UConn’s guards drove the bus last week, in wins over Maryland-Eastern Shore and Fordham, and they were recognized by the Big East.

Calhoun, the freshman from Brooklyn, scored 22 against UMES and 17 against Fordham, regaining his lost three-point shot, and was named the Big East Rookie of the Week.

Boatright, who scored 21 against UMES and a career-best 26 against Fordham, got a spot on the league’s honor roll for the week.

Victor Rudd of South Florida was the Player of the Week. Click here for the full release from UConn.

Happy Holidays, everyone. I will catch you on the flip side of Christmas, when we start gearing up for the game vs. Washington on Saturday night at XL Center.
