NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Wofford vs Kentucky John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats escape a feisty Wofford Terriers squad, 62-56. The Reid Travis from Stanford took over with 14 points and 11 rebounds and played a vital part in slowing down Wofford big man Cameron Jackson.

The big story of the game, however, was the defense of the Wildcats on Fletcher Magee. Magee went 0-12 from behind the arc and Tyler Herro, Ashton Hagans, and Jemarl Baker all played fantastic defense to slow Magee down.

Speaking of Jemarl Baker, he had his best game as a Wildcat putting up 11 points and hitting a big three early in the second half to keep the Wildcats in front.

Now the Wildcats move on to the Sweet Sixteen in Kansas City, with a chance of getting PJ Washington back for the rest of the tournament. Here’s what social media had to say:
