On Thursday night, the UConn Huskies and Syracuse Orange met in a matchup that never disappoints. The Huskies escaped with an 83-76 win over the No. 15 team in the country.

With first-year head coach Dan Hurley on the sidelines, the Huskies looked like the better team all night. Hurley took over a poor Rhode Island program and led the team to two NCAA Tournament bids in his final two years with the team.

It looks like UConn made the right hire in Hurley, who has the team playing inspired basketball. The Huskies sit at 3-0 on the year and had their first marquee win of the year last night.

After the win, video of Hurley's reaction went viral.

Check it out.

Clearly Hurley was fired up after his first huge win with the team.

The Huskies are on the right track after back-to-back losing seasons under former head coach Kevin Ollie. Next up for UConn is a matchup against Iowa.
