ATLANTA (AP) - As soon as the regular season was over, Mark Fox
spent some time going over his bracket. The Georgia coach isn't the
only one.

Alabama and Tennessee also come into the Southeastern Conference tournament looking to bolster their NCAA hopes. Not to confuse sports, but the next four days at the Georgia Dome could probably be called the Bubble Bowl.

Only three SEC teams seem assured of NCAA bids, no matter what
they do in Atlanta: No. 12 Florida, No. 15 Kentucky and Vanderbilt.

Beyond that, it's all guesswork. Tennessee and Georgia have
solid RPI rankings, but not high enough to feel totally comfortable. Alabama won the SEC West with a gaudy 12-4 mark, but the Crimson Tide has a dismal RPI and some ugly losses early in the year.
