The 2012-13 campaign was filled with expected adjustments for Calvin Newell. A transfer from Oklahoma, Newell became eligible seven contests into the season after not playing a competitive game for a full year. He used the latter part of UCF's non-league schedule to adjust to his new teammates and get acclimated to playing competitively again.
The 6-foot-1 Philadelphia native played both point and shooting guard and made 24 starts on the year. He averaged 11.1 points during the season and in Conference USA contests, upped his scoring average to 12.9 points per game, good for 18th in the league.
At times a year ago, he exhibited his prolific scoring ability. His 24-point outing vs. Rice and 17-point performance at Old Dominion showed that Newell is a special offensive talent. Now that Newell has adjusted to UCF, those types of outings could become more common during his senior campaign in 2013-14.
