SEC BASKETBALL WINDS DOWN WITH AN ACTION PACKED NIGHT

As regular season winds down, it was an SEC action-packed night out on the hardwood last night. Teams are looking to get their last wins to secure a spot in the NCAA tournament.

Texas A&M vs Georgia

It was a close call for the Aggies who took a 61-60 win last night against the Bulldogs.

Robert Williams, a key player for the Aggies and projected NBA lottery pick, fouled out at 2:28 left and walked off with only three points. Against Vanderbilt, Williams packed in only two more than that.

Meanwhile, Tyler Davis stayed on Yante Maten, finishing with seven rebounds. He was also able to rack up 13 points. The Aggies were able to benefit from the lack of structure in the Bulldog’s defensive end.

The Bulldogs led by four with 2:28 remaining but missed their last five shots from the field and went cold after.

Georgia ranks dead last in the SEC in scoring, averaging 69.2 points.

Last one best one?

The Aggies have now locked in two back-to-back road wins. Texas A&M will be back home to host the Alabama Crimson Tide this Saturday, for the last home game of the season. Back on December 30, the Aggies fell to the Crimson Tide by 22 points.

On the other hand, Georgia hits the road to face No. 16 Tennessee. The Bulldogs will be looking to snap the Volunteers three-game winning streak.

LSU vs South Carolina

South Carolina took a hard fought win last night against LSU. The Gamecocks beat the Tigers in an overtime 83-74 win, making the night all that more special on Senior night.

With the Gamecocks leading 62-47 with 8:08 to go, the Tigers went on a 25-10 run. Tremont Waters hit a 3 that sent the game into overtime.

Overtime buzz kill for the Tigers

South Carolina came out aggressive, scoring the first 9. LSU had two blocked two turnovers and two missed free-throws.

Now the Gamecocks travel to No. 14 Auburn and LSU finish off hosting Mississippi State this Saturday.

Ole Miss vs Kentucky

Ole Miss got shut down by No. 23 Kentucky last night in Kentucky’s last home game of the season. The Wildcats beat the Rebels 96-78.

Foul packed night

The Rebel’s forward Marcanvis Hymon was ejected from the game just 3:24 in, after drawing two quick technical fouls. Hymon was caught taunting Wildcats Wenyen Gabriel when he received his first and just minutes later came the second one when he pushed Kentucky’s Nick Richards directly into one of his teammates. Richard’s didn’t hold back and answered back.

Double-technical were assessed and that was the last action Hymon had out on the hardwood for the night.

Double Figures of the night

Five Wildcats finished the game in double figures last night. Kevin Knox led with 22 points and 4 rebounds, Quade Green had 18 points and 4 assists, while PJ Washington had 10 points and 5 rebounds. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had was key on the offensive end as well with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists and Wenyen Gabriel had 15 points and 5 rebounds.

Kentucky was efficient from all-around, shooting 50% from the field, 44% from downtown and 75% from the line.

Terence Davis, for the Rebels, led with 26 points.

Wildcats hit the Swamp next

The Wildcats hit the road to face Florida, for both teams regular season finale. In January, Kentucky lost 66-64 at home against Florida.

Florida had to key wins in the past week, against No. 12 Auburn and Alabama. The Gators are now 19-11. The results of this game are key for the Wildcats, a win will lock them in to finish top-4  in the SEC.
