It wasn’t pretty, but the blue and white left Rupp Arena with a five-point home victory over the Rebels of Ole Miss. The pulse of the fanbase is fairly predictable after escaping with a win.
On Immanuel Quickley
Immanuel Quickley is the most underrated player in the entire nation

Immanuel Quickley had his 14th consecutive game in double figures. The last UK player to score in double figures in at least 15 straight games was Malik Monk, who did it in 30 consecutive games in 2016-17.

Immanuel Quickley is my favorite player and I hope he comes back next season to become a lottery pick, all-American and SEC POY and a Kentucky legend

I think it was, mostly, a team effort and everyone contributed. But, if forced to choose, I believe Immanuel Quickley drives, tough shots and free throws on the second half made the difference. He opened things for Nick with his passes and got Ole Miss on its heels.

Credits Cal for player development regarding Immanuel Quickley. Says he might be the second-best defender in college basketball behind Hagans.

Immanuel Quickley's combined free-throw percentage in his 7 career games with at least 8 free-throw attempts: 91.3% (63-69)

Sophomore Immanuel Quickley and Junior Nick Richards. Definitely the driving force behind Kentucky’s season.

Congratulations to Ole Miss for running the single worst final-minute possession in the history of college basketball

That was a good win. Ole Miss has been playing damn good basketball the past few weeks and has some good wins in that span.

It’s almost like they should practice there once or twice.
