Everyone knows and respects the powerhouses that Billy Donovan and John Calipari have built at Florida and Kentucky, respectively. Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Missouri, and other SEC schools have also had their moments. However, when lining up the best power conferences in basketball, the SEC is often regarded as one of the weaker leagues in Division I. South Carolina's Frank Martin has coached in the league for two seasons, and with his record at 28-38 with the Gamecocks, he certainly has a different view of the SEC.
