How to Watch The SEC Tournament


It’s the most exciting time of the year on the college basketball calendar with conference tournaments kicking off Monday and leading into the NCAA Tournament. Teams will compete for a chance at an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. In this post, we’ll show you how to watch the SEC tournament and provide the game-by-game schedule.

Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee will be the home of this year’s men’s SEC Tournament. Each of the 14 teams in the conference will participate in the SEC Tournament. They will be seeded according to conference records with tiebreakers set in place already if teams finish with identical records.

The Tennessee Volunteers won last year’s tournament over the Texas A&M Aggies who made a Cinderella run only to fall in the final just short of the automatic NCAA Tournament bid. Texas A&M and Tennessee will both be among the top favorites to win this year’s event along with top-seeded Alabama.
