LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The SEC plans to enhance security for the 2018 Men's Basketball Tournament.
Fans attending the tournament in St. Louis will be asked to enter the event with clear bags. Officials say fans should be prepared to arrive early and see a law enforcement presence all around the Scottrade Center.
The SEC is strongly encouraging fans not to bring any bags to the tournament, but if fans do, it must be clear or a small clutch bag.
Bags must not exceed 12" x 6" x 12" in size, or a one-gallon clear plastic freezer bag such as a Ziploc bag.
There will be an exception for medically necessary items.
The tournament will be held from March 7-11.
