They are the tournament champions, not the champions of the regular season (Auburn/Tennessee).

I'm old school. To me, the regular season is about seeding for the conference tournament. Kentucky is the champion!

Old school was before there were any conference tournaments! Tournaments are an excuse to extort more money from fans and carriers. And it's what makes basketball nothing more than a crap shoot!

Actually, the SEC had a tournament for its first 20 years, from 1933 until 1953. Then they abandoned it for 26 years, reviving it in 1979, so this was the 40th straight tournament since the revival.

With 66 times played, the ACC's is the granddaddy of tournaments, but a lot of folks don't know that the SEC is far and away #2 in that regard. This was the 58th overall SEC tournament, and the first SEC tournament was held 20 years before the ACC first held theirs.

Personally, I love the conference tournaments. They provide great hoops action, as we've seen the last few days.
