Twitter reactions to Wildcats’ OT triumph over Red Raiders

One of the best college basketball games of the new year sees Kentucky come away victorious.

NCAA Basketball: Georgia at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats got a massive win in Lubbock against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 76-74.

It was a very gritty win for the Wildcats in a tournament-style game that should certainly help their seeding come March.

Nick Richards played arguable his best game of the season with 25 points, 14 rebounds, and four blocks. Folks, Nick Richards has elevated himself to SEC Player of the Year contention. He has been consistently dominating teams this season and has not had a bad game since the Las Vegas trip.

This win also came off a game in which Tyrese Maxey did not play well, and did not hit any big shots. Ashton Hagans struggled defensively as well, but came up with a big deflection that went off Texas Tech with .04 seconds remaining.

Big win, Cats.
