Is Missouri the best team in the SEC? The Tigers spent this week beating Kentucky and an Alabama team that was previously undefeated in conference play. Mizzou is now 13-3 overall and 6-3 in SEC action. That may not result in a regular season conference title since the Crimson Tide are 10-1, but the Tigers could end up as the highest seeded team come tournament time thanks to non-conference wins against Oregon and Illinois. There are not many easy games in the SEC this year, but Missouri’s toughest games are behind them and this team should be able to cruise into March.
