Twitter reactions to Cats’ wild win over Vanderbilt

Post-halftime Kentucky was a force to be reckoned with.

The Kentucky Wildcats get their second straight win in the state of Tennessee, this time over the Vanderbilt Commodores, 78-64.

It looked like Memorial Magic was in full effect in the first half as Vandy hit 10 threes and extended their lead to as many as 15 over Kentucky.

But, basketball is a game of two halves and Kentucky came out guns-blazing in the second-half and thoroughly dominated Vandy on both sides of the ball. Despite Vandy hitting 14 threes, the Cats won by 14. What a way to whether the storm.

The defense stepped up in the second-half, led by 12 blocks for the Wildcats, their most in an SEC game since 2014 against Ole MIss.

Tyrese Maxey had 25 points, followed by Immanuel Quickley with 18 points and a couple of dagger threes to put the game away. Ashton Hagans also flirted with a triple-double, coming up just two assists shy in what was a near-masterful game for him following a recent slump.

Kentucky is back home on Saturday against Ole Miss.
