2013 SEC Tournament Predictions

I feel like Nashville is one of those towns that I have to go to one of these days; I hear that it is a fun place. Anyways, that is where the 2013 SEC Tournament will be hosted for the first time since 2010 and should see a solid crowd. The Florida Gators are the favorite but could we see a Kentucky, Missouri, Ole Miss or somebody else make a run to claim the title? Here are my predictions.

1st Round - March 13
#12 South Carolina vs. #13 Mississippi State (SEC Network, 7:30)
Pick: South Carolina

#11 Texas A&M vs. #14 Auburn (SEC Network, 10:00)
Pick: Texas A&M

2nd Round - March 14
#8 Georgia vs. #9 LSU (SEC Network, 1:00)
Pick: LSU

#5 Tennessee vs. #12 South Carolina (SEC Network, 3:30)
Pick: Tennessee

#7 Arkansas vs. #10 Vanderbilt (SEC Network, 7:30)
Pick: Vanderbilt

#6 Missouri vs. #11 Texas A&M (SEC Network, 10:00)
Pick: Missouri

Quarterfinals - March 15
#1 Florida vs. #9 LSU (ESPNU, 1:00)
Pick: Florida

#4 Alabama vs. #5 Tennessee (ESPNU, 3:30)
Pick: Tennessee

#2 Kentucky vs. #10 Vanderbilt (SEC Network/ESPNU, 7:30)
Pick: Kentucky

#3 Ole Miss vs. #6 Missouri (SEC Network/ESPNU, 10:00)
Pick: Missouri

Semifinals - March 16
#1 Florida vs. #5 Tennessee (ABC, 1:00)
Florida is the strongest team in this tournament, but the only time these two teams came out on top, the Vols won.
Pick: Tennessee

#2 Kentucky vs. #6 Missouri (ABC, 3:30)
I must say, Kentucky has quite all right since Nerlens Noel's injury a month ago. However, that quality play will come to an end in the semifinals.
Pick: Missouri

Final - March 17
#5 Tennessee vs. #6 Missouri (ABC, 1:00)
I love the run the Volunteers have been on and it may have been enough for them to go dancing, but their inconsistent offense as compared to the high-powered Mizzou attack will swing the title to the Tigers.
Pick: Missouri
