RJ Cole at heart of everything for UConn men’s basketball team. That’s why his team loves him.

Dan Hurley had greeted the student portion of this sellout crowd, an announced 10,167, with a Ric Flair “Woooo!” before the game and the energy needle was spiked throughout a 70-65 victory on “TikTok Night.”
