UConn’s Calhoun to have surgery
University of Connecticut men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun will have surgery next week on his lower back, the school announced on Wednesday.
The Hall of Fame will miss two games and then be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.
Calhoun will miss Saturday’s contest versus Syracuse and Tuesday’s tilt against Providence.
“I’m glad we have finally determined the best course of treatment to deal with the problem,” the 69-year-old Calhoun said. “I’m looking forward to having the procedure done, hopefully recovering as quickly as possible, and putting it all in the past.”
