HARTFORD, Connecticut (Ticker) -- Still battling flu-like symptoms, Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun missed practice Monday, according to a report on the Hartford Courant's web site.

Calhoun did not coach Saturday's game at Georgetown. He watched the contest, which the Huskies lost, 72-69, on television in the locker room with his son Jeff. Assistant George Blaney coached the Huskies against the Hoyas.

Calhoun also missed the final 15 minutes of UConn's previous contest - an 81-65 victory over St. John's on Tuesday.

The Huskies flew home immediately following Saturday's loss, and the 65-year-old Calhoun went to John Dempsey Hospital at the UConn Health Center in Farmington.

According to the Courant, he was treated and released before midnight, then spent Sunday resting at his home.

Calhoun has missed all or part of 19 games in his 22 seasons at UConn due to injury or illness. He missed five games in 2003 while recovering from prostate surgery.

The Huskies (11-4) host Providence on Thursday in their next game.
