STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun will miss at least three more games while he receives treatment for his ailing back.
The school says Calhoun, who sat out the team’s last three games as a result of spinal stenosis, also will miss Wednesday night’s game against DePaul, Saturday’s game against Marquette and Monday’s game against Villanova.
Calhoun in a statement says doctors have pinpointed the cause of his pain and he is moving forward with treatment. The coach says he is hoping to know by the middle of next week when he can return to work.
The Huskies (15-9, 5-7 Big East) are 1-2 in Calhoun’s latest absence and have lost six of their last seven games. George Blaney will continue to coach the team.
