(CANCELLED) SEC Men's Basketball

Presented by Nashville Sports Council and Bridgestone Arena at Bridgestone Arena, Nashville TN

Mar 11 - 15 2020
(CANCELLED) SEC Men's Basketball

The 2020 Southeastern Conference (SEC) Men’s Basketball Tournament returns to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for the ninth time since 2001. It was announced in November 2018 that the SEC extended its agreement with the Nashville Sports Council that could make Music City the home of the SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament through 2035. Under the terms of the new agreement, the tournament will be played in Nashville through 2030, with the exception of 2022, with an option to extend the agreement through 2035. The winner of the 13-game tournament receives the SEC’s automatic bid.

The event has helped set the stage for SEC teams in the NCAA Tournament, as 26 of the tournament champions since the tournament resumed in 1979 have advanced to at least the Sweet 16. Three of the last 13 SEC Tournament champions have gone on to win the national championship. Since the renewal in 1979, the SEC Tournament Champion has failed to win at least one NCAA Tournament game only four times.

Kentucky leads the league with 31 SEC Tournament titles. Alabama is second with six, while Tennessee and Florida are tied for third with four. Mississippi State has three championship trophies while Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt have two. Arkansas, LSU have each won one SEC Tournament championship.
