Notes[edit]

  • √ Due to several Kentucky players found to be involved in a point-shaving scandal, the NCAA banned the school from the 1953 NCAA tournament and asked its member institutions to boycott playing the Wildcats. Thus, Kentucky's 1952—53 season was cancelled.
  • § After defeating LSU in a one-game playoff to win the 1954 SEC championship, three Kentucky players were ruled ineligible for the postseason because they had graduated in 1953 (when UK was banned from competing). As a result, Kentucky declined an invitation to the NCAA Tournament in protest.
  • † Two victories (and one loss) from the NCAA Tournament were vacated in the 1987-88 season as part of NCAA sanctions. Kentucky was also stripped of 1987-88's SEC regular season and SEC Tournament championships.
  • # Kentucky was banned from the 1989-90 and 1990-91 NCAA and SEC Tournaments due to sanctions from the Eddie Sutton era.
  • & Kentucky finished first in the SEC standings in 1990-91 season. However, due to probation and their tournament ban, they were ineligible for the regular-season championship. (The title was awarded to LSU instead.)
  • ^ The addition of South Carolina and Arkansas led to the SEC using two six-team divisions (East and West) from the 1991-92 thru 2010-11 seasons.
  • ^^ The SEC abandoned the two-division system prior to the 2011-12 season.
