UConn Coach Kevin Ollie:
“I couldn’t be more proud of my close friend and former UConn teammate Scott Burrell as he takes charge of the outstanding basketball program at Southern Connecticut State University.
I know that what Scott learned about the game from Coach (Jim) Calhoun and throughout his own playing career in college and the NBA, plus the coaching experience he gained under Coach (Tom) Moore at Quinnipiac will serve him well as he takes on this new basketball challenge.
But, even more important, the kind of person Scott is makes him a tremendous asset to the entire community at Southern Connecticut as he prepares his student-athletes for life following college.
I congratulate both Scott and Southern Connecticut on this special day.”
