Final rankings of the regular season!

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

1. Kentucky Wildcats 23-8 (13-5), RPI 13, LW: 1

Kentucky has to feel pathetic sharing a basketball title with A&M.

2. Texas A&M Aggies 24-7 (13-5), RPI 22, LW: 2

How crappy is SEC basketball that A&M spent all those years in the Big 12 and never won a regular season title? Sure the Big 12 has Kansas, but the Aggies weren't a powerhouse in the SWC either.

3. South Carolina Gamecocks 23-7 (11-7), RPI 46, LW: 3

With traditional powers like Texas A&M and South Carolina back at the top of the league, the future of #SECBasketballFever is bright.

4. Vanderbilt Commodores 19-12 (11-7), RPI 47, LW: 5

They won eight of their last 12 games to finish on the bubble for the big dance.

5. Florida Gators 18-13 (9-9), RPI 51, LW: 4

They did the almost the opposite of Vandy by losing seven of their last 12.

6. Ole Miss Rebels 20-11 (10-8), RPI 85, LW: 7

Another 20 win season for Andy Kennedy, but yet still finding a way to not make the NCAA Tournament.

7. Georgia Bulldogs 17-12 (10-8), RPI 71, LW: 8

Will Mark Fox be around for year eight, after only making the NCAA Tournament twice?

8. LSU Tigers 18-13 (11-7), RPI 91, LW: 9

They have the type of resume that would get them elected President of the United States.

9. Alabama Crimson Tide 17-13 (8-10), RPI 70, LW: 6

We thought they could make the tournament with a strong finish and then they lost four of their final five.

10. Arkansas Razorbacks 16-15 (9-9), RPI 117, LW: 10

The Hogs looked primed for a potential NIT run and then they got blown out by 15 on senior day.

11. Mississippi State Bulldogs 14-16 (7-11), RPI 145, LW: 12

I would vote Ben Howland SEC Coach of the second half of conference season.

12. Tennessee Volunteers 13-18 (6-12), RPI 151, LW: 11

It's sad that Kevin Punter won't get a shot at postseason play this year.

13. Auburn Tigers 11-19 (5-13), RPI 158, LW: 13

It's really hard to believe that they beat Kentucky earlier this year.

14. Missouri Tigers 10-21 (3-15), RPI 217, LW: 14
