Florida continues to be the class of the SEC, as they remain unbeaten in conference play. The Gators have torn through every league opponent they’ve faced so far and appear to be a legitimate contender for the national title.

Kentucky found itself this week, and it appears John Calipari’s squad could make a run in the coming weeks.

Ole Miss started the week undefeated, but two consecutive losses and key injuries leave the Rebels searching for stability as they hope to break through and receive a bid to the NCAA Tournament come March.

The Crimson Tide of Alabama had two close calls this week, but they continue their success as they sit near the top of the conference.

Missouri is finally playing at full strength again with the returning of Laurence Bowers to the Tigers’ lineup. Look for Frank Haith’s team to get going here pretty soon.

Let’s take a look at the previous week:
