UConn plays again Tuesday without Jim Calhoun

Posted: Updated:

The UConn men's basketball team will be playing its first away game Tuesday since head coach Jim Calhoun announced he is taking an indefinite medical leave of absence.

Calhoun made the announcement on Friday. School officials say he is suffering from spinal stenosis, a condition that causes severe back pain.

Assistant head coach George Blaney will be taking over in the meantime.

On Saturday, the Huskies beat Seton Hall at home after a four-game losing streak. They'll take on Louisville on Tuesday night.
