University of Connecticut men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun will miss at least three more games.  Calhoun has been undergoing evaluation of back pain diagnosed as spinal stenosis, which has kept him out of the last three games.

Calhoun says he and his doctors seem to have located the problem,  and says  they are moving forward with treatment.  Now, he says, “we have to give that treatment time to see whether or not it is effective.”  He says he hopes he and his medical team will have a clearer picture by the middle of next week.

A statement from UConn says,  in addition to missing tonight’s game against the DePaul Blue Demons,  Calhoun will miss Saturday’s game against the Marquette Golden Eagles and Monday’s at Villanova against the Wildcats.
