Alabama was eliminated yesterday afternoon with the narrow loss to Florida, but the SEC Tournament continues on today with the semifinals to see who will advance to the Championship Game tomorrow afternoon.

The real headliner here starts at 12:00 Central and features Florida v. Kentucky. The winner figures to be the clear favorite tomorrow, and though John Calipari and company beat the Gators by fifteen last weekend in Gainesville, Florida nevertheless figures to have the best chance of anyone remaining to take out Kentucky. The Wildcats are undefeated in SEC play on the year, and taking home the SEC Tournament Championship would all but guarantee the #1 overall seed after both Syracuse and Kansas fell yesterday.

The evening game features Ole Miss v. Vanderbilt, where the Rebels are fresh off of a big win over Tennessee that likely did it's fair share to help the Tide. Ole Miss is still in NCAA Tournament contention, but probably needs at least a win today to effectively make its case. Vanderbilt should have a Tournament berth regardless, but a win today would certainly help improve their seeding, no small concern for a team that has been one-and-done for their last three NCAA Tournament appearances. Tip-off in this one is tentatively scheduled for 2:30 Central.

Chime in here with all of your thoughts and comments on the action.
