UConn will honor Calhoun in September

Published July 11. 2013 4:00AM

UConn is planning a special event to honor retired Hall of Fame men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun.

"The Heart of a Champion: A Tribute to Jim Calhoun" will take place on Sunday, Sept. 22, at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs.

The basketball program experienced tremendous success under Calhoun, who guided the Huskies to three national championships and 17 Big East regular season and league tournament titles in his 26 years in Storrs. He finished his career ranked sixth all-time in Division I with 873 wins.

Calhoun announced his retirement last September and took on the role as special advisor to UConn athletic director Warde Manuel.

Tickets for the Jim Calhoun tribute will cost $125 per person and go on sale in the near future. Many former Huskies are expected to attend the event.
