What in the world went on during the Uconn vs Baylor game yesterday?
Uconn coach Geno Auriemma was snapped by Associated Pressed photographer Jessica Hill apparently slapping Baylor coach Kim Mulkey’s rear end.
USA Today reports that when Auriemma was asked about the questionable exchange following the 76-70 Uconn lost he stated the following
“She was staring at my butt and she was commenting on it and I said, ‘Really? How about yours?’ and she went, `Yeah, look at it,’ and I went (slap), I’ll teach you a lesson. And then she started talking about how she only dated Italians her whole life and that she wanted me to set her up with some Italians and I said, `The Italians I send to see you aren’t going to date you.’ We’ve had a long and great relationship since, gosh, she was an assistant at Louisiana Tech. It goes back a long ways.
“She’s just a big pain in the butt. That’s all there is to it.”
It’s clear it was all in good fun, but a bit TMI for some folk’s tastes, no doubt. Some things should be kept behind closed doors.
