Calhoun back

Ex-UConn coach at Div. III St. Joe


Jim Calhoun has officially been named the head coach at Division III University of Saint Joseph in Connecticu­t.

The Hall of Famer had already announced he would be taking the job and has been working for a year to establish a men’s basketball program at the small Catholic university, which was an all-women’s school until this school year.

Calhoun also has continued to serve in an advisory role at UConn, where was coach for 26 seasons and led the Huskies to three of their four national titles before retiring in 2012.

The 76-year-old will return to the sidelines with a career record of 873-380 when the Blue Jays open the season on Nov. 9 against William Paterson University. That game will be played at Trinity College in Hartford, which has a gym that seats about 2,200 people, about 1,000 more than the gym at Saint Joseph.


Anthony Stolarz made 31 saves to lead the visiting Philadelph­ia Flyers to a 5-1 victory over the Islanders.

Stolarz played the entire game in place of Alex Lyon, who suffered a lower-body injury during warmups.

Robin Lehner allowed four goals on 22 shots in the first two periods. Christophe­r

Gibson played the third and made seven saves. David Quennevill­e scored for the Isles.


The chair umpire who climbed out of his seat to talk with Nick Kyrgios during a U.S. Open match was suspended for two tournament­s by the ATP.

Mohamed Lahyani will not officiate at his next two scheduled events — the China Open in Beijing, which starts on Oct. 1, and the Shanghai Masters the following week, the men’s tour said in a statement Tuesday.

The ATP says Layhani’s actions during Kyrgios’ secondroun­d victory over PierreHugu­es Herbert at Flushing Meadows on Aug. 30 were “deemed to have compromise­d the impartiali­ty that is required of an official.”

Martin del Potro has withdrawn from Team World at the Laver Cup this weekend and has been replaced by American Frances Tiafoe. Del Potro lost to Novak

Djokovic in straight sets in the U.S. Open final.
