DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - Southeastern Conference basketball coaches are getting a lesson in scheduling analytics.
It could lead to more NCAA tournament berths.
On the heels of what SEC Commissioner Mike Slive called a ``bad year'' - defending national champion Kentucky missed the tournament while only Florida advanced past the first weekend - the league has hired former NCAA tournament guru Greg Shaheen as a scheduling consultant.
Shaheen gave detailed presentations to coaches and athletic directors during the league's annual spring meetings this week. And SEC schools agreed to send their non-conference schedules to the league office for evaluation and possibly renovation.
Slive says the league wants to play ``the kind of schedules that will position us to put the number of teams in the (NCAA) tournament that we have traditionally over the years.''
