UConn Basketball

with Kevin Duffy

Notes/Quotes from Feb. 12: “We go forward. I’m not going to make a comment on Enosch’s situation.”

UConn coach Kevin Ollie didn’t comment much on Enosch’s Wolf’s indefinite suspension, other than to say, “We’re going to let the legal process take care of itself. You all read my comments I put in the paper yesterday.”

Ollie did, however, speak on lineup changes and No. 6 Syracuse, which visits the XL Center Wednesday at 7 p.m.

*Ollie on Tyler Olander: “He’s giving us (energy and effort), but it has to be on another level. We want him to get rebounds. We want him to get double-doubles, and I believe he can do it. And I think he believes he can do it. But to get that, it has to take massive action by him. It has to be immediate. You have to feel him out there. He has to be involved, and he has to make himself involved. There’s nothing I can do. I’m on the bench, so he has to take it on himself.”

*Ollie on the Syracuse/UConn rivalry: “I grew up watching Syracuse and Connecticut. The reason I came to Connecticut was Stevie Thompson, he was from my high school and he chose Syracuse, so I’ve always been…When I was at Crenshaw, I was a fan of Syracuse, so seeing Connecticut, seeing the Big East, seeing Georgetown, you hate to see it come to an end, but it’s part of life. You have to move on and I know our AD and our President are going to put us in a great situation going forward.”

*Ollie on Phil Nolan: “He’s going to have to (step up). There’s no more waiting. He’s going to learn through experience.”
