The SEC men's tournament in Nashville tips off a week from today.  The good news is UGA will definitely not play until at least Thursday. The possibility of a double bye to Friday is still on the table.

Looking at the tiebreakers, UGA can finish has high as third (with a win over Auburn, and losses by A&M, Ole Miss, plus two by LSU). UGA can finish as low as sixth. Since LSU holds the tie breaker over the Dawgs, we need them to loose both of their remaining games (vs. Tenn tonight and at Arkansas Saturday), AND have either A&M or Ole Miss lose one to get to at least fourth place and the double bye.
