There was a scrum under the basket for a loose ball following a missed free throw by the Bearcats, and Cronin thought the Huskies knocked it out of bounds. When possession was awarded to UConn, Cronin raced over to confront official Ted Valentine and just lost it.
He had to be restrained by his players because he and Valentine were face-to-face. He could be seen saying “that’s bulls— and you know it” to Valentine at one point.
Cronin even pushed his own assistant in the chest because he didn’t want to be restrained. It was pretty wild.
