Omar Calhoun has two surgeries on hips, but will return for season


UConn guard Omar Calhoun had two procedures on his hips in recent months, both of which were designed to help relieve discomfort.

UConn said that the rising sophomore guard suffered from femoral acetabular impingement for much of last season. The surgeries, which took place in late March and late April at the UConn Health Center, were designed to alleviate pain and help him avoid any future problems.

Calhoun is expected to be one of the key cogs for the Huskies next season. He averaged 11.1 points and 3.9 rebounds per game last season and earned a spot on the All-Big East rookie team.

He is expected to be back to 100 percent by mid-August. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
