Holiday week is the moment when teams start to show themselves as real rivals. Virginia did just that with a pair of impressive wins over Baylor and Illinois in the main event of the Continental Tire. Virginia is one of the big winners early in the season, and her strong performance has been rewarded with a big rise in the AP’s Top 25 College Basketball rankings.

But not all teams are so lucky. Kentucky failed both Michigan State and Gonzaga in the initial two Tests. John Calipari has still created an opponent, but he’s not quite there yet.

“I wouldn’t trade my team for any team in the country,” Calipari said Sunday after Gonzaga lost 16 points to the Wildcats. “I would not. I’m not happy now. We lost a game that we start terribly, can’t shoot, get back in the game, and then when you do it all, you finish them. shows that we are not ready. It was Michigan. We had a chance to kill people. … But it’s a long season. Like I said, it’s November now. They are good. They played with great teams. We’ve had our fair share of games and now it just keeps going. We still have some really good teams and our league is very good too.”
