Calhoun punished

 

UConn men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun was suspended by the NCAA for three games next season for recruiting violations committed under his watch, although the program dodged a major sanction when it was spared a postseason ban. Calhoun was cited by the NCAA on Tuesday for failing to create an atmosphere of compliance within his program and was suspended for the first three Big East games during the 2011-12 season. The NCAA also hit UConn with scholarship reductions for three academic years, recruiting restrictions, permanent disassociation of a booster and three years probation.
