Digger Phelps recovering from prostate surgery

SEATTLE – Digger Phelps had prostate cancer surgery and is recovering at the University of Washington Medical Center.

His daughter said Wednesday that the former basketball coach and current ESPN analyst is resting comfortably. The 68-year-old Phelps was diagnosed with prostate cancer on April 28.

Daughter Karen Moyer said the cancer was detected during a routine physical.
