RECAP: Richards, Quickley shine in Cats’ first SEC win

Kentucky shook off a slow start to handle its business against Missouri in the kickoff to Southeastern Conference play. Nick Richards was the story of the afternoon with his sixth double-double of the season (and it was a good one), but the storyline took a turn for the worse as Ashton Hagans suffered an injury in the final two minutes of the game. Fan excitement around Richards and the win quickly turned to concern for the Cats’ star point guard.

My colleagues are chasing the update on Hagans’ status and more from the postgame scene in Rupp Arena; in the meantime, read this brief recap of the victory.
