Calhoun has developed nicely in his freshman season. He was 4 of 5 from 3-point range against Syracuse, but then became a slasher taking it to the basket against Villanova where he was 9 for 9 from the foul line. Villanova attempted to run him off the 3-point line, and Calhoun prospered taking it hard to the basket. Calhoun was the most effective offensive player for the Huskies against Villanova.
