Tennessee clinches the No. 2 seed in the SEC Tournament

Auburn clinches the one seed.

NCAA Basketball: Florida at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Volunteers will be the No. 2 seed in next week’s SEC Tournament in St. Louis. Auburn clinched the No. 1 see with a 79-70 win over South Carolina today. They also clinched a share of the SEC regular season title in the process.

Tennessee can take a share of the title tonight with a win over the Georgia Bulldogs, but they’re already locked into the No. 2 seed. Auburn’s head to head win back in January clinched that for the Tigers.

Tennessee will play on Friday night at 7 PM eastern against the winner of the 7-10 matchup. That 7-10 game remains to be determined, but LSU, Mississippi State and Missouri are all in that mix.

We’ll update the full picture after all of the action tonight.

UPDATE: Tennessee captured a share of the SEC title with a win tonight over Georgia. That didn’t matter in terms of seeding, however.

Tennessee will play the winner of LSU (10) and Mississippi State (7) on Friday night at 7 PM Eastern.
