Twitter reactions to Kentucky’s Midwest Region draw

Region of Death or cake walk? Mixed reactions on Kentucky’s draw.

NCAA Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament-Kentucky vs Tennessee Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

It’s the most wonderful day of the year: Selection Sunday. And the Kentucky Wildcats draw the two seed in the Midwest region (of course) taking on the 15 seed Abilene Christian Wildcats in Jacksonville on Thursday.

Now, who’s the one seed in the Midwest? Why none other than the North Carolina Tar Heels (of course.) That’s followed by the Houston Cougars as the three seed, and the Kansas Jayhawks as the four seed. The Wildcats also get a chance at redemption against Seton Hall if both teams win their first round games.

Did you expect Kentucky to get an easy region?

Yeah, neither did I, but some think they actually did get a good draw.

Here’s what Twitter had to say about Kentucky’s draw:

I would not say “cake draw” about this region. See the West Region for a cake draw, but Kentucky has a very favorable path to the Elite Eight.
