UConn vs. Iowa score: Huskies coach Dan Hurley greeted with cheers after getting ejected
Hurley became a viral sensation on back-to-back nights at MSG after getting booted Friday from the historic venue
UConn coach Dan Hurley is both a savvy coach, having already engineered a win the Huskies can hang their resume cap on by, and also a social media sensation.
The first-year head coach who left Rhode Island for UConn went viral after transitioning from chest-bumping his player to calmly shaking the hand of Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim after his team took down the Orange, and Friday, he again earned some popularity among the UConn faithful by getting booted from historic Madison Square Garden. As he made his way down the tunnel following a second technical foul and auto-ejection, fans chanted his name.
Hurley spent the final 104 seconds of game time in the locker room as UConn's tilt against Iowa was all but decided.
"We've just got to keep getting better, man," Hurley said via the Hartford Courant. "This isn't some Disney movie, like 'The Mighty Ducks' or whatever. It's going to take us time to get better and, hopefully, by January and February, we're like a really strong all-around team."
Iowa would go on to defeat UConn 91-72.
