UConn’s Calhoun hospitalized
Jim Calhoun kept track of his top-seeded Connecticut Huskies from a hospital instead of a sideline bench.
All he missed on his sick day was one of the biggest routs in NCAA tournament history, a 103-47 win against Chattanooga in Thursday’s opening round.
Calhoun was admitted to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania on Thursday afternoon for tests and will be kept overnight for observation.
An unnamed source told ESPN.com that the 66-year-old Calhoun was treated for dehydration and received IV fluids at the hospital. The school did not say what was wrong with the coach.
In a statement released by UConn, Calhoun said he will be re-evaluated this morning and hopes to be released then.
Report: Stallworth was driving drunk
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth was driving drunk when he struck and killed a pedestrian, according to published and broadcast reports.
WSVN-TV reported that unnamed sources with knowledge of the investigation said Stallworth’s blood-alcohol level was between .08 and .16. The legal limit is .08. The Miami Herald also cited an unnamed source as saying that Stallworth’s blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit.
The Miami Beach Police Department refused to confirm the reports.
Mario Reyes, 57, was struck and killed by a Bentley driven by Stallworth about 7 a.m. Saturday morning. No charges have been filed against Stallworth, 28. If Stallworth was drunk, he could be charged with DUI manslaughter which carries a maximum 15-year prison sentence.
Stallworth signed a seven-year, $35 million contract with the Browns as a free agent before last season but was injured much of the year.

Whits’ Schwarz coach of year
After leading the Pirates men’s team to a third-place finish at last week’s NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships, Whitworth coach Toby Schwarz has been named the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Men’s Coach of the Year by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.
In his 13th season as Whitworth’s head coach, Schwarz has led his Pirates to third-place team finishes at the last two Division III Track and Field National Championships, including the 2008 outdoor meet.
At the 2009 NCAA Division III Indoor Championships, Schwarz’s student-athletes earned three All-American honors during the two-day event. Cody Stelzer won the men’s high jump, Emmanuel Bofa finished second in the men’s 800-meter run, and Jeff Kintner took third in the men’s shot put.
