Kentucky picked up their first SEC victory last night in Rupp Arena against Texas A&M.
The Wildcats bounced back with a solid 11 point (should’ve been 14 point) victory over the Aggies to even out their conference record before hosting Vanderbilt on Saturday.
Kentucky had solid performances from Tyler Herro (21 points, 7-14 from the floor) and Ashton Hagans (18 points, 4 assists, 5 steals) in the win, and got production from EJ Montgomery, Nick Richards, Immanuel Quickley, and Jemarl Baker off the bench.
Getting a comfortable win over the Aggies was big for the Wildcats as SEC play doesn’t get any easier from here on out. Hopefully Kentucky can keep that momentum moving forward.

Kentucky & Florida have same overall record & the same number of wins vs. teams ranked in the final AP Top 25. In the Sagarin ratings, UK is 4-2 vs Top 30 foes, UF 3-3. UK's 17-point loss at UT came as a 5.5-point favorite. UF's home loss to Missouri was by 21 as 6-point favorite https://t.co/w741qQHLZ5— Mark Story (@markcstory) January 8, 2019
Arguing Florida over Kentucky still doesn’t quite add up.
To reiterate - Ashton Hagans has the potential to be the best on-ball defender to ever wear a Kentucky Basketball uniform.— Rex Chapman (@rex_rexchapman) January 9, 2019
