For the second time in less than a week, Charlie Villanueva has made news “tweeting” from his Twitter.com account.
Earlier this week Villanueva was reprimanded by the Milwaukee Bucks for tweeting at halftime of a game against the Celtics.
Thursday Villanueva, who played for Jim Calhoun at UConn, was back tweeting. This time it was about the status of his former coach for the Huskies’ Saturday game vs. Texas A&M.
Villanueva tweet: “Calhoun will coach next game, inside source.”
Calhoun, who has beaten prostate cancer but underwent treatment in May for a form of cancer called squamous cell carcinoma, was unable to coach UConn in its first round NCAA Tournament win over Chattanooga Thursday. An “undisclosed illness” was cited as the culprit.
Up until now, there has been no reliable word as to whether Calhoun would be stalking the sidelines in Philadelphia. I’m guessing Villanueva’s source is as inside as it gets (read Calhoun himself).
Wonder how long before every sports book in Vegas is subscribing to Villanueva’s Twitter feed?
