Want to meet Kevin Ollie? Have a question? The UConn coach is going to be speaking at the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in Springfield on Friday, from 1 to 2 p.m. He will discuss his playing and coaching career, take questions and sign some autographs.
Sounds like a nice day-trip. Here’s more info from the Hall of Fame website.
Ollie gave his take on the new UConn look as walk-on Tor Watts modeled the new uniforms at Gampel. “It has an edginess to it,” he said.
Shabazz Napier was originally to represent the men’s team at the presentation, but, I was told, he had a class. Kelly Faris and Bria Hartley were there from the women’s team. Going forward, both teams will have identitcal uniforms.
Kelly Faris on the “old” Husky: “Thought it was cute, but that’s not really what you’re going for in sports.”
