UK Basketball Twitter reactions to NCAA Tournament win vs…


Now that that’s off my chest, what a grind-it-out game for the ‘Cats.

Kentucky seemed to be rolling on all cylinders in the first half, but Providence slowed the pace in the second half and Kentucky adjusted, especially on the defensive end. Forcing an already bad shooting Friars team to take forced jumpers and bad shots, Oscar Tshiebwe them clean up on the glass with a tournament-high 25 rebounds for Kentucky.

Now, Kentucky will await the winner of Kansas State-Montana State for a trip to New York.

After an early exit to Vanderbilt last week in Nashville, these Cats seemed to have found their groove, at least after Night 1 in Greensboro.

Soak this one in, BBN. And rest up for Sunday.

Here’s how Twitter reacted.

And I stayed in the Arena the whole game

Kentucky won this game because of Defense and Rebounding. It was really good for basically the entire game

— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) March 18, 2023

For the first time in a year, I can breathe easy. Exercised some demons tonight! LETS GO!!!!

Do not let this team get hot……..

Last time Kentucky won an NCAA tournament game, Covid-19 wasn’t a thing

Huge win for Kentucky and Coach Cal who both really needed that. The Cats advance in a East Region that is WIDE open @BarstoolUK

Streaks over. Suck it, Providence. Suck it, haters.

Antonio Reeves game ball.
Oscar rebound ball.
Jacob Toppin was great.

Just win. See you Sunday.

Oscar Tshiebwe’s 25 rebounds broke a school single-game record for an NCAA Tournament game. The list

24 Jerry Bird vs. Iowa 1956
21 Bill Spivey vs. KSU 1951
18 Bam Adebayo vs NKU 2017
16 7 times (including Oscar vs. St. Peter’s last year)

This shows why CJ Fredrick still plays a key role despite his inconsistent shooting this season.

Providence has to respect a career 41%+ 3P shooter – which is why they double Fredrick – leading to a WIDE OPEN three from Reeves. #BBN

Jacob Toppin rose to the challenge of playing against Bryce Hopkins

And he was very gracious talking about him after saying, “He is a great player and I love him”

— Matt Jones (@KySportsRadio) March 18, 2023

This was extremely lighthearted btw.

— Big Blue Drew (@BigBlueDrew33) March 18, 2023

Get me to New York and we ride til dawn

— Ian Teasley (@ianteasley) March 18, 2023

For those graduating in May, how does it feel to finally win a tournament game? #Chasing9
