Several conferences are having a March Madness to forget, and the SEC has become one of them. The league sent six teams to the NCAA Tournament, but only one is still standing after the first weekend of action.
The Auburn Tigers are one of the five that did not survive, losing to Miami in the Round of 32. After the game, Tigers coach Bruce Pearl excused his team’s performance, along with the rest of the SEC. He suggested that the league’s regular season was so tough, all the tournament entrants were too drained to make a deep postseason run.
