Calhoun to miss at least three more games

University of Connecticut men's head basketball coach Jim Calhoun will miss at least three more games as he receives treatment for spinal stenosis, the school announced Wednesday.

Calhoun was already absent for conference games against Seton Hall, Louisville and Syracuse. He will now miss matchups Wednesday against DePaul, Saturday against Marquette and Monday at Villanova.

"I am happy that we seem to have located the problem and I am currently moving forward with treatment," Calhoun said. "We have to give that treatment time to see whether or not it is effective. "I'm hoping by the middle of next week, we will have a much clearer picture of where we are and when I can look forward to getting back to doing what I do."

UConn associate head coach George Blaney, who has taken Calhoun's place on the sideline since he began his leave of absence February 3, will continue in that capacity.
