UConn coach Auriemma to miss Wichita State game

Posted: Updated:

UConn women's basketball head coach Geno Auriemma will miss his second consecutive game due to a stomach virus as the Huskies face Wichita State Tuesday.

"Based on my doctor's recommendations, I've decided it's in my best interest to stay home and fully recuperate," Auriemma said. "I look forward to being back on the sideline at 100 percent this weekend."

UConn is 25-2 and ranked second in the nation.  Auriemma has led the Huskies to 11 NCAA titles.  

Associate head coach Chris Dailey will lead the team in Auriemma's absence. Dailey has guided UConn to an 8-0 record in games when Auriemma has been unavailable.

Tip is set for 6:30 p.m. at Koch Arena.
