Rankings from AP Poll

The 2013 Southeastern Conference Women's Basketball Tournament was the postseason women's basketball tournament for the Southeastern Conference held from March 6 to 10, 2013 in Duluth, Georgia at the Arena at Gwinnett Center.[1] The first and second rounds and the quarterfinal round was televised through FSS and SPSO, and the semifinals and finals was broadcast nationally on ESPNU and ESPN2.

Format[edit]

With the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M to the league, the tournament likewise expanded to 14 teams. As in previous years, the top four teams received byes to the quarterfinals; these byes became double-byes with the addition of a new round featuring the four lowest seeds (11 through 14; seeds 5 through 10 receive a single bye into the second round). After these matchups on the first day, the rest of the tournament proceeded as in previous years, with the 11/14 and 12/13 winners facing, respectively, seeds 6 and 5, and seeds 7 & 10 and 8 & 9 also squaring off in the second round. The four winners on the second day joined the top four seeds in the quarterfinals.[2]

This year, Ole Miss chose to self-impose a post-season ban, so the teams were seeded 1–13, and the 11 seed received a single-bye.
