Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie shouts instructions during the first half in a regional semifinal against Iowa State …

Connecticut players were feeling giddy after beating Iowa State 81-76 Friday night in a Sweet 16 game and they did a little photobombing during coach Kevin Ollie's postgame interview with Allie LaForce.

Turns out, the win had Ollie feeling pretty good about things, too. He turned around following his conversation with LaForce and gave Terrence Samuel a playful slap across the face to the disbelief of his players, especially Samuel, a freshman from Brooklyn who scored 10 points.
