Calhoun to return Saturday as UConn faces Texas A&M

Texas A&M can't match Thabeet's size but should hang around against UConn.

Texas A&M can't match Thabeet's size but should hang around against UConn.

Two days after being hospitalized with severe dehydration, Jim Calhoun will patrol the sidelines when (1) UConn meets (9) Texas A&M.

The Huskies coasted to a first round win against Chattanooga, while the Aggies knocked BYU out of the Big Dance for the second straight year.

UConn has a huge edge inside, and I expect Jeff Adrien to have a big game. He struggled down the stretch in the Big East, but matches up well with A&M’s big men.

As usual, Hasheem Thabeet is will be able to dominate on the defensive end.

Texas A&M is a good team, and guards Donald Sloan and Josh Carter have a bevy of NCAA tournament experience.

Bryan Davis had a strong game against BYU, but will find the going much tougher against UConn.

Texas A&M should hang around, but don’t look for an upset unless Thabeet and A.J. Price have horrible games.

Stay tuned.
