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.
Otto Porter of Georgetown was Player of the Week.
