“[Calhoun] said really he’s just old, he’s just old,” Smith said Saturday night after Oak Hill beat St. Patrick, 79-78, at Kean College. “The doctor said he needed a rest because of…high blood pressure.”
The 6-foot-8 Smith verbally committed to UConn last month and then thought his recruiting process was over.
But that was before Calhoun took a seven-game leave of absence due to unexplained medical reasons.
Calhoun returned Saturday for UConn’s 60-48 loss to Cincinnati in Hartford. After the game, he said he was “embarrassed” by the performance of his players.
