HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -UConn men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun has been hospitalized after he collapsed following a 50-mile charity bicycle ride during which he fell and broke five ribs.
Calhoun was taken to the UConn Health Center in Farmington on Saturday, where he was to be held overnight for observation and released Sunday. A spokeswoman for the hospital said he was listed in good condition.
Calhoun fell 12 miles into the race in Simsbury. Moments after he crossed the finished line, he slumped over and fell to the ground.
At the hospital, Calhoun was told he had broken ribs during the fall. The hospital said he fainted because of dehydration and trauma from the fall.
Calhoun missed the Huskies' first NCAA tournament game in March after being hospitalized for dehydration.
