Georgia still has a path to a double-bye in the SEC Tournament

The day after losing a nail-biter at home to Kentucky, Georgia received a little help in the SEC standings from Tennessee.  On Wednesday, the Vols stormed into Baton Rouge and upset the LSU Tigers 78-63, putting LSU in a tie with UGA at 10-7 and leaving the door slightly open for the Dawgs to snag one of the top four spots in the conference standings.

Here’s what has to happen on Saturday:

1. First and foremost, Georgia needs to avenge a home loss to Auburn on the Plains, which would boost Coach Fox’s team’s final SEC record to 11-7.

2. LSU finishes its conference slate at Arkansas, a game that the Tigers could easily drop.

3. The most difficult part of this equation is that Texas A&M must lose a home game to Alabama.  However, the Tide whipped the Aggies by 21 points earlier in the season, so the home team in this one is certainly not assured of win.

Ole Miss ends its year with a home game against Vandy, so more than likely the Rebels will finish up 12-6, giving them one of the top spots in the conference tournament.
