STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun was back home Sunday after being taken to a hospital because of flu-like symptoms.
Calhoun sat out all of Saturday's game at No. 7 Georgetown, staying in the locker room as the Huskies lost 72-69. UConn officials say that after the team arrived back at Bradley International Airport, Calhoun's wife, Pat, brought him to John Dempsey Hospital at the UConn Health Center in Farmington.
UConn spokesman Kyle Muncy said Calhoun was released before midnight Saturday. He said Calhoun was resting at home and was feeling better.
The Huskies have the day off and return to practice Monday.
Saturday was the first time Calhoun missed an entire game in nearly five years. In Tuesday's victory over St. John's, he left the sideline in the second half, saying minor ailments and his brother-in-law's funeral had taken a toll.
Associate Head Coach George Blaney led the Huskies against Georgetown.
