Junior guard Calvin Baker will receive a scholarship for the 2008-2009 season. Dave Leitao will look to Baker to play a key role in the upcoming year.
The scholarship became available for Baker after Leitao dismissed Laurynus Mikalauskas from the team last month. No word as to whether or not the scholarship will continue following this season, as scholarships are awarded annually.
Baker sat out the 2006-2007 season after transferring from William and Mary. Last year, he averaged 8.6 points per game, and was second on the team in both assists and steals.
