Social media reactions to a wild one in NYC

The wildest game of the college hoops season thus far.

UK Athletics

It was a game unlike any other the No. 9 Kentucky has played so far this season.

Defense was at a premium and offense was hard to find for much of the afternoon in the Big Apple.

Then chaos ensued when Miles Powell hit a wild three to give Seton Hall a three-point advantage with a second and a half on the clock.

Then the unthinkable...

A half court buzzer beater by Keldon Johnson sent the Citi Hoops classic into overtime.

Without a fouled out Reid Travis and a struggling Tyler Herro on the bench there was too much to overcome for the Cats in overtime.

Despite Johnson’s outstanding effort, the Cats fell to Seton Hall 84-83 as the Pirates nailed a three in the final seconds.

Though it was the Cats best defensive game for much of the first half, the offense was off as Kentucky shot just 44.3% from the field.

Kentucky is still very much a work in progress and has to find ways to win away from Rupp Arena as they’re now 0-2 away from home this season.

Here are the best social media reactions from the loss:
