Here's where UA stood in the projections before Tuesday night's home game against Kentucky:

No. 2 seed in Region 2, matched up with 15 Texas State, projected champion of the Sun Belt. Baylor is the 1 seed in the region.

Jerry Palm, CBS

No. 3 seed, matched up with 14 Belmont, projected champions of the Ohio Valley Conference. Baylor is the 1 seed in the region, Iowa is the 2.

Michael DeCourcy, Fox Sports

No. 2 seed in the Midwest region, matched up with 15 UC Irvine, projected champions of the Big West. Michigan is the 1 seed in the region.

1 seed, no specific first-round matchup or bracket given. It also gives UA a 34.5% chance of winning the automatic bid via the SEC Tournament.
