After four straight wins to end the regular season, Tennessee has earned the No. 4 seed in the SEC Tournament.

The top four seeds earn a two-round bye, meaning the Vols won't play until the quarterfinals on Friday. They'll learn who their opponent is on Thursday after fifth seeded Arkansas plays the winner of No. 12 seed Auburn and No. 13 seed South Carolina.

The Vols defeated all three possible opponents during the regular season. They narrowly defeated Arkansas 81-74 at home, and cruised to 19 and 28 point wins over South Carolina and Auburn respectively.

A win in the quarterfinals would most likely secure an NCAA tournament berth for the Vols. If they advance, during the semifinals they would in all likelihood face No. 1 seed Florida, which is also the number one team in the nation.

The SEC Tournament will take place in Atlanta, starting this Wednesday.
