With three games left in the SEC regular-season schedule, here’s a look at where Florida stands.
The first-place Gators currently hold a one-game lead over Kentucky and Alabama and play both of those teams down the stretch. The Crimson Tide visits UF on Saturday (12 p.m., ESPN), then Vanderbilt comes to town, then the Gators go to Kentucky.
Florida can clinch a top-four seed in the conference tournament by winning any of those final games. It can claim a share of the SEC regular-season title by winning two of them (there are no tie-breakers for the conference championship).
Here are the current standings:
As for the top overall seed in the tournament, four teams remain in the hunt: Florida, Kentucky, Alabama and Ole Miss. For Missouri and Tennessee, their best-case scenario in the final three games would still result in them losing a tie-breaker.
