SEC men’s basketball standings entering back half of the season

We’re already almost a week into the month of February, and the college basketball season is very quickly grinding toward a conclusion.

SEC teams are already in the back half of conference play, and the league has been one of the strongest in the entire country this season with two teams — Alabama and Tennessee — currently ranking in the top five.

After starting the year 12-1, LSU has struggled since league play began and has lost 10 straight games. The Tigers are no longer much of a factor in the NCAA Tournament conversation and even less so in the race for a regular season SEC title.

Still, there’s time to turn it around and end the season with some momentum in the final eight games. With that in mind, here’s how things stand in the conference.
