Is it too early to hail Omar Calhoun as the program’s next great freshman? Absolutely. But I’m going ahead with this anyway. I’ve seen Calhoun practice and play in two exhibition games. I watched him go blow-for-blow with Kemba Walker during an offseason workout. In the preseason, I’ve seen him score 44 points in 53 minutes (against inferior competition). I’d imagine Calhoun — mentally and physically mature beyond his years — will, at the very least, be a double-digit scorer for UConn this season...
