    UConn's Dan Hurley speaks for first time since turning down Lakers

    University of Connecticut men's basketball Dan Hurley plans spoke publicly for the first time since he turned down the Los Angeles Lakers job. UConn held a media availability for 2:45 p.m. on Thursday on the Storrs campus. It was in a packed corner of the Werth Family Basketball Facility when Hurley answered question after question about his decision to turn down $70 million from the Lakers. There was nothing new on a contract that is expected to make Hurley the highest paid coach in college basketball, only that the deal was mostly done before the Lakers reached out.
