The SEC Six

By Jeff Lippman - March 26, 2007

Tennessee coach Pat Summitt said today at her team's press conference that the SEC does their damage the old fashioned way, with good old defense.

However they do it, they are doing it right.

As LSU puts the finishing touches on their dominance of No. 1 UConn--even in the face of not having their coach the entire tournament due to inappropriate actions--in the Elite Eight, that leaves six remaining teams left in women's college basketball.

Half of those teams are from the SEC.

Ole Miss meets Tennessee Tuesday for another spot in the Final Four, so that guarantees that half of the Final Four will also be from the elite conference.

While the ACC got all the recognition during the season, only North Carolina remains standing. And Maryland and Duke were bounced much earlier than expected.

And don't forget about Georgia, who lost to Purdue in the Sweet 16. They had a good run too.

The SEC has proven, without a doubt, that they are indeed the power conference in the women's game.
