WASHINGTON (AP) -Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun missed an entire game for the first time in nearly five years Saturday, sitting out because of flulike symptoms while his Huskies faced No. 7 Georgetown.
Calhoun, who was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in 2005, left the sideline in the second half of Connecticut's victory over St. John's on Tuesday night, but he was expected to coach Saturday.
Associate head coach George Blaney led Connecticut in Calhoun's place.
Calhoun was at the arena but stayed in the coaches' locker room at tipoff.
``He's not feeling well,'' UConn assistant athletic director Kyle Muncy said. ``He was going to see how he felt once he got here, and our team doctor recommended that he not come out.''
Calhoun has missed part or all of 19 games since 1990, Muncy said. The last time UConn played a game and Calhoun didn't coach any of it was in February 2003, when he was recovering from prostate cancer surgery.
