PORTLAND, Ore. — Nate Oats is probably as close a friend as UConn men's basketball coach Dan Hurley has among college basketball head coaches. But that didn't stop the emotions from boiling over at times on Friday night.
UConn and Alabama engaged in some verbal sparring at midcourt as they left for their respective locker rooms at halftime. Early in the second half, Oats was hit with a technical foul after disagreeing with a call.
