10 SEC teams make tournament, no Tennessee

The SEC has the most teams in the 2014 NCAA Baseball Tournament. That's the most ever for a single conference in the history of the tournament.

Florida, LSU, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Arkansas, Kentucky, Alabama, Mississippi State and Texas A&M all made the cut.

With a final overall record of 31-23 and losing in the first round of the SEC Tournament to Vanderbilt, Tennessee did not make the list. The Vols haven't been to the NCAA Tournament in nine years.
