Cronin, Valentine have words during UConn game

Afterwards, this is what Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin had to say about his run in with referee Ted Valentine during the UConn game, which the Bearcats lost 51-45.

“I don’t appreciate people getting in my face. Where I come from, you don’t jump in someone’s face. He apologized. He thought I was coming at him. I wasn’t. I got nothing but respect for Ted. He’s a great official. I’m glad that he’s in our league because he wasn’t in the Big East. We have no issues. I don’t see people doing that to Rick Pitino.”
