Calhoun Hip to "Linsanity" Three Years Ago
Here's my game story from that night. It's interesting to see what Jim Calhoun had to say about Lin at the time, comparing him to "a little more athletic Doron Sheffer."
"What I really like about him," Calhoun continued, "is that he's athletic, more than you think, he controls his temperament to a real nice tempo, and he knows how to play. He's one of the better kids, including Big East guards, who have come in here in quite some time."
Somewhat prescient, I'd say.
Added Dyson: "He's a great player. He made a lot of shots for them and kept them in the game."
