UConn head coach Geno Auriemma is not a fan of the new ACC rule requesting teams to forgo postgame handshakes as a precaution against coronavirus. While speaking to the media Auriemma pointed out what he believes are some hypocrisies. "Our men played Houston the other day. They sweated on each other for two hours and then they weren't allowed to shake hands.” He then added other sports into the fold, “Our assistant, Sarah, her son is a wrestler. They wrestled for I don't know how long on this dirty mat and they go, 'no shaking hands.' I mean, come on ... Don't get me started." As of Friday evening, there were more than 100,000 cases of the coronavirus worldwide in at least 83 different counties, including more than 200 confirmed cases in the United States.
