UConn HC Dan Hurley sent off for pumping up crowd against Villanova

Dan Hurley was ejected before halftime in a battle of the top 25 teams on Tuesday night when the UConn coach urged the crowd to make noise in a close game against Villanova.

The No. 21 Huskies had a 24-23 lead over No. 8 Villanova when Hurley was given a technical foul for slamming his hand on the scorer’s table following a no-call from the officials. After Villanova had two technical free throws to take the lead, Hurley waved his arms to swell the Connecticut crowd and was immediately called for a second technical foul, disqualifying him from practice for the remainder of the game.
