Nearly seven months after Kentucky cut down the nets last October, SEC teams will start their 2012-13 basketball campaigns this week.

The league has a fair amount of intrigue this year, as Missouri and Texas A&M will play their first seasons in the SEC and transitioning teams such as Arkansas and Tennessee look to ascend to the league's elite. Missouri and Florida look like legitimate challengers to Kentucky's supremacy.

Potential is abundant throughout the SEC, but the league's hierarchy has not changed much over the last five to seven years. Newcomers and upstarts alike will have to prove they can contend with the established conference elite.

Note: I will update these power rankings each week throughout the 2012-13 season.
