The 2009-10 SEC regular-season has come to an end, and it's been a surprisingly predictable one for the most part.
The league has rebounded from a weak 2008-09 season, and seems poised to push at least four, and as many as six, teams into the Big Dance.
Three teams stand ranked as the SEC Tournament begins. Second-ranked Kentucky has lost just two games, the Volunteers of Tennessee stands 13th and an underrated Vanderbilt squad is ranked 20th.
The Eastern division has once again asserted its dominance this season, as the division's top four squads have a perfect 24-0 record against the West.
Mississippi State and Ole Miss predictably lead the West, though Arkansas surprised many by making a push for the division.
Georgia was the noteable performance this season, as Fox has turned around the program in Athens despite the Bulldogs' 13-16 overall record. UGA has taken down three ranked teams and boasts an RPI in the Top 100.
