: Remember when Bama was 11-4, starting SEC play with a win over LSU? Since then, they are 3-7.
11. Auburn: They are 47th nationally in scoring with 75.7 points per game. So that's cool.
12. LSU: Your defending SEC Regular Season Champions are 0-11 in SEC play in 2010. Tasmin Mitchell came back for this?
