50 Greatest Players in UConn men’s basketball history: 50-1

KEVIN OLLIE32. Kevin Ollie (1991-95) 6-2, G. Now the head Huskie, Ollie arguably got more out of his talent than any player in UConn history. He also may be one of the most underrated players ever to lace ’em up in Storrs.

Ollie was a terrific defender and facilitator, racking up 619 assists in his four years, which is good for third on the Huskies’ all-time list. He helped lead UConn to four straight NCAA Tournament appearances and an 8-4 record in the Big Dance over that span.

The Huskies advanced to the Sweet 16 in his junior year in ’94, and lost by six to the eventual national champion UCLA Bruins in the Elite Eight in ’95. Ollie also spent 13 years in the NBA with 11 different teams.
