    Well it will take a lot more energy than we've seen so far from the Cats. I'm not sure they are a top 20 team right now, but they can be.

    You never really know what you have until your team is challenged. It'll be interesting to see how Kentucky responds to a challenge.

    Vermont had the ball with 18 seconds left and a shot to tie the game. I'm not sure what you mean by challenged?

    But they were challenged today. You said we wouldn't know anything until they are challenged. How was this not a challenge?

    Meh. They came up tough and got the win.

    Challenged will be when they are down 10-14 points to Kansas early in the 2nd half Tuesday night. They will either respond and make it a game or lose by 20+. We will know then what Kentucky has right now.

    If Kentucky wins it won’t be by more than a couple points, but Kansas could win big. An interesting fact though is I think Kentucky has only lost 1 game all time in the Champions Classic and that was in 2013 to Duke by 3 points. Will definitely be interesting.
