The 6-foot-3 Hagans was named Southeastern Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year as a freshman and became one of the country's best point guards this past season. In a December 28 overtime win over then No. 3-ranked Louisville, Maxey scored 27 points on 9-of-14 shooting (4-of-5 from 3-point line). Coming through high school, Maxey had the reputation for being a big-time scorer because of his ability to make deep jumpers off the bounce and because of the way that he can finish around the rim with a variety of floaters and layups. Maxey averaged 14 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 31 games played with the Wildcats, earning Second Team All-SEC honors in the process. "We've made a lot of memories, and I can't thank you enough for always supporting me and believing in a young kid from Cartersville, Georgia".

The Paralympic Games were supposed to take place from August 25 to September 6 and expected to house 4,400 athletes and staff. But the four-time Olympic gold medallist backed the postponement and was adamant it would not affect his ability to compete.
"[Maxey] can handle the ball, he can shoot, he's got great athleticism and he really defended as the season went on". Hagans missed the Wildcats' final game of the season, a 71-70 victory at Florida in which they rallied from an 18-point deficit, for what Calipari deemed a "personal" issue. Maxey's decision comes a day after sophomore point guard Ashton Hagans announced he will enter the draft after two seasons with Kentucky. "I'm so happy for Tyrese and his family". Hagans, who will turn 21 in early July, is considered a fringe first-round prospect, but a majority of mock drafts now project him being taken in the second.
Highlighted by six 20-point performances, Maxey scored in double figures in 22 games. "First was to win a national championship". But Texas couldn't break Baylor's stranglehold on the Big 12 and got knocked out of the NCAA tournament in the first round in 2019.
