SEC: Gators Got It in Hand

By David Scott - March 11, 2007

The Gators lead 66-45 with 7:41 left in the game. Al Horford has 16 for the Gators (and 10 rebounds) and Joakim Noah has 15 and 7. Sonny Weems has 15 points for Arkansas, which now has 11 turnovers to just seven for Florida.

. . . After Joakim Noah's coast-to-coast lay-in and foul (and converted free trhow) with 9:34 left put the Gators up by 20, Noah played to the endzone student section of Gator fans and waved his index finger at them. He may have been trying to conduct the band, we're not sure.

There have been several three-peat (or more) SEC champions dating back to the start of the Tourney in 1933. Kentucky ran off a string of seven straight from 1944-50; Alabama had three in a row from 1989-91; Kentucky won four in a row from 1992-95; Kentucky won three in a row from 1997-99; and now Florida's three-peat (and its third overall, still 22 shy of Kentucky's league-best 25 SEC Tourney titles.
