STORRS – Was at Rockville Superior Court today to get the latest on the Enosch Wolf case, and swung by UConn to pick up a few tidbits …

Wolf’s case was “continued” to April 24, his next court day. No real change there. He must continue with court-ordered treatment and counseling in its domestic violence divsersionary program. “He is in compliance and will stay in compliance,” his attorney, Rob Britt, said. Here is the full story.

Coach Kevin Ollie will get some NCAA Tournament TV time as a guest studio analyst for CBS Sports Network on Friday. Ollie and Rhode Island assistant coach Bobby Hurley will join the network (not to be confused with regular CBS) for its coverage of first-round games.

Ollie will join the studio team of analysts Wally Szczerbiak, Steve Lappas, Alaa Abdelnaby, Pete Gillen, Chris Spatola and Mateen Cleaves, insider Jon Rothstein, and hosts Adam Zucker, Dana Jacobson and Brent Stover from the CBS Sports Network studio at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City.

Tyler Olander had surgery to stabilize his fractured left foot, a pin inserted, and it went as planned. He will need six to eight weeks of rehab. Shabazz Napier is still wearing a boot on his right foot; the medical staff wants the sprain to heal completely before any basketball activity.

Donovan Mitchell, a highly regarded recruit in the Class of 2015, was on campus Wednesday for an unofficial visit. Mitchell, from New York City, plays at Canterbury School.

  Here is some background on Mitchell from New England Recruiting Report.

    No surprise that KO refuses to bounce him from the team. KO is dumber version of classless Jim Calhoun.

    Just agitated at my mom. She wants to treat me like a kid, even though I’m 32, just because I live in her basement.

    Saw the video in the link. Donovan Mitchell looks very smooth. He can handle the ball, he can shoot it, and he has hops. I like his smarts. He’s not only an offensive threat but also has his head in the game. At 6’3″ and a sophomore, he’s still growing. He’ll be, what, 6’5″ as a freshman guard? Looks like a good prospect. Remember the name.
