Kentucky's pretty good at basketball. The Wildcats entered their first game of the 2015 NCAA tournament with a 34-0 record.
They opened as a 32-point favorite over Hampton, the largest spread in a March Madness game since 2004. Hampton actually held close for most of the first half—Kentucky didn't build a double-digit lead until more than 14 minutes into the game. But by halftime, the lead was up to 19 points.
The dominance of the Wildcats had many people on Twitter making the same cultural reference.
