  • UConn’s Calhoun to Miss At Least Three More Games

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Jim Calhoun’s medical leave will last at least three more game as he’s treated for spinal stenosis.

    Calhoun, who has missed games against Seton Hall (Feb. 4), Louisville (Feb. 6) and Syracuse (Feb. 11) while battling the painful lower back condition, will not be on the Huskies’ bench for Wednesday’s game against DePaul, and will miss Saturday’s game against Marquette and Monday’s game at Villanova as well.

    Calhoun has been through a number of evaluations as doctors attempt to diagnose the specific cause of discomfort in order to determine the best course of treatment.

    “I am happy that we seem to have located the problem and I am currently moving forward with treatment,” Calhoun said. “We have to give that treatment time to see whether or not it is effective.

    “I’m hoping by the middle of next week, we will have a much clearer picture of where we are and when I can look forward to getting back to doing what I do.”

    Associate head coach George Blaney will continue to be in charge of the team in Calhoun’s absence, with Kevin Ollie, Glen Miller, and Karl Hobbs serving as assistant coaches.
