Although the SEC isn't outstanding as a whole this year, the teams at the top of the conference all have potential to make a deep run in the tournament.
No. 1 Kentucky has been nearly perfect this season and has maintained the top spot in the country for the third week in a row.
The No. 7 Florida Gators have been on a tear lately, having won their past seven games.
Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and Arkansas all have competitive squads as well and have proven to show they belong amongst the SEC's best.
With both divisions combined this year and SEC play already half-over, the top of the conference is beginning to take shape.
This is how the top teams of the SEC rank.
