The SEC was anything but normal this season.

Two teams predicted to finish ninth and 13th before the season (Auburn and Tennessee) finished atop the conference. Top recruit Michael Porter Jr.  played just a couple minutes in his first game for Missouri, and hasn’t played since (back injury). And, to top it all off, St. Louis will host the SEC Tournament, marking the first time ever it won’t take place in the south.


When the tournament kicks off on Wednesday night (7 p.m. ET), I’ll be cheering for more chaos. No team seeded lower than third has won the conference since the SEC went to a 14-team format in 2013.  I’m betting on that changing.
