Twitter reactions to Kentucky beating Florida

The Cats take care of business against the Gators, again.

The Kentucky Wildcats were back in action Saturday night for a matchup against the Florida Gators and a chance to jump into the top 4 in the SEC standings.

It was a slow start offensively for the Cats, but they were playing very well defensively as they held a 5-2 lead at the first timeout.

Kentucky was scrapping on both ends of the floor and used that to build a 17-9 lead with just under 10 minutes left in the half.

Late in the first half, it looked like Kentucky was about to run away with this game as they held a 24-11 lead.

However, the Gators fought back in a big way and made this a 26-22 ballgame coming down the stretch of the half.

Fortunately, the Cats responded with a 7-0 run to end the half and they went into the break holding a 33-22 lead.

The second half got off to a lackluster start for the Cats, but they still held a 37-30 lead at the under 16 timeout.

A Jacob Toppin jumper with just over 10 minutes remaining put Kentucky back up double digits leading it 50-40.

Kentucky used that momentum and looked to take control of the game as they built a 59-45 lead with 8 minutes to go.

Unfortunately, Florida once again battled back and at the under 4 timeout it was a 61-54 ballgame.

Down the stretch Cason Wallace made some massive plays for the Cats as they were able to get the 72-67 win.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the win.
