Kentucky claimed its 30th SEC Tournament Championship with a 82-65 win over Arkansas on Sunday.

"It's tough to lose a game like that - we fought hard, we felt like we put ourselves in a position to be successful", Collins said. "I absolutely love them and they poured their hearts out", Alabama coach Avery Johnson said. For Kentucky, Bam Adebayo is coming off a double-double (13 points, 10 boards) against Georgia and had a 14 points, seven rebound game against Alabama earlier. 2016 SEC Sixth Man of the Year Duane Notice played 31 minutes and scored zero points for SC, while Alabama got a game-high 18 points from Braxton Key.
"It was great", Monk said of his 20-point performance. It plays third-seeded Arkansas at noon. It's now back to back years that the Gamecocks have been one-and-done in the SEC tournament.
Although Adebayo, Monk and Fox provided a bulk of the scoring, it was Kentucky's senior trio of Dominique Hawkins, Derek Willis and Mychal Mulder that provided some big moments in the finale, especially during the first half. It's looking like they'll be a No. 2 seed in the 2017 Tournament, and that will have to do for coach John Calipari's bunch.
In what has been a down year for the SEC, Arkansas is one of the best teams in the conference. Missouri eventually won the battle of the Tigers, 86-83, but not before sending the game to overtime and hitting a buzzer-beater in the extra period.

But one loss in no way diminishes what they were able to do down the stretch of the season, beating Florida three times, toppling SC, blowing out this same Arkansas team in Fayetteville, and beating an Iowa State team that won the Big 12 Tournament Saturday night. "We're just playing to prove a point to people".
Ultimately, Kentucky's goal with its young teams is to be peaking as March Madness begins, and that's exactly what this year's Wildcats are doing. Kentucky was able to score 27 points from the free throw line as the Tide was forced to foul in the final minutes.
"We're hot and they're playing good, too". "We feel that people not talking about us is motivation".
"We tried to corral him in transition", Fox said. "Every time he steps up, we own the paint, and that's what we need tomorrow".
