ESPN.com Power Rankings: Nov. 25
Kentucky started the season No. 1 in pretty much every major poll. A 32-point win over Kansas wasn't going to change that. Sure, the Wildcats struggled at home against Buffalo, but that rout of Kansas at the Champions Classic put fear in the hearts of teams around the country.
Which others, though, made a little noise early? Well, Duke looked impressive; Wisconsin, Arizona and Gonzaga, too.
The teams that haven't looked so hot? Yes, we're looking at you, Florida and VCU.
