SEC Tournament bracket: Full TV schedule, scores, results for 2023 basketball tournament


Related stories


The 2023 SEC Tournament will draw considerable attention ahead of March Madness this season, and not entirely because of the conference’s selection of NCAA Tournament-caliber teams.

The SEC has eight teams projected to compete in March Madness this season, per The Sporting News’ latest predictions; but the focus likely will center on regular-season champion and potential No. 1 seed Alabama. The Crimson Tide boast one of the more impressive resumes in college basketball, earning byes in the first two rounds of the SEC Tournament.

But the Crimson Tide’s basketball team has been clouded by off-court controversies, with potential lottery pick Brandon Miller found to be involved in the mid-January shooting death of Jamea Jonae Harris. He has not been charged with a crime or otherwise punished by coach Nate Oats.

Alabama, Miller and Oats likely will be the center of attention in the SEC Tournament, but other storylines to watch include defending SEC Tournament champion Tennessee, which will look to repeat as champions as the 5-seed this year. Kentucky has also enjoyed a significant turnaround since a slow start to the 2022-23 campaign, while a dangerous Arkansas team will hope to cement its status as an NCAA Tournament team.
