SEC Feast Week Preview

All of the conference’s basketball during the holidays!

NCAA Basketball: Xavier at Auburn Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

College football isn’t the only headliner during Thanksgiving Week. No it’s Feast Week for college basketball and if you need a reprieve from football here’s all the action happening in the conference.

Teams Already Completed Their Early Season Tournaments

Alabama: Went 2-1 in the Charleston Classic, capped off by a win over Wichita State

Arkansas: The Armed Forces classic was the Hogs Neutral site game, although the Indiana game and the next two are technically part of the “Hardwood Showcase.” The non-neutral site tournaments and their rules and qualifications get tricky. So “Tournament games” from here out are being designated as neutral site for simplicity’s sake.

Kentucky: The Champions Classic ended in a big time loss to Duke and their Monstar group of freshmen.

South Carolina: Lost the opener in the Air Force Reserve Games to Providence but then blasted George Washington

Vanderbilt: They’re playing in Hoophall Miami later in the year against NC State.
