PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun will coach the Huskies on Saturday, two days after being hospitalized for dehydration.
The 66-year-old coach was released from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania on Friday morning, then had breakfast with the team and ran practice.
``I fully expected to coach yesterday morning at 10, 11 o'clock when I mentioned to Jeff Anderson, our doctor, that I hadn't been feeling well for a couple of days and he said 'Let's go down and get it checked out''' Calhoun said in a press conference Friday. ``And the next thing I knew the hour or so turned into being admitted and they tested me for everything it seemed and they found I was totally dehydrated.''
``I bribed my way out of there as quick as I could. The full physical exam, for which I got high ratings, did not include a psychiatrist.''
M in Saturday's second-round game.
This was the third NCAA tournament game Calhoun has missed. In the two previous instances, UConn went on to win the national title.
In 1999, Calhoun missed a first-round game against Texas-San Antonio. In 2004, he left a second-round game against DePaul after becoming ill. He returned just in time to see the end of UConn's 72-55 victory.
Calhoun has missed 21 games in his career, including one other game this season - a Jan. 3 contest against Rutgers.
