Back in the Saddle

Jim Calhoun is “absolutely” expected to fly with the team to Morgantown, W.V. tomorrow afternoon and coach the team’s game against West Virginia on Tuesday night, according to team spokesman Kyle Muncy.

Calhoun, who’s been battling a cold for about two weeks as well as a bout with shingles, coached the Huskies in the first half of Saturday’s 80-49 win over Rutgers but felt too ill to return to the game after halftime. Associate head coach George Blaney took over the reins.

Calhoun attended the Huskies’ 1 ½-hour practice Sunday morning. Junior center Hasheem Thabeet, who suffered a right hip pointer against Rutgers, also practiced on Sunday.
