Twitter reactions to UK’s win over Alabama and 1000th SEC victory

The Cats reach a major milestone.

Jeremy Chisenhall - Sea of Blue

The Kentucky Wildcats advance to 3-0 in conference play with a victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide, 76-67.

Kentucky led by as many as 15 early in the second half, but the Tide clawed their way back, eventually making it as close a three-point game late in the second half.

It was an off night for Tyrese Maxey, but business as usual for Ashton Hagans, (15 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists) who was just one board and one assist away from the fourth triple-double in UK history.

Nick Richards also was up to his usual antics with 13 points, 11 rebounds, and five blocked shots, while Immanuel Quickley had 19 points and five rebounds, including a late dagger three to ice the game.

Kentucky is on the road next Wednesday at South Carolina.
