Calhoun Starting to Lose It

By David Scott - January 10, 2007

STORRS, Conn. - UConn’s struggles from the field are reaching epic proportion as the Huskies are now 7 of 25 from the field but have managed to stay within five points, trailing 28-23 with 3:08 in the half. MU, for its part, is not setting any land speed records from the field and has managed to hit just 11 of 28 (39 percent).

The oddest part of the shooting woes for the Huskies are that the vast majority of the misses have been from inside the paint.

. . . Jim Calhoun is beside himself after two straight breakout opportunities and conversions by the Golden Eagles that extended their lead to 28-21 with 4:10 left in the half. Calhoun might just need to get a technical foul for the sake of rallying his troops - or saving his sanity.

Calhoun, during one of the timeouts with a bit more than 4:00 left in the half, allegedly turned to the center court fans opposite the bench - some of whom were booing the effort of his team - and mouthed some naughty words.
