Leading Huskies scorer's leg infected

STORRS, Conn. -- Connecticut junior guard/forward Rashad Anderson, the Huskies' leading scorer, was hospitalized
Tuesday night with a skin abscess on his right leg.

Anderson is being treated at Windham Hospital in Willimantic,
where an infection on the inner thigh area of his right leg was
drained. He is expected to remain hospitalized for two to three
days to receive intravenous antibiotics.

The school did not say how Anderson, who is averaging 13.8
points per game, developed the infection.

Anderson's availability for Sunday's game in Hartford against second-ranked
North Carolina will not be determined until Friday afternoon at
the earliest.

Anderson scored just four points in 24 minutes in Monday's 74-66
win at Syracuse (No. 7 ESPN/USA Today, No. 8 AP).
