The SEC had quite a performance in the NCAA Tournament on Thursday.

While the Pac-12 lost its final representative when Arizona was shocked by Buffalo, the SEC went undefeated. The conference's 4-0 mark tied its best single-day performance in the tournament.

Kentucky beat Davidson, Alabama topped Virginia Tech, Florida beat St. Bonaventure and Tennessee throttled Wright State. Not a bad day.

On Friday, Auburn, Missouri, Texas A&M and Arkansas will play. We'll see how those four teams fare.

As of now, the SEC has put on the best performance of any of the Power-5 leagues. It is still early though.

The madness continues tomorrow at noon.
