Leading up to their Sweet 16 game Thursday night, some West Virginia Mountaineers were vocally confident about their chances against the unbeaten Kentucky Wildcats.
The key quote from freshman guard Daxter Miles Jr.: "Salute them to getting to 36-0. But tomorrow they're gonna be 36-1."
Well, the Wildcats did not let that happen, as they spoke with their play (a dominant 78-39 win) and their tweets:

As usual in cases such as this, the appropriate emoji is "fire."
