The 2018 NCAA Tournament is only a day-plus old, but it already seems to belong to one conference.

The SEC.

The Southeastern Conference is dominating the 68-team tournament so far. It's undefeated.

The SEC sent 8 teams to the Big Dance this year. So far, none of them have lost.

The league went a perfect 4-0 on Thursday, with Kentucky, Alabama, Florida and Tennessee all winning. The SEC moved to 5-0 earlier this afternoon.

Texas A&M, the first SEC team to play on Friday, got past No. 10 seed Providence. A second round matchup against (probably) North Carolina awaits.

The SEC is perfect.

Three SEC teams will play later today.

Arkansas is set to take on Butler, Auburn will play Charleston and Missouri will play Florida State.

Can the league go 8-0 in Round 1? Stay tuned.
