Auburn’s the 1-seed, but there’s a lot of basketball to be played before we even take the floor in St. Louis.

Auburn’s the SEC Champions, and if Tennessee wants to try and spin it that they’re sharing the title, that’s their prerogative. If they were truly the conference winner, they’d be the 1-seed in St. Louis, and they’re not.

While Auburn won’t begin play at the 2018 SEC Tournament until Friday afternoon, there’s a ton of basketball to be played leading up to that point. Here’s the rundown:

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 7

Game 1 - 6 pm CST - 12 Georgia vs 13 Vanderbilt

Game 2 - 8:30 pm CST - 11 South Carolina vs 14 Ole Miss

THURSDAY, MARCH 8

Game 3 - 12 pm CST - 8 Texas A&M vs 9 Alabama

Game 4 - 2:30 pm CST - 5 Missouri vs Game 1 Winner

Game 5 - 6 pm CST - 7 Mississippi State vs 10 LUS

Game 6 - 8:30 pm CST - 6 Arkansas vs Game 2 Winner

FRIDAY, MARCH 9

Game 7 - 12 pm CST - 1 Auburn vs Game 3 Winner

Game 8 - 2:30 pm CST - 4 Kentucky vs Game 4 Winner

Game 9 - 6 pm CST - 2 Tennessee vs Game 5 Winner

Game 10 - 8:30 pm CST - 3 Florida vs Game 6 Winner

SATURDAY, MARCH 10

Game 11 - 12 pm CST - Game 7 Winner vs Game 8 Winner

Game 12 - 2:30 pm CST - Game 9 Winner vs Game 10 Winner

SUNDAY, MARCH 11

Game 13 - 12 pm CST - Game 11 Winner vs Game 12 Winner

If you so wish, here are links to the bracket on the SEC’s website, and in PDF form as well. That last one’s going to be suitable for printing and framing when Auburn wins the whole thing.

The Tigers will play either Alabama or Texas A&M on Friday afternoon, with a win projecting them into a likely contest against Kentucky. It’s not going to be easy this coming week, but are we going to expect some kind of subpar effort from this team? Absolutely not. We’ve cut down one set of nets, and there are more nylons waiting for us in St. Louis.

War Eagle!
