After some bumps in the road recently, the Big Blue Nation got to see a solid performance out of their Kentucky Wildcats on Friday night. It took longer than most would have liked, but the guys got it done.

It was another slow start for Kentucky who found themselves trailing Mount St. Mary’s after ten minutes of play in the first half. UK was able to rally and muster a five-point lead by halftime but it wasn’t pretty.

One bright spot of the first 20 minutes was the continued emergence of Nick Richards. The junior Center slammed home two alley-oops to start the game and finished the half with 9 points and 4 rebounds. Tyrese Maxey also scored 9 points but Kentucky was lead by Ashton Hagans who tallied 11 points on 3-5 shooting.

The second half was another story entirely. UK got it rolling from deep and never looked back after building a 20 point lead before the under 12 minute time-out. There was once again enjoyable basketball in Rupp Arena

For the first time in a long time, this team finally put together some solid stretches of play. There is still plenty to be desired but the second half of tonight’s game was a major step in the right direction as Kentucky improved their season record to 4-1.

Here is what Twitter had to say about the Cats victory.
