Kentucky's 29-2 record and 16-2 Southeastern Conference mark to capture its 44th league championship leave no doubt who's the best team heading into Thursday's conference tournament in Nashville.UK point guard John Wall (11) leads the SEC in assists (6.2 per game) and is third in scoring (17 ppg), but teammate DeMarcus Cousins' numbers are just as impressive. But there's a healthy debate on which Kentucky player is the SEC's MVP — freshman point guard John Wall or freshman center/forward DeMarcus Cousins.
