Fremont girls basketball standout Emma Calvert commits to BYU (Ogden Standard-Examiner, 9/4/2019)
But before Thursday’s BYU-Utah football game, which she attended on an unofficial visit, she informed BYU women’s basketball coaches of her decision to commit to the Cougars.
“I just really liked them and I like the atmosphere there, and the players and coaches,” Calvert said.
All-Area MVP: Fremont sophomore Emma Calvert was virtually unstoppable (Ogden Standard-Examiner, 3/24/2019)
Dalebout pointed out three things Calvert saw marked improvement in: free-throw shooting (up to 76 percent this year) and leadership (Calvert was a captain this year as a sophomore).
Then defense. The Silver Wolves’ defense was aggressive this year and tried to direct traffic to the basket, where Calvert was waiting.
Calvert averaged those 2.4 blocks per game to go with an undetermined amount of altered shots, which aren’t officially kept as a statistic. Good rim protectors have that effect.
“She’ll get to the point where she doesn’t have to block every shot, but people are going to feel like she’s going to block every shot,” Dalebout said.
