Despite upset loss to Georgia, Florida secures SEC Tournament bye



No. 11 Florida's 76-62 upset loss at Georgia on Saturday may be an indication of some pressing problems for the Gators as they near the end of the final season, but it didn't hamper their chances for a bye in the SEC Tournament.

The league office confirmed late Saturday night that Florida has earned a bye in the SEC Tournament. In all remaining tiebreaker scenarios, Florida would be seeded no worse than 4th. The top four teams in the league earn a first-round bye in the tournament.

Florida (22-7, 10-4 SEC) will travel to play at Vanderbilt on Tuesday, then close out the regular season at home against Kentucky on March 4.
