Calvin Thompson thought he was fully recovered last year from ACL surgery that cost him nearly all of the 2010-11 season.
Calvin Thompson scored 15 points, including a tiebreaking layup with 48 seconds remaining, as Howard defeated North Carolina A&T 51-50 Tuesday in the first round of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference tournament.

"I realized talking to people that rest is real important so I would go hard for a good three or four days and then take two days off and then for three or four days after that," Thompson said. "My body feels great right now. Actually, it feels wonderful. The best I have ever felt."
