Tune in Friday starting at 1 p.m. ET, as we take you through all of the games at the SEC Tournament.
Friday's quarterfinal schedule is as follows (all games are televised on SEC Network):
1 p.m. ET: 1 Florida vs. 8 LSU (in progress)
3:30 p.m. ET: 4 Alabama vs. 5 Tennessee
7:30 p.m. ET: 2 Kentucky vs. 10 Vanderbil
10 p.m. ET: 3 Ole Miss vs. 6 Missouri
Sunday - 3:12 p.m. ET
FINAL: Ole Miss 66, Florida 63. The Rebels are your SEC Champions!
Wow, what an ending to that game. Wilbekin missed the second, but a tip-out allowed Kenny Boynton to take a game-tying shot opportunity. It didn't go, and the Rebels escaped with victory.
It's certainly a sour taste in Florida's mouth, but they'll rest easy knowing they likely have a three-seed in the NCAA tournament. Meanwhile, Ole Miss silenced any chance at them missing a bid, as they received the championship's automatic bid.
Sunday - 3:10 p.m. ET
Holloway misses the chance to ice it, but Rebels smartly fouled to send Scottie Wilbekin to the line. He missed the first and will likely intentionally miss the next one to give the Gators a chance.
Sunday - 3:07 p.m. ET
Florida's Erik Murphy missed a fadeaway to tie it, and Rebels' Murphy Holloway is at the line to ice it. He made the first to go up three and now a timeout is called before his final shot. 66-63 Rebels, 8.6 seconds left.
Sunday - 3:05 p.m. ET
Ole Miss 65, Florida 63 - 22.3 seconds left. Henderson just turned the ball over when all he needed to do was hold onto it and get fouled. Now the Gators have a chance at a final shot and game-winner.
Sunday - 2:50 p.m. ET
Ole Miss 61, Florida 56 - 4:56 left. It's getting heated on both ends of the court here with a SEC championship on the line.
Henderson has 19 and Murphy Holloway has 20 for the Rebels, who are clinging to a slim lead.
Sunday - 2:35 p.m. ET
Ole Miss 52, Florida 46 - 11:07 left. The Rebels have taken their first lead of the game and their confidence is through the roof. Meanwhile, the Gators seemed to have fallen asleep offensively with Boynton out of the game.
Sunday - 2:25 p.m. ET
Florida 46, Ole Miss 45 - 12:29 left. The Rebels have completed the comeback, moving the ball well and Henderson is starting to find space offensively.
Kenny Boynton drew a hard foul on a drive, but spent a couple of minutes on the ground and appears to be unable to take his free throws. Rebels head coach Andy Kennedy gets to have his pick of Gators players to take them, since Boynton checked out, and he picks defensive forward Will Yeguete. He makes one of two.
Sunday - 2:14 p.m. ET
Florida 41, Ole Miss 36 - 16:40/2nd. The Rebels are cutting into their deficit after a Marshall Henderson three-pointer and an obligatory boasting party afterward.
By the way, he's shooting 25 percent.
Sunday - 1:50 p.m. ET
HALFTIME: Florida 38, Ole Miss 26. The Rebels just aren't finding offense anywhere except in the paint. The Gators, on the other hand, are moving the ball incredibly well. Kenny Boynton leads all scorers with 11 points, while Ole Miss' Murphy Holloway has 10 points on 5-for-6 shooting.
Henderson is just 1-for-6 in that first half, including a missed half-court heave at the buzzer.
The Gators have never trailed in today's championship game.
Florida stats of interest: 7-of-14 from three-point range. 12 bench points.
Ole Miss stats of interest: 2-of-9 from three-point range. 0-for-2 free throw shooting. Three blocks.
Sunday - 1:25 p.m. ET
Florida 18, Ole Miss 9 - 10:30/1st. Gators guard Michael Frazier III already has nine points (3-for-4 from long range) off the bench.
Erik Murphy, one of Florida's key players, just headed to the locker room but is back on the bench. Certainly a storyline worth following.
Sunday - 1:16 p.m. ET
Florida 12, Ole Miss 4 - 14:32/1st. The Gators are having success early from long range with two three-pointers already. Gators guard Mike Rosario has five quick points.
Meanwhile, Rebels flashy guard Marshall Henderson is 0-for-2. Scottie Wilbekin is doing a great job keeping the ball out of his hands in the early going.
Sunday - 1:07 p.m. ET
We're here live at the SEC championship match-up between Florida and Ole Miss. It should be a hard-fought matchup, with the Rebels still fighting to secure a NCAA bid, while the Gators are trying to improve their seeding.
Friday - 5:50 p.m. ET
Some postgame quotes from the Vols players and head coach Cuonzo Martin.
Martin: "Well-fought game by both teams. Both teams competed. We had some looks, we just didn't capitalize on them. With 10 turnovers against the press, I thought we did a good job handling the press, we just didn't make plays down the stretch."
Stokes: "They did a good job running the press and then getting back into the zone. Any time a team plays the zone, it's hard for the big man to score."
Richardson: "Part of (the offensive struggles) was us not hitting shots, but they did a good job of pressuring the ball the whole game. Shots were hard to come by."
Friday - 5:37 p.m. ET
There's still certainly a chance the Vols get in the tournament, but I wouldn't bet on it. Experts said all week that they needed two wins, and they got one. Not to mention, they looked pretty lifeless against a fellow bubble team that will undoubtedly get a bid above them. Shooting 24.1 percent in the second half in a must-win game that the selection committee is watching won't do you any favors.
I wouldn't be surprised for a second if the Vols got a bid, but if it were up to me, they just haven't done enough.
Friday - 5:26 p.m. ET
FINAL: Alabama 58, Tennessee 48. The Vols had their chances to cut into the lead late in the contest, but couldn't convert the big shots and Alabama put it away at the charity stripe.
McRae fouled out with just nine points, snapping his nine-game streak of scoring in double digits. The Vols will have to await Selection Sunday to find out if they made the Big Dance.
Friday - 5:16 p.m. ET
Alabama 52, Tennessee 46, 3:07 left. The Vols have pulled it closer, but the Tide are doing just enough to keep a two-possession lead over their opponent.
It's just not Jordan McRae's day. He's misfired on two straight threes since being re-inserted into the game.
Friday - 5:10 p.m. ET
Alabama 50, Tennessee 46: 5:27 left. Just when you think they're done, the Vols go on a little surge. Richardson nailed an and-one and with McRae back in the game, UT is threatening. Stokes is proving to be huge on the boards as well.
Friday - 5:03 p.m. ET
Alabama 50, Tennessee 41: 7:47 left. McRae now has four fouls, which is not what you want when you're trailing in a must-win game. The Vols have missed their last four field goals, and the Tide are on a 6-0 run.
I know it's scary to have your leading scorer on the verge of fouling out, but Martin must put McRae in the game. The Vols don't stand a chance at mounting this comeback without their star player.
Friday - 4:58 p.m. ET
Alabama 46, Tennessee 41. 9:48 remaining. It's getting heated in Bridgestone Arena. Both teams are playing like a NCAA Tournament berth is on the line (which is probably true).
Stokes is taking over in the post, ripping down boards at will in between a flurry of Alabama players. He now has eight points and nine rebounds.
But free-throw shooting is dooming the Vols down the stretch. Armani Moore just missed two straight, dropping the team's average to 4-for-10 (40 percent).
Friday - 4:51 p.m. ET
Alabama 44, Tennessee 41. 11:46 left.
Josh Richardson is contributing well for the Vols, with 11 points after that three-pointer, but mis-fired on a bad look just after on a heat-check. McRae has been struggling, but just hit a huge three to bring his team within three points.
Friday - 4:37 p.m. ET
Alabama 36, Tennessee 33: 16:33/2nd. The Vols didn't waste any time tying up the game with two Josh Richardson buckets, but this game remains tight as no team has led by more than four points all game.
After containing the full-court press all game, McRae just turned it over before crossing half-court. He then picks up his third foul. Not good for Tennessee.
Friday - 4:12 p.m. ET
HALFTIME: Alabama 31, Tennessee 27. After starting 7-for-10 from the field, the Vols only hit four of their next 17 and are now shooting 40.7 percent as a team.
Alabama's pesky guard Trevor Releford connected on a three-pointer to beat the halftime buzzer, to add to his 12 points heading into the locker room. Levi Randolph has also added seven points for the Tide.
Sharpshooter Skylar McBee missed his first three deep balls, but connected on one in the closing seconds to give his team a boost heading into the locker room. Jarnell Stokes has added six points in the paint for the Vols.
Friday - 3:51 p.m. ET
The Vols and Tide are tied at 20 with 6:53 left in the half. The Vols have cooled off considerably after their hot start, struggling to find anything, while the Tide are having success getting to the rim and finishing.
Friday - 3:34 p.m. ET
Tennessee 9, Alabama 8: 16:39/1st. Alabama opened up the game with a full-court press, which isn't a surprise due to UT's problem with turning the ball over. The Tide also have started out hot from deep, hitting their first two from behind the arc.
The Vols have been able to break the press and score some easy baskets early on.
Friday - 3:22 p.m. ET
We're just minutes from the Vols and Tide tipping off! Tennessee fans came out as the arena is covered in orange, but the Tide have their own representation as well.
Friday - 3:01 p.m. ET
FINAL: Florida 80, LSU 58. The Tigers shot just 33.3 percent from the field compared to Florida's 50.9. The Gators' 11 three-pointers and 47-27 rebounding edge were the biggest differences in the contest, as the top-seeded team cruised to an easy victory in the conference quarterfinal.
The Gators now get to kick their feet up and watch Tennessee and Alabama square off. The winner will be their opponent Saturday.
Friday - 2:45 p.m. ET
Florida 73, LSU 42: 5:35/2nd. LSU is shooting under 20 percent in the second half, which would have them trailing in likely any contest. Put that together with a match-up against the Florida Gators, and you have yourself a long night.
The Gators are cruising to a Saturday match-up with the winner of Tennessee and Alabama.
Friday - 2:23 p.m. ET
Florida 60, LSU 36: 12:33/2nd. O'Bryant III has picked up his fourth foul, which means things could get even uglier for LSU.
The Gators are knocking it down from long range, shooting better outside the arc (9-for-17) than they are from the charity stripe (5-for-11).
Friday - 2:07 p.m. ET
Florida 48, LSU 29: 18:43/2nd. LSU needs to get the deep ball going again (5-for-8 in first half) if there's any chance of getting back in this one.
Big man Johnny O'Bryant III just isn't getting it done, and Florida's Murphy is lighting it up from three.
Friday - 1:49 p.m. ET
HALFTIME: Florida 43, LSU 28. Gators guard Michael Frazier II hit a buzzer-beating three to put his team up 15 points at the break.
The Tigers are hanging in there, but are no match for the Gators defensively and the mis-matches on the court aren't a secret.
Friday - 1:42 p.m. ET
Florida 37, LSU 26: 2:08/1st. LSU's Charles Carmouche is keeping the Tigers in it with 12 points (3-for-3 from long range), but the Gators are having no trouble putting up points and keeping their lead at a distance.
Murphy leads the Gators with 15 points and nine rebounds.
Friday - 1:31 p.m. ET
The Gators lead 27-17 at the 6:30 mark of the opening half. LSU is shooting 4-for-7 from long range, but Florida is scoring at will in this high-scoring affair.
Friday - 1:17 p.m. ET
Florida 15, LSU 14: 11:38/1st. The tournament's top-seeded team is finally in action as Florida takes the floor, but LSU is hanging tough with them early on.
Florida's forward Erik Murphy has seven points and six rebounds in just the first eight minutes.
Friday - 12:17 a.m. ET
FINAL: Missouri 62, Texas A&M 50. The Tigers were just too much for the Aggies tonight. Texas A&M struggled offensively about as bad as they have all year, so that just doomed them from the start and it didn't help that they faced a NCAA-bound Tigers team.
Well, that's all from Thursday's day at the SEC Tournament! I hope you had a good time following along with me throughout the games and will tune in tomorrow for even better match-ups. Until then.
Thursday - 11:56 p.m. ET
Texas A&M is keeping it from getting too ugly, but that's about all they can do. Missouri is having an off game by their standards, but they still have done more than enough to put away this Aggies squad.
The Tigers lead 58-37 with about two minutes remaining.
Thursday - 11:29 p.m. ET
The Aggies just have no answer for Alex Oriakhi inside. The big man has freed up for four dunks now in the game, and Texas A&M cannot answer offensively. They trail 35-23 with 16:06 left in Thursday's final game.
Thursday - 11:05 p.m. ET
HALFTIME: Missouri 28, Texas A&M 19. That was a first half the Aggies would like to forget, as they shot less than 25 percent from the floor and only two players – Fabyon Harris and Elston Turner – converted field goals.
Thursday - 10:56 p.m. ET
Missouri let the Aggies climb back into it, but then went on an 8-0 run and now lead 26-16 with 3:50 left in the first half. Texas A&M's Elston Turner just hit a three to snap a seven-minute scoring drought.
Thursday - 10:36 p.m. ET
Early on in Thursday's final contest, the six-seed Missouri Tigers are up 14-8 on fellow SEC newbie Texas A&M. The Tigers are much better than their seed indicates with a NCAA bid secured, and should cruise to victory tonight as long as they don't lose focus.
Thursday - 9:53 p.m. ET
FINAL: Vanderbilt 75, Arkansas 72. The 'Dores nearly gave it up late after leading all game, but they kept the pesky Razorbacks at bay despite the lead dwindling down to two.
Odom led Vandy with 20 points, but shot just 3-for-11 from the charity stripe. Kyle Fuller added 19 points off the bench to help offset a combined 29 points from Hogs' B.J. Young and Marshawn Powell. The Commodores will face Kentucky Friday.
Coming up in Thursday's final game is a matchup between SEC newcomers Texas A&M and Missouri. The winner of that game will advance to the quarterfinal round against fourth-seed Ole Miss.
Thursday - 9:35 p.m. ET
The Razorbacks have cut the lead tremendously and now trail 70-64 with under two minutes left. There's still a fighter's chance for Arkansas.
Thursday - 8:58 p.m. ET
Arkansas has been hanging around, but the Commodores maintain a sizable 54-43 lead with 11:52 left in the contest. The main difference in Vanderbilt's play is their deep shooting, with 10 made treys compared to the Razorbacks' two.
Kentucky may not be playing until tomorrow, but its fanbase came out in numbers to scout this game, the winner of which will play their Wildcats Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Thursday - 8:28 p.m. ET
HALFTIME: Vanderbilt 38, Arkansas 30. Both teams are shooting 38 percent from the floor and are tied at 19 rebounds apiece, but the Commodores' fortune from behind the arc has been the difference thus far.
Thursday - 8:23 p.m. ET
The 'Dores have taken over offensively. A flurry of three-pointers (6-for-13 so far) and forward Rod Odom's 13 points have Vanderbilt up 37-30 with under a minute left in the first half.
Thursday - 7:48 p.m. ET
We're back from intermission and underway in our first of two night games. Vanderbilt and Arkansas are in a tight one early on, tied 9-9 with 13 minutes left in the first half.
Vanderbilt's hometown advantage isn't nearly that of Tennessee's earlier in the day, but it's certainly felt. That might not be the case Friday if they advance, as they'll face Kentucky's ever-popular Big Blue Nation.
Thursday - 5:36 p.m. ET
FINAL: Tennessee 69, Mississippi State 53. It wasn't a dominating performance from the Vols, but it was enough to notch an easy victory over the hapless Bulldogs.
McRae led all Vols with 17 points, and Golden added 15. Stokes finished with 10 points and nine rebounds, barely missing his 15th double-double of the season.
The Vols will play Friday at 3:30 p.m. ET against Alabama, who also sits on the NCAA Tournament bubble. A win for Tennessee, I believe, will clinch a spot in the Big Dance.
Thursday - 5:23 p.m. ET
It hasn't been a dominating performance from Tennessee by any means, but it'll be good enough to secure a victory over the 13th-seed Bulldogs. There just isn't enough talent on Mississippi State's end to mount a comeback. Tennessee leads 62-49 with 2:26 left.
Still, the Vols have a lot to shore up before their showdown with fourth-seed Alabama Friday.
Thursday - 5:06 p.m. ET
The Vols are putting on a show and getting help from everywhere. Redshirt freshman Quinton Chievous has notched a career-high 10 points, while Golden has seven of his 14 points in the second half.
Tennessee leads 57-43 (7:31 left).
Thursday - 4:51 p.m. ET
Mississippi State has heated up considerably in the second half, scoring on six of its first seven possessions. The Vols, meanwhile, are keeping them at bay.
Tennessee leads 46-32 with 14:07 left in the contest.
Thursday - 4:26 p.m. ET
HALFTIME: Tennessee 35, Mississippi State 19. The Bulldogs struggled to find the basket in the first half and turned the ball over 11 times. McRae leads the Vols with 10 points, while Golden has added seven.
Thursday - 4:15 p.m. ET
The Vols are sitting pretty right now, up 35-16 with 3:14 left in the half. McRae has 10 points to lead the Vols and Golden has added seven.
It doesn't look like Martin and company will have any problem sealing this one up, but we did see LSU squander a 23-point lead earlier in the day. Anything is possible, but the Bulldogs' six scholarship players in the arena don't look capable of pulling off such a comeback.
Thursday - 4:06 p.m. ET
The Bulldogs are having more success offensively, but Tennessee is keeping them at bay. The Vols lead 27-14 with 8:37 left in the first half.
It's just obvious that there's a huge talent gap between these two teams. It'll be a glaring disaster for Tennessee if they don't win this game by double digits.
Thursday - 3:55 p.m. ET
The Vols didn't take much time to jump out to an early lead. They're on top of the Bulldogs 16-7 with 13:34 left in the opening half. Trae Golden has five points after a Jarnell Stokes steal set up his lay-up.
Mississippi State guard Trivante Bloodman spent a couple of minutes on the floor after being knocked down from Golden's lay-up, but was able to make it to the bench under his own power.
Thursday - 3:46 p.m. ET
Mississippi State started out with a 4-0 lead, but six straight points from Jordan McRae and a McBee three has put the Vols ahead 12-4 with 16:03 left in the first half.
The Volunteer faithful have shown up to this day game and are making a lot of noise for their home-state Vols.
Thursday - 3:37 p.m. ET
Vols starters: Trae Golden, Jordan McRae, Josh Richardson, Armani Moore, Jarnell Stokes.
Bulldogs starters: Craig Sword, Fred Thomas, Trivante Bloodman, Gavin Ware, Colin Borchert
Thursday - 3:33 p.m. ET
We're just two minutes away from tipoff as the Vols come out of the tunnel. Tennessee is a 13.5-point favorite over Mississippi State. A win would set up a NCAA-bubble showdown with Alabama Friday, but a loss to the SEC's second-worst team would likely end UT's hopes of securing a NCAA bid.
Thursday - 3:14 p.m. ET
FINAL: LSU 68, Georgia 63. Georgia had a chance to tie up the game in a final possession, but Caldwell-Pope missed a deep three on a busted possession. LSU iced the game at the line with just seconds left, and the Tigers will move on to face Florida tomorrow.
The Vols are up next in a 3:30 p.m. matchup with Mississippi State.
Thursday - 3:07 p.m. ET
Caldwell-Pope has been Georgia's savior this second half with 32 points and 13 rebounds, but his Bulldogs trail 66-63 with 26.4 seconds left. Johnny O'Bryant III is at the line for the Tigers.
Thursday - 2:40 p.m. ET
Shavon Coleman from LSU and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope from Georgia are dueling to see who can take over this game. Coleman's 24 has the Tigers up 58-46 with 8:30 left in the game, but KCP's 26 points and nine rebounds are nothing to scoff at.
Whatever Fox told his Bulldogs in the locker room must have had an effect, as they've been a different team in this second half. But it's still the Tigers who hold a sizable lead heading into the final stretch.
Thursday - 2:26 p.m. ET
Caldwell-Pope is showing why he earned SEC Player of the Year honors. He's single-handedly bringing the Bulldogs back in this game with 21 points. They trail LSU 49-36 with 13:14 left.
Thursday - 2:16 p.m. ET
We have a Dave Hart sighting. I spotted the Tennessee athletic director near the locker room area at halftime of the Georgia-LSU game.
On the court it's a new half, but the same old story for Georgia. Other than Caldwell-Pope's 13 points, the Bulldogs can't get anything going. They trail the Tigers 49-28 with 15:59 left in the contest.
Thursday - 1:52 p.m. ET
That first half couldn't have gone any worse for the Georgia Bulldogs, as they trail LSU 39-19 heading into halftime. They're shooting 31.8 percent from the floor and have turned the ball over nine times.
On the other end, the Tigers have a 20-11 rebounding edge and are led by Coleman's 10 points. Guard Andre Stringer is also helping out the cause with eight points.
To say notoriously hot-headed Georgia head coach Mark Fox is laying into his team in the locker room right now would probably be a vast understatement.
Thursday - 1:38 p.m. ET
Nothing doing for Georgia in this first half, as they look sloppy on both sides of the floor. They're shooting just 37 percent and have turned the ball over seven times. LSU leads 29-15 with 5:15 left in the opening half.
Thursday - 1:24 p.m. ET
LSU has taken an early 21-11 lead over Georgia in Thursday's opener. The Tigers are knocking it down from deep, shooting 5-for-7 from three-point range.
LSU's Shavon Coleman already has eight points, including two three-pointers.
Thursday - 12:49 p.m. ET
SEC Player of the Year Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and his eight-seed Georgia Bulldogs are featured in Thursday's opening game against the nine-seed LSU Tigers. It's a sparse crowd so far in Bridgestone Arena, but that's sure to change when home-state teams Tennessee and Vanderbilt each play later today.
Georgia-LSU should be an exciting matchup, with both teams sporting a 9-9 conference record. The winner will face top-seed Florida Friday at 1 p.m. ET.
Thursday - 12:02 p.m. ET
I just arrived in Bridgestone Arena for Thursday's action in the 2013 SEC Men's Basketball Tournament. It'll be a long day of games, with four on the slate both today and tomorrow. Thursday's schedule is listed below, with the numbers representing each team's seed in the tournament.
1 p.m. ET - No. 9 LSU vs. No. 8 Georgia (winner plays No. 1 Florida)
3:30 p.m. ET - No. 13 Mississippi State vs. No. 5 Tennessee (winner plays No. 4 Alabama()
7:30 p.m. ET - No. 10 Vanderbilt vs. No. 7 Arkansas (winner plays No. 2 Kentucky)
10 p.m. ET - No. 11 Texas A&M vs. No. 6 Missouri (winner plays No. 3 Ole Miss)
