The 2018 SEC men's basketball tournament will be played at Scottrade Center in St. Louis from March 8-12.
With Kentucky no longer the conference's runaway favorite, the SEC Tournament is open for the taking. Bryce Brown and Mustapha Heron have helped Auburn become a top-10 squad this season, and Tennessee has played its way back into the national spotlight. Texas A&M, while not having the most stellar conference record, is still a top-25 team. The SEC Tournament champion will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
The SEC Tournament will feature a number of NBA prospects, including Collin Sexton from Alabama, Kevin Knox from Kentucky and possibly Michael Porter Jr. from Missouri. Also included are big men Daniel Gafford from Arkansas, Robert Williams from Texas A&M and Hamidou Diallo from Kentucky.
