    But...we're a smaller conference. Picks per team for each conference:

    SEC - 8 / 12 = .666
    ACC - 6 / 12 = .5
    Big East - 5 / 16 = .312
    Big 12 - 3 / 10 = .3
    PAC 12 - 3 / 12 = .24
    Big Ten - 2 / 12 = .166
    Other/Foreign - 3

    So we still suck again :jimlad:

    Not sure what calculator he was using but the order remains unchanged, at least.

    The math is right; I just listed the incorrect number of teams for SEC (I'm too used to talking about the "new" 14 team SEC) and the Big East. I'll fix it so cychotiic can get back to not knowing the difference between your and you're.

    I know you can't, but take Kentucky out of the mix and that changes some. SEC was not good this year.

    Kentucky-4
    Vandy-2

    Those 2 account for most of the SEC picks.

    4 for UNC leave only 2 for the rest of the ACC.

    Big East has 2 from UConn and 2 from Syracuse.

    Are there any other multiple-pick teams?

    Most teams apparently only have 1 first round pick, so we're in good company here.

    ********. I don't know why I find my self sticking up for SEC basketball so often, but they are not the cupcake conference everyone else makes them out to be. Vandy had 2 guys in the first round, and another high in the 2nd. Mississippi State and UF had one a piece. In the last 8 years, they've had 3 national titles. UF, LSU, and Kentucky have all made it to the Final Four in that time. Tennessee made it to the elite 8. MSU, Alabama, and Vandy have fielded decent teams.

    Ole Miss, SC, UGA, and Auburn suck, sure...but the bottom 1/3 of most conferences sucks. The days of the SEC being a one-horse show are (and have been) gone for a while now.

    I didn't say they were a cupcake and I don't think that, but they were not great last year past UK. They have had some good years in the past 15, as you rightly note, but they weren't that strong overall last year. I mean, the Pac12 sucked last year and that is usually a very strong conference (or at least has been in the past).

    EDIT: And I should add, there have been some great years for the SEC where their tourney was pretty exciting. It's just that last year wasn't great.

    That really emphasizes I guess how concentrated the talent is in a lot of conferences. Very interesting.

    Justin Hamilton to Philly at #45.

    I didn't hate the guy, but I didn't see this coming at all until he started to get mentioned a couple days ago.
    Nice job, Justin!

    It gets better; he's probably being traded to the Heat.
