If there is a rivalry that everyone in the SEC looks forward to each year, it is Kentucky-Florida. These two are the only real consistent threats each year to battle for an SEC championship trophy. Granted, Florida did have a down year last year in Mike White’s first go-around, but he has gotten Florida basketball back on track with their No. 24 ranking. Since John Calipari left Memphis to walk the sidelines of Rupp Arena, Florida and Kentucky have combined to make nine combined SEC tournament appearances. Since 1994, the SEC has won six national championship trophies.

This was supposed to be a week for the Big 12 to show that they are one of the best conferences in the nation, facing the weaker SEC in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Unfortunately, the conference only won half of their games in the challenge, taking five with the SEC taking the other five. The top of the conference took care of business as Baylor, Kansas, and West Virginia all took care of their SEC foes.
