You just never know what type of exchange UConn coach Geno Auriemma and the opposing coach are going to share when they briefly meet before a game. Auriemma and Baylor coach Kim Mulkey had one that could be categorized as playful, fun and, above all, harmless Monday night at the XL Center.

Auriemma was caught by a photographer from The Associated Press patting Mulkey on the backside. Here is his take on how exchange went down …

“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,’’ Auriemma said, jokingly. `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.’’
