Well, the Abilene Christian Wildcats did not, in fact, beat John Calipari and his merry band of NBA stars. Instead, the Kentucky Wildcats demolished the Wildcats of Abilene, 79-44.

Without PJ Washington, the Cats looked good, although noticeably struggling without Washington. Keldon Johnson took over the game with 25 points and seven rebounds. And Tyler Herro continued his hot shooting streak with 14 points.

EJ Montgomery and Nick Richards did seem to struggle for some of the game, which will have to change, regardless of of who Kentucky plays on Saturday.

But for now, the Cats live to play another day in March. Let’s see what Twitter had to say about the Wildcats first round performance.

There were plenty of reactions about PJ, who now looks unlikely to play Saturday. Thankfully, he was in good spirits during the game.
