UConn: Calhoun resting after hip surgery
UConn: Calhoun resting after successful hip surgery, expected to leave hospital in a few days
By The Associated Press

FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) ¯¯¯ UConn coach Jim Calhoun has undergone successful surgery to repair a left hip fracture from a bicycle accident.

The university said Sunday that Calhoun was resting comfortably at John Dempsey Hospital at the UConn Health Center in Farmington. UConn said he is expected to be released in the next few days and will recuperate at home.

The 70-year-old Calhoun was cycling near his summer home in Madison on Saturday when he hit sand and fell, hours before he was to coach some former players in a charity game.



Calhoun broke several ribs in an accident during a charity bicycle ride in 2009.

Calhoun has led Connecticut to three NCAA titles. Several Huskies were back in the state Saturday to participate in the Jim Calhoun Celebrity Classic game.
