MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Teams in the struggling Southeastern Conference are bracing for potential Marginal Madness in March.
With only one team ranked in the Top 25, the No. 5 Florida Gators, the SEC could have three or fewer teams in the NCAA tournament for only the second time in 23 years.
There's solid cases at Missouri and Mississippi, uncertainty at Kentucky and glimmers of hope at Alabama , Arkansas and Tennessee but nobody other than Florida is considered a lock.
Volunteers guard Jordan McRae describes the league's status as fun, but he may be the only one.
The SEC sent only three teams to the tournament in 2009 and that hadn't happened since 1990. The biggest question involves Kentucky - its tournament stock was uncertain even before losing Nerlens Noel for the season.
