UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun fractured his hip in a bicycle accident Saturday hours before he was supposed to coach in a charity game.
Associated head coach George Blaney says the 70-year-old Calhoun was cycling in Madison when he hit some sand and fell. Calhoun was scheduled to have surgery at the UConn Health Center in Farmington.
Calhoun broke several ribs in an accident during a charity bicycle ride in 2009.
He has led Connecticut to three NCAA titles.
The charity event at Mohegan Sun benefits the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center at the UConn Health Center.
