GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - It's hard to mock Southeastern Conference basketball right now.
    
Panned for early season losses and relatively weak non-conference schedules, the league has three teams still playing in the NCAA tournament. Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee - the only SEC squads to make the 68-team field - all advanced to the Sweet 16 over the weekend, giving the SEC a perfect 7-0 mark in college basketball's premier event.
    
The Gators, the tournament's overall top seed, will play fourth-seeded UCLA in the South Region on Thursday in Memphis, Tenn. No. 8 seed Kentucky, which handed Wichita State its only loss Sunday, advanced to face fourth-seeded Louisville on Friday in the Midwest Region. No. 11 Tennessee will join the Wildcats in Indianapolis and play Michigan.
