Calhoun released from hospital after bike accident


HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)—Connecticut basketball coach Jim Calhoun is out of the hospital, a day after breaking five ribs in a bicycle accident.

Calhoun, 67, biked at least 16 miles after hitting a pothole and falling during Saturday’s 50-mile annual Jim Calhoun Cancer Challenge Ride bike ride.

He completed the ride but collapsed while talking to friends near the finish line in Simsbury. He was taken to the UConn Medical Center in Farmington where he was treated for his injuries and dehydration.

After being released from the hospital Sunday, Calhoun said he planned to “go home and rest for a couple of days.”

Calhoun is a three-time cancer survivor. Organizers say the ride may have raised up to $300,000 for Ray Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center at the hospital.
