Huggins resting comfortably

        Everywhere in Shoemaker Center, the question was the same: “Any updates on Coach?” In the hallways. On the phones. In offices.

        “There's nothing wrong with that,” athletic director Bob Goin said. “I'm as interested as they are.”

        The answer for everyone Tuesday: Nothing was new.

        Bob Huggins, the University of Cincinnati basketball coach who suffered a massive heart attack Saturday, remained in stable condition in the critical care unit of The Medical Center, Beaver (Pa.).

        There was no firm forecast as to when Huggins might be able to return to Cincinnati.

        There were no updates issued by the UC sports information office, which has been providing news regarding Huggins.

        Goin is keeping in touch with UC athletic trainer Jayd Grossman, who is in Beaver, Pa.

        “(Jayd) said (Bob) was very tired today,” Goin said Tuesday night. “He was resting comfortably. He got up on his feet and took his stroll, and that's the start of the comeback, I guess. But he was pretty well exhausted. That's about all I can tell you.

        “We just hope he gets stronger every day.”
