Twitter reactions to No. 1 Wisconsin’s win over previously undefeated No. 1 Kentucky
As one would expect, Saturday’s national semifinal between No. 1 Wisconsin and No. 1 Kentucky garnered a lot of attention across the country. The Wildcats entered the game 38-0, two wins away from a 40-0 mark that had never been reached in Division I men’s college basketball, and John Calipari’s team was seen as the prohibitive favorite heading into the Final Four.
On the other side of the equation was No. 1 Wisconsin, which entered the game with a 35-3 record and had its mind set on avenging a one-point loss to the Wildcats in last year’s Final Four. The Badgers got the job done, winning 71-64 to advance to the national title game where they’ll play No. 1 Duke Monday night.
Below are some Twitter reactions to the outcome, beginning with former Badger Mike Bruesewitz.
