SEC Basketball Power Poll Ballot - Post Week 3 (through January 22nd, 2012)

New, 15 comments
Anchor of Gold Ballot /// Results at Garnet and Black Attack on Tuesday-ish

Since the table doesn't fit on the main page, here are the rankings with commentary. The full table after the jump.

  1. Kentucky Wildcats - Another week of SEC basketball, another week of Kentucky ranked first in the league.
  2. Florida Gators - Can put a firm hold on second with a win over State this weekend.
  3. Mississippi St. Bulldogs - Can takeover second with a win over Florida this weekend.
  4. Vanderbilt Commodores - Vanderbilt’s three point field goal defense was pretty solid, until Jalen Steele and his 37% season 3 point field goal percentage tore a hole through the Commodores first half lead Saturday.
  5. Alabama Crimson Tide - Bama’s game versus Vandy was probably an aberration. Their effort against Kentucky was much more in line with what we should expect from them.
  6. Arkansas Razorbacks - A great non-conference win over Michigan.
  7. Tennessee Volunteers - So what if UConn was missing a significant piece. A Top-15 win is a Top-15 win.
  8. Mississippi Rebels - Two big wins last week. Another opportunity to prove themselves without Dundrecous.
  9. LSU Tigers - LSU flips spots with Mississippi.
  10. Auburn Tigers - Tough overtime loss to LSU.
  11. Georgia Bulldogs - Huge overtime win over UT.
  12. South Carolina Gamecocks - Double-digit loss to Auburn. Not sure if Darrin Horn is going to get this turned around in time. Will Gamecock fans be patient?
