    Just three days after he returned from a seven-game medical leave, UConn coach Jim Calhoun sat in the stands last Sunday at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, N.J., watching some of the nation’s elite high school players participate in the PrimeTime Shootout.

    In the hyper-competitive world of college basketball, recruiting never ends, even for a 67-year-old coach with a history of medical issues ranging from prostate cancer to broken ribs.

    As the Huskies (15-11, 5-8 Big East) put up a late-season fight to get in the NCAA Tournament, Calhoun also faces a critical time in recruiting as he looks ahead to next year and beyond.

    **Also, Andre Drummond is slated to visit today’s UConn-Rutgers game.
