Round 1: #8 Kevin Ollie vs. #9 Bob Staak

Kevin Ollie vs. Bob Staak

#8 Kevin Ollie – (1991-1995)
by Meghan Bard

Kevin Ollie is the kind of player every other player should aspire to be. He may not the most physically talented player to come through Storrs, but no one has ever out-worked Kevin Ollie. Ollie spent four years at UConn, and graduated in 1995. The kid from Crenshaw High, who is now our beloved head coach, was the heart and soul of the UConn squad of the early-to-mid 90s. A natural leader and a true student of the game, Ollie played point guard along side UConn luminaries like Donyell Marshall and Ray Allen, and dished out 619 career assists.
