Kentucky players boast on Twitter after slamming West Virginia
Just in case you weren’t sure whether Kentucky’s players were paying attention to Daxter Miles Jr.’s ill-advised prediction prior to their game Thursday against West Virginia, the final score and final tweets should tell you all you need to know.
The Wildcats went up 18-2 and ran the Mountaineers out of the gym, winning 78-39 to advance to the Elite Eight. As Kentucky Sports Radio’s Matt Jones pointed out, Kentucky could have been shut out in the second half and still won by five.
After the game, a few Kentucky players made some noise of their own on Twitter, all of which can be viewed as responses to Miles:

You shouldn't throw stones if you live in a glass house.

Well, at least Miles has one thing going for him: He was definitely Kentucky’s MVP for the game. Oh, and a word of advice, Daxter, do NOT check your Twitter mentions.
