It only took one game for him to see areas of concern.

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.

With six freshmen on the roster, Calipari figured it was going to be difficult to recreate last season's 38-0 run before Kentucky lost to Wisconsin in the Final Four.

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.
