Social media reactions to Kentucky’s first SEC win of the season over Texas A&M

The Wildcats get their first conference win, but it came far harder than expected.

NCAA Basketball: Texas A&M at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats get their first conference win of the season in their SEC home opener against the Texas A&M Aggies, in what was looking to be a blowout, but wasn’t a blowout, 85-74.

Unlike the Alabama game, this was just Kentucky making silly mistakes and letting arguably the worst team in the SEC hang with them, but as we know, any conference game is tough. But as usual, Texas A&M was the worst three point shooting team int the SEC coming into the game and the Aggies ended up shooting 46% from behind the arc.

Maybe it’s just the opening of conference play jitters that’s getting to the team, but the Wildcats haven’t looked like the same team that played against North Carolina and Louisville. That being said, a win is a win, especially in conference play.

Ashton Hagans had himself yet another terrific game with 18 points and 4 assists and Tyler Herro was back to hitting shots with 21 points. PJ Washington and Reid Travis both had quiet games, not dominating an Aggies team with zero post presence. I would expect, and hope, Kentucky to pick it up now that the SEC gauntlet is looming.

Here’s what social media had to say:

Also, there is no way PJ Washington deserved a technical on this play:
