Southeastern Conference basketball is not the same as SEC football. The basketball teams do not routinely compete for national championships.
But just because the conference doesn’t have every single one of their basketball teams clamoring for postseason bids does not mean that there aren’t still some pretty good coaches hanging around.
Many of the teams in the SEC have become identified by a scrappy, quick, have-no-fear kind of attitude. Those teams can be dangerous come tournament time.
Some of the very best SEC coaches are granted endless supplies of 5-star recruits with all the talent in the world.
However, others make a living by molding decent players into winners. Coaches at lower-profile schools must work with what they are given. Some coaches are simply better at that task than others.
