After splitting the regular season title in the SEC, Kentucky and Texas A&M both reached the league's tournament final - setting up what seemed like an all-important showdown regarding NCAA Tournament seeding. Well, that's what we thought.
The Wildcats knocked off the Aggies Sunday, taking home the trophy. But somehow, when the brackets were unveiled just hours later, Texas A&M was given a 3-seed, while UK landed on the 4-line. John Calipari, per usual, went off.It turns out some of the ESPN guys agree with him.
College basketball analyst Jay Williams went as far as to say that Kentucky got "hosed" by the committee.
">@KentuckyMBB got hosed. No way #BBN wins their conf tourney & share of the regular season & get a 4 seed while Texas A&M gets a 3 seed.

It's hard to disagree here. Most thought that at worst, Kentucky would get a 3-seed, and at best, a 2-seed. The NCAA Tournament selection committee continues to baffle everyone, year after year.
