This weekend’s SEC basketball slate featured several surprising results despite not featuring any ranked-vs-ranked matchups.
The SEC weekend kicked off in Knoxville with No. 5 Tennessee hosting a struggling Kentucky squad who recently dropped a home loss to South Carolina. Behind Oscar Tshiebwe’s double-double, Kentucky was able to snap a two-game losing streak by upsetting the Volunteers, 63-56.
Conference woes continued for No. 15 Arkansas, as they dropped their third straight game on Saturday. The Razorbacks allowed Vanderbilt to score 63 second-half points en route to a 97-84 loss to the Commodores in Nashville.
Following a surprising win over Kentucky on Tuesday, South Carolina returned to Columbia in hopes to unleash their newfound confidence on an improved Texas A&M team. However, the game proved to be a hangover from such a thrilling win, as the Gamecocks fell to Texas A&M, 94-53. The Aggies led the Gamecocks 50-18 at halftime.
