Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun had successful surgery late Saturday night to repair a broken left hip, the Hartford Courant reported Sunday.
According to several news reports, the injury occurred Saturday near his home in Madison, Conn., when Calhoun, 70, took a tumble after hitting sand with his bike. School officials said Calhoun was expected to make a full recovery after the surgery in the Uconn Health Center in Farmington.
Calhoun missed his Charity Classic All-Star Game on Saturday night in Mohegan Sun Arena that included a number of former Huskies players from his 25 seasons as coach.
He will remain at the UConn Health Center for a few days before returning home.
