SEC Basketball Power Rankings: Missouri falls, Florida rises

·2 min read

We are officially underway.

The 2021-22 college basketball season has officially begun. There haven’t been any incredible surprises so far, but rather overall the teams that are expected to compete have looked good early, and the ones that aren’t expected to compete have played like they don’t in fact want to.

Eight teams are still undefeated, with South Carolina, Missouri, Georgia, and Kentucky all taking losses over the course of week one. the fact that Texas A&M is 3-0 might be the only legitimate surprise the conference has had in this early season.

Here are the SEC power rankings after one week of basketball action.
