UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma recovering from successful surgery

Sports

(WTNH) — The University of Connecticut’s Division of Athletics has announced their Women’s basketball coach, Geno Auriemma, underwent surgery Wednesday and is now recovering from a successful procedure.

Geno’s procedure will alleviate symptoms caused by Diverticulitis. That’s a condition where the colon develops small bulges that can get infected.

He is expected to stay in the hospital for the next two to three days and will continue to recover from home.

His 2nd-ranked Huskies are back in action Sunday against Oklahoma at Mohegan Sun Arena.

Associate head coach Chris Dailey will take over the team.
