Kentucky Tops SEC Basketball Rankings For January 26

The ACC and SEC BlogSenior Analyst IJanuary 27, 2009

Another week of basketball begins in the SEC and we have our first coach resignation (or firing) of the season in Alabama's Mark Gottfried. The former Crimson Tide coach and player had been under fire all season including a most recent episode with star Ronald Steele leaving the team. Other than that we had South Carolina's last second win over Florida and Kentucky staying undefeated in conference play last week.

Most Impressive Team Last Week
Kentucky

Least Impressive Team Last Week
Arkansas

Coach on the Hot Seat
Dennis Felton, Georgia

NCAA Tournament Teams - four
Kentucky, Florida, Tennessee, LSU

1. Kentucky
Undefeated and really untested in SEC play so far

2. Florida
Gators bounce back nicely by blowing out Vandy in Nashville

3. LSU
Tigers go 1-1 on the week and suffer their first home loss to ranked Xavier

4. Tennessee
The Vols look to be struggling but you have to remember the schedule they have played

5. Miss State
Bulldogs are quietly 4-1 in SEC play

6. South Carolina
Gamecocks follow up big win over Florida with a win over Ole Miss

7. Auburn

8. Alabama

9. Ole Miss

10. Vanderbilt

11. Arkansas
How in the world do you beat Oklahoma and Texas and then can't win a conference game, including a blow out at home to Auburn?

12. Vacated

13. Georgia
What are the odds on Dennis Felton returning to Athens next year? Bulldogs are so bad they don't even deserve a No. 12 ranking just like their in state rival Georgia Tech.

1. Duke
2. Wake Forest
3. North Carolina
4. Kentucky
5. Florida
6. Virginia Tech
