The new-look Wildcats go for a more complete performance as they try to avoid a letdown against upset-minded NJIT on Saturday night in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Classic at Rupp Arena.

The Wildcats did get this season off to a positive start Friday, beating Albany 78-65 while shooting 56.0 percent from the floor and holding a 34-28 rebounding advantage.
