Jim Calhoun Breaks Hip
UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun fractured a hip in a bicycle accident Saturday, hours before he was supposed to coach a group of his former players in a charity game.
The 70-year-old Calhoun was cycling near his summer home in Madison when he hit some sand and fell, said associate head coach George Blaney. The Hall of Fame coach underwent surgery Saturday night at the UConn Health Center in Farmington.
“He hit some sand and he has those shoes that are tied in, clip-ons,” Blaney said.
