Curl in hospital with chest pains
LUBBOCK, Texas -- Houston women's basketball coach Joe Curl has been hospitalized in Lubbock with chest pains.
A University of Houston spokesman says Curl is in stable condition and under doctors' observation. He will miss the Cougars game against Texas Tech on Thursday in the opening round of the Women's National Invitational Tournament.
Spokesman Adam Quisenberry says fourth-year assistant coach Wade Scott will fill in as head coach.
Curl missed five games in late February with health issues and he missed the entire 2007-08 season after suffering a heart attack.
