Photos of Jim Calhoun prior to Sweet 16 victory

University of Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun has led his Huskies to two national championships and three Final Fours. The 2005 Hall of Fame inductee has built UCONN into one of the most respected programs in all of college basketball.  After collecting his seventh Big East Tournament Title, Calhoun has led his hot team to within one game of this season's Final Four in Houston. Prior to Thursday's 74-67 victory over San Diego State, a calm and relaxed Calhoun was seen hanging around the pool area of the Crowne Plaza Anaheim Resort with his family. Later in the day, as the Huskies boarded their bus for the Honda Center, a deeply focused Calhoun stopped to sign autographs for the gathering of fans standing near the charter. The above original photos show Calhoun 2.5 hours before tip.
