2013 Basketball on the Bayou

I wondered where she was ranked after seeing her play, and finding her in the Top 10 is no surprise. Calhoun is simply a basketball player, not someone just playing basketball. She can take over a game under any circumstances, though she chooses to get hers in the flow, showing her team first mentality. She’s one of the best players I’ve seen this summer, hands down, and will excel at the next level. - Simmie Colson

2013 Boo Williams Invitational

Calhoun, currently ranked 10th in Full Court Fresh 50, did her part for her team often running the offense while still scoring in double digits both shooting over opponents and driving in the key.  A possible all-tournament selection if her team had advanced further, the Gauchos were instead put out in the opening game (72-56 by DFW TJACK) of the Silver Bracket. - Bob Corwin

2012 Nike Tournament of Champions

Calhoun has to do a bit of everything for a young Christ the King team. She scored 25 and 18 (drives, threes, midrange shots) in her first two games in Phoenix while running the offense much of the time and taking on the toughest assignment at the defensive end. High majors are all lining up for the latest in the long line of stars from this storied program. - Bob Corwin

2012 Nike Nationals

Calhoun has a solid frame; runs court well; naturally a 3F but could play shooting guard as well, handles ball well in open court; can shoot the mid-range jumper but currently probably more comfortable shooting from behind the arc or going to the basket; goes to the basket with either hand; could rebound and defend better although not bad at either. - Bob Corwin

March 2012 CHSAA Playoffs

Calhoun is a guard/wing with a great feel for the game from the perimeter. She has improved her shooting which allows her to knock down the three-point shot more consistently.  – Derek McKiever
