UConn Head Coach Kevin Ollie

Opening Statement

“The best gift I could get is this performance they gave me today. We had some spirit in practice with Amida being out. We had a lot of guys step up and the message I wanted to send was Amida’s been covering us the whole year and now its our time to cover him. We got to make sure we continue to play hard until he comes back. He’s getting the surgery tomorrow because something happened. They’re saying 6-8 weeks but I know with him he’ll be knocking on my door in 5. We just got to cover him and perform like we did today and get ready for conference play.”

On running people in and out to fill Brimah’s spot

“Is that what I did? I know Kenton has been playing well getting his second double double of his career. Shon established himself with 25 points. We want our bigs to perform like that. They gotta step it up and guards gotta do a better job keeping their guys in front of them.”


UConn Graduate Student Shonn Miller

On Daniel Hamilton’s passing

“You just know you always have to be ready, he will find you.”

On adjusting without Amida Brimah

“Yeah, we just knew different people had to step up. Whether it is defensively or offensively.”
