Kentucky claimed one of their most important victories of the season Saturday night at Texas Tech, a 76-74 overtime thriller in Lubbock.
Lubbock was buzzing with the Cats in town and I overheard a Texas Tech fan say, “this game is bigger than the national championship last season.”
Kentucky was up for the challenge and the win strengthens their NCAA tournament body of work.
How excited were the Wildcats after the win? Ashton Hagans let a guy at the airport know Kentucky took over their city.
