If you want to win championships, the old saying is true: "To be the best, you have to beat the best."

And in college basketball that means that you are not only going to come out on top against the cupcakes and underdogs on your schedule. You'll also need to win your fair share of games against teams that are in the Top 25.

Some of these teams won their conference regular-season titles. Others cut down the nets at their league's postseason tourney.

To accomplish their ultimate goals this year, these 10 will need to "get it done" against the Top 25.
