STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Jerome Dyson has been reinstated to the Connecticut basketball team after missing nine games while suspended for failing a drug test.
The sophomore guard will be eligible to play Tuesday at Rutgers, coach Jim Calhoun said.
``We'll see where he fits in,'' Calhoun said Saturday after the 13th-ranked Huskies' 67-65 loss to Villanova. ``I fully expect I would start the same team. There's no reason why I wouldn't start the same team at Rutgers that we have right now.''
Dyson had averaged over 14 points a game before his suspension, which began after he and sophomore guard Doug Wiggins were cited by campus police for possession of alcohol by a minor.
Wiggins passed a drug test and served a two-game suspension.
The Huskies lost another player Saturday.
Reserve forward Curtis Kelly is expected to be out up to three weeks after dislocating his left elbow in the first half of the game with Villanova, UConn officials said.
