Calhoun Will Have Surgery For Back Pain

UConn men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun will undergo surgery Monday.  The athletics department issued a statement that on his health status.  The procedure, which will mean he’s hospitalized for one or two nights, is designed to help alleviate the spinal stenosis which had been causing him pain and which prompted his medical  leave of absence.

Calhoun has been off the bench for six games,  and will miss the Syracuse game Saturday and next Tuesday’s game at Providence.  After that, his coaching status will be evaluated on a game-by-game basis.
