UConn head coach Kevin Ollie delivered a hilarious slap to the face of freshman guard Terrence Samuel after the Huskies defeated Iowa State to advance to the Elite 8 on Friday. Samuel and some other players had been goofing around behind Ollie during his interview, so he reacted accordingly. The slap went viral almost immediately.
On Sunday, UConn knocked off Michigan State to punch its ticket to the Final Four. Ollie gave Samuel a chance to get him back.
“Terrence has gotta slap me to make sure I’m not dreaming,” Ollie joked during his interview.
Samuel then gave Ollie a love tap on the hat. If you ask me, he let his coach off easy. I would have taken that opportunity to smack him right across the face. With his team on its way to the Final Four, Ollie probably would have enjoyed every second of it.
