UConn’s Hurley tests positive for COVID, will miss road game

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn head coach Dan Hurley and associate head coach Kimani Young have tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the team’s game at Seton Hall on Wednesday night, the school announced.

Neither Hurley nor Young made the trip to Newark for the game at the Prudential Center against the Pirates (11-8, 4-4 Big East).

The 15th-ranked Huskies (15-4, 4-4) will be co-coached by assistants Tom Moore and Luke Murray, the school announced. Moore missed a game at Marquette last week with COVID-19 but has since returned to the team.

They will be assisted by Mamadou Diarra, the team’s director of player development, and Mathew Johnson, the program video and scouting coordinator.

The Huskies, who won their first 14 games this season, have lost four of their last five, including their last three road games.
