Omar Will Be at Top 100 Camp

Omar Calhoun will participate in the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) Top 100 High School Camp this week (Wednesday through Saturday) at the University of Virginia's John Paul Jones Arena.

Calhoun, a 6-foot-5, Class of 2012 shooting guard out of Christ the King High in New York, committed to the Huskies last week.

The camp, which will feature 18 of the top 20 ranked high school players in the nation, helps prepare players for competition and life at the next level. (There are seminars on everything from how to dress to sex education. We kid you not).

Among the other participants include Andre Drummond (Class of 2012), Mitch McGary ('12) and Nerlens Noel ('13) -- players UConn is recruiting heavily.

(As an aside, who ever would have guessed UVA would name its basketball arena after Led Zeppelin's bassist?)

I wouldn't be too surprised, David. After all, JPJ was more than just the bassist. He also played several other instruments, such as keyboards and mandolin, as well as writing and arranging much of their music. It's really neat that UVA named their auditorium after him, instead of someone much less cool, like an American Revolutionary War hero from the ancient past.
