There are many questions floating around, as it pertains to SEC Basketball in 2020-21, but there are 5 big questions that need to be considered before the season officially begins.

With so much movement in the off-season, and unknowns entering the 2020-21 season, the SEC will certainly be one of the more intriguing conferences in the country this year. I am sure that you have at least 20 questions surrounding the SEC basketball season, and that is completely understandable.

If I had to venture a guess, 10 of the questions either have to do with how certain teams will perform this season, or how specific players will fare this season.

However, coming up with a ridiculous amount of questions that you deem significant is beyond unnecessary, which is why you shouldn’t try to overwhelm yourself. It is also pretty difficult to enjoy a college basketball season if you are focusing on questions that aren’t all that important.

For example, one question that you don’t need to be asking is, will SEC referees continue to screw over certain teams late in games? Sure, officials have a lot to do with the outcomes of games, but you shouldn’t look at two or three questionable calls, and instinctively say that it was definitely the reason why a team lost a game.

Even if I wanted to, I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve been on Twitter, and seen individuals complain about the referees after they made a few controversial calls in a game.

I can almost guarantee you that those same people rarely stop and tell themselves “maybe if that team wouldn’t have turned the ball over 20 times, and played from behind the entire game, they would have had a better chance to come away with a victory.”

Trust me when I say that SEC officiating will surely be addressed throughout the season (if it is atrocious), but it is no something that needs to be discussed heavily at the moment. If you are having trouble pinpointing a few key questions that people need to start examining, don’t stress out about it. In this article, I will help you out, by discussing the 5 biggest SEC questions going into the 2020-21 season.
