We are almost in February.

It’s almost sad to think about the fact that college basketball season is over halfway done, but at the same time, the best basketball has yet to come. Inter-conference races are getting tighter, and the SEC is no exception. Auburn has a grip on the conference right now, but after seeing the way the Tigers played against Missouri, a couple of losses could open the door for a bloodbath at the top of the standings.

Here are the week 14 Hoop Scoop Media SEC basketball power rankings.
