The top two seeds in the 2012 SEC tournament are already on the ropes. Both LSU and South Carolina fell in their opening games and now they'll have to win out for a chance to play for the title.

Both Arkansas and Georgia were eliminated from play yesterday, Florida and Kentucky were idle, and Vanderbilt and Mississippi State continued their winning ways.

Things are already off and running today as LSU staved off elimination and sent Mississippi home in the process.

There are still three games to be played today.

Predictions for the Day

There's no sense in predicting a game that is already over, but we'll say this much for the LSU Tigers: They won the regular season conference title for the first time since 2009, they've won this tournament three times in the last four years (last year being the exception) and they know what it takes to win. Even with one loss to their name, they're still the favorite.

The Gamecocks should straighten things out today after a disappointing loss to Vanderbilt yesterday. The Auburn team they play is the lowest ranked team it the tournament and got here by knocking off Georgia. The Tigers lost to Florida on Day 1, so a loss to South Carolina will end their tourney run.

In the battle of unbeatens, Kentucky holds the edge over Mississippi State, and Florida the edge over Vandy.

The Bulldogs are on a roll, though, and it wouldn't be surprising at all if they found a way to hand the Wildcats their first loss.

Same goes for Vandy, but the two straight days of play could factor in against them here.
