Tournament winner
As of April 30, 1955; Rankings from AP Poll

Southern Conference record books do not include The Citadel's home games against Jacksonville NAS or Parris Island Marines. The Citadel counts these two games towards its records, but does not count earlier road games against non-collegiate competition (Gibbs AAU, Jacksonville NAS and Parris Island Marines). The result of this difference is that The Citadel counts one additional win and one additional loss for the 1954–55 season, while the Southern Conference does not.
