SEC hoops success: last 10 years

Since most of us are locked down due to coronamania, I found some time to some data digging. This "episode" highlights how many times each team has made the NCAA Tournament. I used a starting point of the 2010 NCAAT (2009-10 season) to make it 10 years.


Alabama- 2012, 2018
Arkansas- 2015, 2017-2018
Auburn 2018, 2019 (4)
LSU- 2015, 2019 (16)
Miss St- 2019
Ole Miss- 2013, 2015, 2019
Texas A&M- 2010-2011, 2016 (16), 2018 (16)

Florida- 2010, 2011 (8), 2012 (8), 2013 (8), 2014 (4), 2017 (8), 2018, 2019
Georgia- 2011, 2015
Kentucky- 2010 (8), 2011(4), 2012 (C), 2014(2), 2015(4), 2016(16), 2017 (8), 2018(16), 2019 (8)
Missouri- 2010-2013, 2018
Tennessee- 2010 (8), 2011, 2014 (16), 2018, 2019 (16)
South Carolina- 2017 (4)
Vanderbilt- 2010-2012, 2016-2017

Let me stack it by total # of appearances best to worst:

9- Kentucky
8- Florida
5- Vanderbilt, Tennessee
4- Missouri, Texas A&M
3- Arkansas, Ole Miss
2- Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Georgia
1- Miss St, SC Lite

Number in ( ) indicate elimination past 1st week.
We all knew Kentucky and Florida were the powerhouses, but Vandy being tied for 3rd in appearances (with UTK) surprised me. They never really made noise in the NCAAT, but they were in it.

Miss St and SC lite were dreadful, but SC lite can feast off that fluke Final Four for the next 20 years.
Arkansas and Mizzou have been non factors... and both were supposed to raise the basketball profile when they entered. Can we ship them back to the SWC/Big 12?

I'll throw a few more of these up in the next few weeks to pass the time. Hope you find them interesting. If there are any errors (starting at a screen for a few hours does wonders to my eyes) let me know.
