---UConn coach Jim Calhoun will be suspended for the first three Big East games of the 2011-12 season after the NCAA found him guilty of failing to promote an atmosphere of compliance and failing to monitor the program in areas of phone calls, text messages and inducements provided by a booster.
Terms of the self-imposed university sanctions such as probation and recruiting travel and phone call restrictions were generally accepted, but extended. Probation and a scholarship reduction from 13 to 12, for instance, will be over a three-year period, not two as UConn had suggested. But the most visible and embarrassing penalty will be the Huskies opening conference play next winter without Calhoun on the bench.
