SEC Basketball standings entering week of Jan. 17

Last Saturday’s SEC weekend slate did not feature many must-see matchups. However, that did not stop chaos from ensuing.

Two of the SEC’s top teams, Alabama and Texas A&M enjoyed blowout wins. The Crimson Tide hosed LSU, 106-66 behind a great performance from freshman Brandon Miller, who scored 31 points and pulled down nine rebounds.

Texas A&M traveled to South Carolina and blew out the Gamecocks, 94-53. The Aggies set the tone of the game early by taking a 50-18 lead into halftime.

In addition to two dominant performances, there were two upsets on the weekend as well. A substandard Kentucky squad bounced back from an embarrassing loss to South Carolina last Tuesday by knocking off then-No. 5 Tennessee in Knoxville, 63-56.

Also, within the state of Tennessee, Vanderbilt surprised visiting Arkansas by scoring 63 second-half points to beat the Razorbacks, 97-84 in Nashville.
