The SEC Championship 2016 live stream and TV game featuring Kentucky vs. Texas A&M arrives on Saturday afternoon as the two teams also prepare for the upcoming NCAA Tournament. Just hours after this tournament finale finishes up, Selection Sunday will go down with all of the teams, seeds and matchups for the various brackets being revealed. Both the Wildcats and Aggies are considered selections for the field, but winning their conference title could boost their position. The championship game will be a rematch of an earlier overtime battle the two teams engaged in as well. Sunday’s 2016 SEC live streaming and televised game coverage will arrive through ESPN networks.
According to The Courier Journal in their March 12 report, the Wildcats have reached the SEC Final with a 93-80 win over the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday. Guards Jamal Murray and Tyler Ulis combined for 51 points in the backcourt on 15-for-28 shooting while Isaiah Briscoe had 12 points and seven rebounds. Forward Derek Willis came off the bench to give a 14-point and seven rebound effort as well. For the game, Kentucky shot 50 percent and out rebounded the Bulldogs by 31-29. They also hit 26-of-30 free throws which always helps in terms of getting points on the scoreboard. They’ll now have a chance to capture another SEC Championship while also avenging a loss they had earlier this season by just two points to A&M.
For the Aggies, their win over the LSU Tigers was a rout, as they took down the team containing the nation’s top prospect, Ben Simmons, by 33 points. A&M held LSU to a dismal 20.6 percent shooting and out rebounded them 52-40 in the staggering 71-38 victory. The win put the Aggies into contention for their first Southeastern Conference title since 1987 while seeming to send the Tigers out of the discussion for an NCAA Tournament bid on Sunday. Now A&M will try to take down a Wildcats team they defeated earlier in the season 79-77 in overtime. In that game, Jalen Jones led his team with 24 points while Isaac Humphries got a major technical for slamming the ball down after getting fouled in overtime. That, along with a Tyler Davis putback at the buzzer helped A&M snatch the victory from the Wildcats.
On Sunday, Kentucky will be at least a four-point favorite at many sports books on the point spread. Against the spread this season, Kentucky has gone 17-15-1 overall while Texas A&M has been 19-14-0 overall. The over/under points total for this game will be at 141-1/2 to 143 points for the complete game. In terms of future odds to win the National Championship, Vegas Insider lists Kentucky with odds of 11 to 1, which has them tied with Oklahoma for fourth overall. Texas A&M currently has longshot odds of 60 to 1 to win it all.
