The SEC Tournament opens today, Friday, Nov. 13, with first round play seeing No. 14 LSU vs. No. 11 Alabama at 6 p.m. cT and No. 13 Florida vs. No. 12 Kentucky at 8:30 p.m. No. 5 Missouri and No. 6 Ole Miss will await the winners in the second round on Sunday, Nov. 17, which will also feature No. 10 Mississippi State vs. No. 7 Vanderbilt at 1 p.m. and No. 9 Georgia vs. No. 8 Auburn at 6 p.m. I have all of the games in my Socer on TV calendar and you can watch either on the SEC Network (611 on DirecTV) or via ESPN.com/Watch/ I get the satellite channel as part of the Sports Package and I also have the ESPN+ subscription, you’ll have to confirm your alternatives. I pay $50/annually for ESPN+ and it’s one of the best deals I’ve come across. It looks like there’s also a Disney+ package for $70/annually that gets you Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ if you need another excuse 🙂 Ava Tankersley Named SEC All-Freshman Team
Before continuing on the SEC Tournament, let’s take a moment to congratulate Ava Tankersley (FZS/SLSG ECNL) for her SEC recognition. “Tank” started 7 games, playing in all 8 this shortened season as the team went 7-1, finishing with the best record in the SEC and topping the West Division. She scored three goals and had one assist. Her first goal was a memorable one against Alabama, a game-winning goal in overtime. She finished third on the team in scoring with 7 points.
