It wasn’t pretty, but Kentucky did just enough to come away with a 66-58 win over Missouri. PJ Washington and Tyler Herro led the way for the Wildcats with 18 points apiece, while Ashton Hagans added 12 points of his own. The entire second half was a struggle for Kentucky, especially on the offensive end.

Luckily, you can skip through the rough parts and just re-watch the best moments, thanks to our friends at KY Wildcats TV. Check out the highlights here:

WATCH: Kenny Payne, Reid Travis, and Ashton Hagans preview Missouri

The Kentucky basketball team has moved on from their victory over Tennessee and is ready for their matchup with Missouri this evening.

Yesterday afternoon, UK assistant coach Kenny Payne, forward Reid Travis, and guard Ashton Hagans broke down the team’s matchup with the Tigers and what fans can expect this evening.

Kenny Payne talked about winning the SEC, Calipari silencing the crowd, getting over the Tennessee game, and why he’s impressed with Missouri.

Reid Travis discussed whether or not he actually gets an IV after games, how excited he was to beat Tennessee, and how he’s handling the end-of-year grind as a fifth-year senior.

Ashton Hagans talked about getting his braces off, whether he pouts like Kenny Payne says he does, and his increased defensive intensity.
