2012-2013 University of Connecticut Basketball Media Notes November 16-19, 2012 at U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam UConnHuskies.com

NIGHT OWLS: UConn has had to get used to staying up late to play basketball during the first two weeks of the 2012-13 season. Tonight’s Paradise Jam championship game against New Mexico is slated for an 11 p.m. tipoff local time in the Virgin Islands (10 p.m., EST). That follows Sunday night’s semifinal game against Quinnipiac, which was scheduled for a 10 p.m. tipoff local time, but was delayed for the CBS Sports Network broadcast and did not actually get started until 10:26 p.m. (9:26 p.m. EST). Then, the contest went into double overtime, extending the game until nearly 2 a.m. local time. The Huskies began the 2012-13 regular season on Nov. 9 with the Armed Forces Classic against Michigan State on the Ramstein Air Base in Germany, a game which tipped off at 12:09 a.m. local time in Germany. UP NEXT: After a hectic two weeks of travel to Europe and the Caribbean, UConn will finally return home to play two consecutive games this upcoming week. The Huskies take on Stony Brook, coached by former UConn captain and assistant coach Steve Pikiell, on Sunday at 4 p.m. at Gampel Pavilion and they entertain New Hampshire on Thursday at 7 p.m. in their first XL Center game of the regular season. Both games will be televised by SNY. BACK IN THE POLLS: UConn was ranked No. 23 in the AP Top 25 on Nov. 12 and was at the top of the “Others receiving votes” in the ESPN-USA Today poll. The Huskies are also No. 15 in the Nov. 19 CBSSports.com poll. It was the first time the Huskies had appeared in the AP poll since Jan. 23, 2012, although they were included in “Others receiving votes” in the poll of Jan. 30, 2012. Until the poll of last Jan. 30, the Huskies had been ranked in the AP Top 25 for 28 straight weeks dating back to Nov. 29 of 2010. The 28-week streak was the fifth longest in UConn history. Consecutive Weeks in the Polls Streak Dates 1. 77 weeks Nov. 1997-Jan. 2001 2. 67 weeks Mar. 2003-Jan. 2007 3. 51 weeks Dec. 1993-Mar. 1996 4. 36 weeks Feb. 2008-Jan. 2010 5. 28 weeks Nov. 2010-Jan. 2012

COACHING EXPERIENCE: This may be Kevin Ollie’s first season as the head coach of UConn, but that doesn’t mean that the Huskies’ coaching staff lacks head coaching experience. Between Associate Head Coach Glen Miller, Assistant Coach George Blaney, and Assistant Coach Karl Hobbs, the UConn staff boasts a combined 57 years of head coaching experience and a combined total of 860 victories. Plus, every member of Coach Ollie’s staff --- also including Director of Basketball Administration Kevin Freeman and Assistant Director Ricky Moore --- owns a UConn National Championship ring. SEMIFINAL STRUGGLE: In-state rivals UConn and Quinnipiac traveled nearly 2,000 miles to stage an epic battle in the semifinals of the Paradise Jam Sunday night, with the Huskies finally prevailing, 89-83, in double overtime. In a game that featured 19 lead changes and 16 ties, UConn rallied from a 10point deficit with 4:57 remaining in regulation time to force the game into overtime, only to lose a 4-point lead with 19 seconds left in the first overtime. In the second extra session, junior Shabazz Napier opened the scoring with a three-pointer and the Huskies never lost the lead, securing the win from the foul line down the stretch. The Huskies tied a school record with 39 made free throws (39of-45) and hit 23 of their last 24 from the line. Napier scored a career-high 29 points, 25 in the second half and overtimes. Meanwhile, sophomore Ryan Boatright added 18 points and freshman Omar Calhoun had 17. Quinnipiac had five players score double figures, led by Dave Johnson’s 16. EXTRA NOTES: The win over Quinnipiac was UConn’s first overtime victory since a 71-67 win over West Virginia in the second round of last year’s BIG EAST Championship (3/7/12). It was UConn’s first double overtime game since 1/29/11, a 79-78 loss to Louisville at Gampel Pavilion. UConn’s last double overtime victory came on 2/15/05, a 94-89 win at Providence. ... It was UConn’s 67th consecutive win over an in-state rival, a streak that dates back to December, 1986. ... The triumph also extended UConn’s all-time record against Quinnipiac to a perfect 10-0.

UCONN IN THE NBA (at start of 2012-13 season) As the 2012-13 NBA season began, there were 12 former University of Connecticut players on nine different NBA rosters, totaling a combined 75 years of NBA experience. The UConn dynamic dozen are led by Ray Allen (Heat), beginning his 17th NBA season, Richard Hamilton (Bulls), starting his 14th year, and Caron Butler (Clippers), entering his 11th NBA season. The nine other former Huskies on NBA rosters include Emeka Okafor (Wizards) and Ben Gordon (Bobcats), each starting his 9th year, Charlie Villanueva (Pistons), beginning his 8th year, Rudy Gay (Grizzlies), entering his 7th season, Hasheem Thabeet (Thunder) and A.J. Price (Wizards), each in his 4th year, and Kemba Walker (Bobcats) starting his 2nd NBA season. Beginning their rookie seasons are two of last year’s UConn starters, Jeremy Lamb (Thunder) and Andre Drummond (Pistons).

DEFEATING THE DEACONS: A 12-0 run midway through the second half, 10 of the points scored by junior Shabazz Napier, propelled UConn from a 52-49 deficit to a 61-52 lead and the Huskies never trailed again in a 77-71 win over Wake Forest in the first round of the Paradise Jam. Napier and sophomore Ryan Boatright (5 assists) each had 16 points to lead the Huskies, while Enosch Wolf had 12 points and 6 rebounds, as well as 2 assists and 2 steals, and DeAndre Daniels also scored 12. Freshman Codi Miller-McIntyre paced Wake Forest with 21 points and C.J. Harris had 17. THE BIG, BAD WOLF: UConn junior center Enosch Wolf had by far the most productive game of his career against Wake Forest in the first round of the Paradise Jam. The 7-footer from Goettingen, Germany, came off the bench to play 25 minutes and contributed 12 points (6-for-6 from the floor), 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals, all career-high totals. HOME COOKIN’: UConn continued its perfect record of home openers at Gampel Pavilion with a 67-49 victory over Vermont on Nov. 13. Since the building opened in 1990, the Huskies have never lost a season opener at Gampel, winning 24 straight. Against Vermont, UConn had a balanced scoring attack, led by junior Shabazz Napier with 13 points, freshman Omar Calhoun with 12, grad student R.J. Evans with 11, and sophomore Ryan Boatright and junior Tyler Olander with 9 points each. Olander also contributed 9 rebounds, 4 assists, and 4 blocked shots in a solid all-around performance. QUITE A START: UConn opened the regular-season with a win that shocked the college basketball world, upsetting then-No. 14 Michigan State, 66-62, on Nov. 9 in the first Armed Forces Classic on the Ramstein Air Base in southwest Germany. The Huskies came out of the gate on fire, hitting 11 of their first 12 shots and building a 16-point lead before settling for a 40-33 halftime advantage. Michigan State worked its way back in the second half, taking a 58-56 lead with 5:43 remaining. But consecutive threepointers by Shabazz Napier and Ryan Boatright put UConn in front for good and four straight free throws by Napier in the final 13 seconds sealed the win. Napier led the Huskies with 25 points, while Boatright had 13 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and 5 steals, and DeAndre Daniels added 12 points and 8 rebounds. Michigan State was paced by 17 points from Keith Appling, while Branden Dawson had 15 points and 10 rebounds.

victory. Against Vermont, the Huskies were even more stingy, holding the Catamounts to 30.0 percent shooting. Quinnipiac was the third opponent in four games held under 40 percent shooting, hitting just 39.4 percent Sunday night. For the season, UConn is holding opponents to 39.1 percent and 66.2 points per game. UConn held opponents to under 40 percent shooting in three of its final four games last year and 19 times during the season. For the 2011-12 year, the Huskies held opponents 38.6 percent. BLOCK PARTY: The Huskies just might be up to their old tricks when it comes to blocking opponents’ shots. UConn led the nation in blocks for eight straight seasons from 2002-2009. After a bit of a slip in the block statistics in 2009-10 and 2010-11, last year the Huskies finished tied with Syracuse for third in the country in blocks per game (6.9), behind only Kentucky (8.6) and St. Joseph’s (7.2). This season, UConn got off to a big block beginning, swatting away 10 Michigan State shots. For the season, UConn is averaging 6.5 blocks per game. CALLED FOR TRAVELING: The UConn basketball team is in the midst of a 15-day stretch to start the 2012-13 season that includes throusands of miles of travel. The Huskies returned on Nov. 10 from a 7,800mile round trip to Ramstein, Germany, where they began regular-season play with a 66-62 upset victory over nationally-ranked Michigan State. Following the home opener agains Vermont on Nov. 13, UConn boarded another plane two days later for a roughly 1,700-mile trip to St. Thomas of the U.S. Virgin Islands to compete in the 2012 Paradise Jam Tournament. That’s another 3,400 miles in the books, upping the total to about 11,200 miles traveled in just over the first two weeks of the new season.

A Look At The New Mexico Lobos New Mexico, under six-year coach Steve Alford, returned three starters and eight lettermen from a 2011-12 team that went 28-7 and reached the third round of the NCAA Tournament. The Lobos won their third Mountain West regular-season championship in the last four years and also captured the conference tournament title. Leading the returnees are juniors 6-7 Tony Snell and 6-4 Kendall Williams, who are the team’s top scorers so far this year at 19.7 and 18.0 points per game, respectively. Sophomore 6-4 Hugh Greenwood is the third returning starter, averaging 5.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game. Alex Kirk, a rugged 7-foot, 260-pound sophomore who started 19 games as a freshman in 2010-11 before missing last season with a back injury, is also back in the lineup, averaging 10.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. New Mexico played only one game before coming to the Paradise Jam,

an 86-81 victory over Davidson, and has added two more wins in the Virgin Islands. The Lobos stopped IllinoisChicago, 66-59, in the first round of the Jam as Williams poured in 23 points and Kirk had 9 points and 9 rebounds. In Sunday’s second-round game, New Mexico trailed George Mason for virtually the entire game and was behind, 6964, with just 17 seconds remaining. But Williams canned a long three-pointer to cut the lead to 69-67, then stole the ball to regain possession and Snell hit a threepointer from the corner with :02 on the clock to give the Lobos a thrilling comefrom-behind victory. UCONN, NEW MEXICO HISTORY: UConn and New Mexico have only met once before on the basketball court, a 78-56 UConn victory in the second round of the 1999 NCAA Tournament in Denver, Colorado. UConn went on to capture its first NCAA championship.

PRESEASON PICK: UConn junior guard Shabazz Napier (Roxbury, Mass.) was named to the Preseason All-BIG EAST Second Team by a vote of the league coaches, announced at BIG EAST Media Day on October 17. UConn was picked ninth in the preseason coaches’ poll. 2012-2013 University of Connecticut Basketball Media Notes November 16-19, 2012 at U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam UConnHuskies.com

New Man At The Helm

Head Coach Kevin Ollie

No matter when it may have occurred, replacing legendary UConn men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun was going to be an overwhelming challenge. Not only would the incoming coach have to try to fill the shoes of a Hall of Famer and one of the country’s most well-known figures on the sidelines, but he also would be entrusted with maintaining the excellence of a program that had captured three National Championships, made four Final Four appearances, and earned 17 Big East titles in the past 23 years. Kevin Ollie accepted that responsibility on Sept. 13, 2012, when he was named the 18th head coach in UConn basketball history. Ollie’s UConn his­tory --- which began in the fall of 1991 when he reported to school as a freshman from Los Angeles, continued through four successful seasons including two as a Husky team captain, and resumed when he returned to join Calhoun’s coaching staff following a 13-year NBA career --- has come full circle. Ollie takes over one of the top college programs in the country after just two seasons as an assistant on Calhoun’s staff, but possessing a wealth of basketball knowledge after learning from some of the finest teachers to ever coach the game, including Chuck Daly, Larry Brown, and George Karl. “After 13 years in the NBA, Kevin’s got a PhD in basketball,” Calhoun said as he passed the torch to his former point guard. “He’s a great basketball man and an even better person. I’m very proud of him.” The reins to the Huskies could not have been handed to anyone who wanted them more than Ollie. “This is my dream job. I was made for this job,” Ollie said on the day he was hired. “UConn is a special, special place and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but right here.” Ollie made that same decision about UConn more than 20 years ago, coming out of Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles. Playing on some of Calhoun’s finest teams during the mid-1990s, Ollie was a four-year starting point guard and a two-time captain. He played in 124 games for the Huskies, averaging 6.7 points and 5.0 assists. A third team All-BIG EAST pick, his 619 assist total still ranks third on UConn’s all-time list. But Ollie was far more concerned with team statistics than individual ones. During his four-year UConn career, the Huskies had a record of 92-33, 51-21 in the BIG EAST Conference and made three NCAA Tournament appearances. During Ollie’s last two seasons, when he served as a team captain, UConn’s record was 57-10 overall and a dazzling 32-4 in the BIG EAST, capturing two

Yet it was after his UConn career that Ollie was most impressive, displaying unmatched perseverance, intestinal fortitude, and a

never-say- die attitude as he fought his way through years in the Continental Basketball Association and the U.S. Basketball League to get his chance in the NBA. Once there, Ollie would simply not give up his dream, signing a series of 10-day and one-year contracts, dealing with trades and frustrating roster cuts. “One time, I was cut on Christmas Eve,” said Ollie. “What a Christmas present that was.” Yet Ollie would not be deterred, earning a reputation throughout the league as an outstanding teammate, with strong moral fiber, impeccable character, and a vast knowledge of the game. His perseverance finally paid off with a multiyear contract from “After 13 the Philadelphia 76ers. Ollie had years in been brought to Cleveland to men- the NBA, tor a young LeBron Kevin’s got James about acting as a professional a PhD in and Oklahoma City brought him in to do basketball. the same for Kevin He’s a great Durant.

Fame Coach “He’s a great kid, a great teamJim Calhoun mate, he was great to be around,” Larry Brown, who coached Ollie in Philadelphia, said in a Hartford Courant story about Ollie. “He was a mentor to our young players. Like all of the players I coached who had been with Calhoun, he accepted coaching the right way, he allowed you to make him better.” It was Brown, in fact, whose advice Ollie sought when he was offered the position on Calhoun’s staff in 2010. “I know he was thinking about going back to Oklahoma City [as a player],” said Brown, now the head coach at SMU of the BIG EAST, “and I told him, ‘You know you want to coach eventually. What better opportunity than to go back to your school, and with your coach, who loves you?’ Two years with [Calhoun], Kevin has all the preparation he needs.” Ollie couldn’t have had a more successful debut season to his coaching career, as

he helped guard Kemba Walker produce one of the most spectacular individual seasons in UConn history in leading the Huskies to the program’s third national championship. Last year culminated in another NCAA appearance and another UConn guard, Jeremy Lamb, drafted as an NBA lottery selection. “Kevin Ollie epitomizes what we want a UConn athlete, a UConn student, to be all about. When you say that about somebody, that’s heavy stuff,” Calhoun said. “Any fox hole you need to jump in, there’s your guy. Any time you need a person who won’t quit, there’s your guy.” This season, Ollie will use his basketball knowledge as a head coach for the first time, but his coaching philosophy is about more than the game. “I want to get victories, but I also want to present our team the way it should be presented --- with strength, with character, with discipline, with focus, with an appetite and the integrity to get better,” Ollie said. “It’s not about Xs and Os, it’s not about winning and losing, it’s about these men becoming special people. When they leave here, judge me on that.” Born in Dallas on Dec. 27, 1972, and raised in Los Angeles, Ollie resides in Glastonbury with wife Stephanie, who is also a UConn grad (‘97), and their two children, son Jalen, 16, and daughter Cheyenne, 11.

Glen Miller

Associate Head Coach Beginning his 10th season overall on the UConn staff, and his third since he returned to UConn in 2010-11, Glen Miller will assume the duties of Associate Head Coach under new Head Coach Kevin Ollie. Miller rejoined Coach Jim Calhoun’s UConn staff in 2010-11 as Director of Basketball Administration following 17 years of head coaching experience at Connecticut College, Brown University, and the University of Pennsylvania. Last year, he moved into the role of fulltime assistant coach and was an integral part of practice work, game strategy, and recruiting. Miller’s Division I head coaching experience began at Brown in 1999-2000, where his teams set school records for wins in a two-, three-, four-, and five-year span, as well as most Ivy League wins in a season. He recruited and developed 10 all-conference players and the League’s 2004 Player of the Year. Following seven years in Providence, Miller was hired as head coach of the prestigious program at Penn in 2006. He led the Quakers to the Ivy League Championship and an NCAA Tournament berth in 2006-

07, setting the school record for most Ivy League wins by a firstyear coach. He spent three full years and part of a fourth as the Penn head coach. Previous to taking over at Brown, Miller enjoyed a highly-successful span as head coach at Division III Connecticut College. In six seasons, beginning in 1993, Miller led Conn College to unprecedented heights, including a 28-1 record, a No. 3 national ranking, and a berth in the Division III Final Four in 1998-99. In 17 seasons as a head coach, Miller compiled 233 victories. A native of Groton, Conn., where he starred at Fitch High School, Miller played for two seasons at UConn, then played two seasons for Calhoun at Northeastern. He joined Calhoun’s first staff at UConn in 1986 and worked with the Huskies for seven seasons before being named head coach at Conn College in 1993. Born 8/20/1961, Miller and his wife Yvonne reside in Mansfield and are the parents of four children: Tony, Genelle, Jillian (a UConn junior), and Emma.

George Blaney Assistant Coach

Bringing a wealth of coaching experience to Coach Kevin Ollie’s staff, George Blaney is beginning his 12th season at UConn and has logged over 43 years as a college coach. He served as associate head coach for the past five seasons at UConn, taking charge of the team on those occasions when Jim Calhoun was incapacitated. Since Blaney joined UConn, the Huskies have a 278-102 record, captured six BIG EAST championships, made 10 NCAA appearances, three trips to the Final Four, and won two national championships. Blaney, a 2003 inductee into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame, brought more than 30 years of coaching experience with him when he came to UConn, including two seasons at Stonehill, three years at Dartmouth, and 22 years at Holy Cross, his alma mater, where he won 357 games, posted seven 20-win seasons, and made eight postseason appearances. He also was head coach for three years at Seton Hall in the BIG EAST before leaving to become the Vice President of Basketball Operations for the International Basketball League. Blaney returned to college coach-

ing in 2000-01 as an assistant coach at the University of Rhode Island before joining Calhoun at UConn the following year. In 30 years as a collegiate head coach, Blaney compiled an impressive 461-383 overall record. A native of Jersey City, N.J., Blaney was an All-New England player at Holy Cross, where he scored 1,012 points. After he graduated in 1961, he was drafted in the fourth round of the NBA Draft by the N.Y. Knicks and played the 1961-62 season with the team. Born 11/12/1939, Blaney and his wife Maryellen have two daughters and three sons, and five grandchildren.

• Kevin Ollie is the first new head coach at UConn in 26 years and only the 4th UConn coach in the last 43 years.

Kevin Freeman

Director of Basketball Administration Kevin Freeman takes over as UConn’s Director of Basketball Administration after serving for one year as the Assistant Director under Hobbs. Freeman, a former UConn captain and the program’s all-time leader in games played (140), came back to Storrs last year after playing 11 seasons of professional basketball in Italy, Australia, Greece, South Korea, China, Puerto Rico, Spain and Venezuela. Freeman, a native of Springfield, Mass., was an all-state performer at Paterson (N.J.) Catholic before his stellar career at UConn. He was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 1999 BIG EAST Championship and selected to the 1999 NCAA West Regional AllTournament Team as an invaluable starter on UConn’s first National Championship team.

During Freeman’s career, the Huskies compiled a 109-32 record, made three NCAA appearances, reaching the Elite Eight in 1998 and winning the national crown in 1999. He is No. 17 on UConn’s all-time scoring list with 1,476 points, No. 8 on the all-time rebounding list with 913, and earned his degree in 2006. Born 3/3/1978, Freeman and his wife Nicole are the parents of a daughter, Kekoa, and a son, Sire.

Ricky Moore

Asst. Director of Basketball Administration Ricky Moore, co-captain of UConn’s first national championship men’s team in 1999, joins Coach Kevin Ollie’s staff this season as the Assistant Director of Basketball Administration. Moore, a 1999 UConn graduate with a degree in community program development, comes back to Storrs after serving as an assistant basketball coach at Dartmouth College for the past two seasons, following his retirement from an 11-year career in professional basketball. Moore played professionally for 11 years in five countries --- Austria, Ukraine, Sweden, Turkey, and Germany --- as well as in the Continental Basketball Association and the NBA Developmental League. During Moore’s four seasons at UConn, the Huskies compiled an overall record of 114-24 and a BIG EAST mark of 55-17, winning three BIG EAST regular-season champi-

onships, three BIG EAST tournament championships, and reaching the 1996 NCAA Sweet 16, the 1998 NCAA Elite, and capturing the 1999 NCAA Championship. He was a three-time co-captain and his 510 assists still rank sixth on the all-time list. He was named to the 1999 Final Four and West Regional All-Tournament Teams and Basketball News Magazine selected him the National Defensive Player of the Year. In 2001, he was named to UConn’s All-Century Team. Originally from Augusta, Ga., Moore was born April 10, 1976. He and wife Heather are the parents of two children, daughter Kendyll, 6, and son R.J., 4.

Karl Hobbs, who spent eight years as a UConn assistant coach from 1993-2001 and helped the Huskies win eight BIG EAST championships and the 1999 NCAA title, returned to Storrs last season as Director of Basketball Administration and will again become a fulltime assistant on Kevin Ollie’s staff. Hobbs had spent the previous 10 years as the head coach at George Washington University, leading the Colonials to two Atlantic 10 Tournament championships, a regularseason title, and five straight postseason appearances, including three consecutive NCAA Tournament berths. He was the Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year in 2005-06, and notched 166 wins while at GWU. Hobbs began his coaching career as a sixyear assistant at Boston University before joining Calhoun’s UConn staff. While Hobbs was at UConn, he was instrumental in the recruitment of such Husky stars as Richard Hamilton, Caron Butler, and Emeka Okafor. The Huskies had a record of 216-56 while Hobbs was on the staff. Out of Roxbury, Mass., Hobbs was named Massachusetts Schoolboy Player of the Year in 1979-80 after leading Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School to the state high school championship. Hobbs was a four-year starting point guard for UConn (1980-84), where he served as team captain and was an All-BIG EAST selection as a senior. He led the team in assists all four years and still ranks fifth on the all-time list. Born 8/7/1961, Hobbs and wife JoAnn are the parents of two daughters, RaShauna and Kaliah.

• The UConn coaching staff has a combined 57 years of head coaching experience with 860 wins. • Every member of Coach Ollie’s staff owns a UConn National Championship ring.
