Social media reactions to Kentucky’s win over Vanderbilt

The Wildcats get their second SEC win in a slow game at Rupp

NCAA Basketball: Vanderbilt at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats get conference win number two in a defensive slugfest against the Vanderbilt Commodores, with only 103 combined points in the game. Kentucky trailed by two going into the second half, scoring their lowest amount in a first half this season. The Wildcats would match that point total in the second half for their lowest scoring outing of the season with 56 points.

Ashton Hagans, yet again, was the player of the game, totaling 15 points with 4 rebounds and 4 assists. A negative from the game however, is that Tyler Herro, Reid Travis, and P.J Washington combined for 12 points on the night despite each one playing over 30 minutes.

We normally complain about the defense from this Kentucky team, but tonight it was the offense that looked like they had never seen a zone defense in their history of playing organized basketball. The Wildcats just did not know what to do against it and gave a lot of teams game film for playing against them.

But despite the ugly performance, a win is a win. Especially in conference play. Here’s what social media had to say:
