Get ready for premier college basketball rivalries on display at the Georgia Dome! The 2014 Southeastern Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament returns to the Georgia Dome for the 10th time in conference history from March 12 – 16. The single-elimination tournament features all 14-member institutions vying for the conference championship and automatic qualification into the NCAA Tournament with seeding based on regular season records.
The SEC conference has become stronger in recent years after league expansion with the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M. Sure, the league is still known as a football juggernaut, but the Southeastern Conference boasts one of the longest-running men’s basketball tournaments in the country and boasts 11 National Championships. There’s no clear-cut favorite in the SEC this season, so any team could make it all the way through the tournament in Atlanta. Last year, an improbable Ole Miss team beat a highly ranked Florida team for the championship. Will traditional powers like Kentucky, Missouri and Florida take the crown or will a surprise team make a statement? There’s only one way to find out. Be at the Georgia Dome on March 16 for the Finals.
