Thanks to Georgia's win over Auburn and Vanderbilt's win over Mississippi, the Bulldogs will be the No. 3 seed in next week's SEC Tournament in Nashville.

Georgia will be the No. 3 seed and will have a double bye in the SEC Tournament for the second straight year. The Bulldogs pulled out a hard fought 64-61 victory at Auburn. Georgia however, wouldn't learn its tournament fate until later in the evening when Vanderbilt defeated Ole Miss.

Those two events put the Bulldogs into a four-way tie for third place along with LSU, Ole Miss and Texas A&M. The first tie-breaker was head-to-head record and Georgia finished 3-1. against those teams.

The double bye will give the Bulldogs a couple of extra days to get healthy. Georgia has battled injury throughout the season and played without Kenny Gaines on Saturday due to a foot injury.
