WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Head coach Bob Huggins did not accompany the University of Cincinnati basketball team here Saturday but is expected to arrive in time to coach the Bearcats today against Wake Forest.
Huggins did not attend UC's practice Friday at Moeller High School because of illness.
Brian Teter, UC's associate athletic director, said Huggins had flu-like symptoms and was expected to arrive here either late Saturday night or early this morning.
The Bearcats practiced here Saturday, once on campus and then with a shoot-around at Joel Coliseum, the site of today's game.
Associate head coach Dan Peters has been handling practice in Huggins' absence.
Assistant coach Andy Kennedy said he talked to Huggins on Saturday and Huggins told him he was feeling better and planned to coach against Wake.
