It's not overreaction, it's pure, accurate reaction: Kentucky looks like the best team in America.

Did you see what the 7-0 Wildcats did to poor Arizona State on Monday night? The teams met up for a tip in the Bahamas (the Bahamas? More on that below), and Kentucky put up maybe the most impressive performance of the young season by any team in college basketball. A 115-69 demolishing of ASU further established the top-ranked Wildcats as the best team in the sport right now.

Here are five takeaways:

1. Shockingly, there have only been two triples-doubles ever at Kentucky.

Frosh point guard De'Aaron Fox had 14 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, joining a club of two. The only other triple-double in UK history came on Dec. 27, 1988, when Chris Mills did it. This is amazing to me. In the storied history of Kentucky basketball only Mills and and Fox have triple-doubles? It literally seems unbelievable. Yet here we are.

And how about this: Fox is going to do it again. Multiple times. He's too talented not to, and the way UK's offense is set up, it would be disappointing if this was his only triple-double of the season. I'm setting the over/under for triple-doubles by Fox this season at 3.5. Anyone daring enough to take the under? The guy has the goods.

2. Kentucky put up its most points in a game in the John Calipari era.

Previous to Monday night, the most points UK scored in Calipari's tenure was 110 vs. Auburn on Feb. 21, 2015. The Wildcats' 115 points matched the most by the team in the past 14 years. UK scored 115 against Tennessee State on Dec. 30, 2002.

This marks the third straight game Kentucky has hit triple digits on the scoreboard. That hasn't happened for the program since 1977. UK scored 101 against Cleveland State last Wednesday, then put up 111 on Tennessee-Martin two days later. Additionally, UK's 58 first-half points on Monday night were the most the team has scored under Calipari.

3. Thirty-three assists. Also a program record in Calipari era.

And here was the best one. Malik Monk barely saves the pass, then hits Wenyen Gabriel for a gorgeous assist. This play, though.

That's another huge spot for Kentucky. The 33 assists on 44 baskets is remarkable. And normally Calipari likes to take the first month of the regular season to fine-tune his team's rotation and defense. The offense doesn't usually see a bump in efficiency until closer to Christmas. This year, how much better can this team be on O? It a top-five group in offensive and defensive efficiency right now.

Another level? I think you need a cheat code for that.

4. Youth is not a factor.

When you consider how young this team is, it's all the more impressive. There is no learning curve here. Calipari's freshmen have adapted immediately and look every bit the part of a title favorite. That is the surprising part. They're already this good this fast. Fox had the triple-double. Bam Adebayo went for 12 points, nine boards and three blocks. Malik Monk led the team with 23 points, plus four dimes and three boards. Arizona State shot just 34 percent.

Kentucky looked in mid-February form on a November night. The rest of the sport will no doubt take notice.

5. Playing in the Bahamas on a Monday?

Calipari scheduling this game is classic. He puts his team up against a mediocre ASU club, gets the perks of a trip to the Bahamas but avoids playing in the always-tough Battle 4 Atlantic. That eight-team tourney wrapped up over the weekend. (Baylor won out over the likes of Louisville, Michigan State and Wichita State.) Instead, Kentucky players are getting to travel in late November to a five-star resort and get good against a team that probably won't even qualify for the NIT. That's some seriously fun living right there.
