Omar Calhoun is Big East Rookie of the Week

by Categorized: Big East, Omar Calhoun, UConn men's basketball

The Huskies’ Omar Calhoun was named the Big East’s Rookie of the Week for the second time this season.

This honor is quite a bit different from the first, which came during the non-conference schedule. He had scored 39 points in two games against Maryland-Eastern Shore and Fordham. This past week? Calhoun scored 15 against Syracuse and 16 against Villanova, getting six rebounds in each game as the Huskies split.

It shows how far Calhoun has come, as he develops his game against top-level competition.

 Here is a story on Calhoun that appeared in the Monday Courant.

Otto Porter of Georgetown was Player of the Week.

      I think you mean “freshmen.” If you’re going to troll, take a moment to proofread.

    Hip Hop Fool knows about as much about “the Hood” as a teenager from Granby. That’s probably who he is – a little geek from a suburban town.


    Right now, Omar Calhoun has the best potential of anyone on this roster to play in the NBA. Napier may make it via the 10 day contract route. Boatright too small and plays ZERO defense.

      Stop it… Napier will make the NBA. Yes, he won’t be a star, but probably more like a JJ Barea type. Boatright has potential to make the NBA too. Again, he won’t be a star but he has NBA quickness & a decent outside shot. He could improve his defense but he just turned 20 years old, so give him time. He does average 1.6 steals, which is good.

      Calhoun is no where NBA ready at this point, so it’s not even worth discussing yet.

      Gotta love the uneducated.
