UConn ready to run and gun

It was just about one year ago that Kevin Ollie had the “interim” removed from his title as the Connecticut head men’s basketball coach, a decision that had as much to do with a potentially critical 2015 recruiting class as it did his strong start on the sidelines.

Fast forward 12 months and Ollie has Connecticut exactly where it is accustomed to being, right in the thick of the national college basketball landscape. Going into tonight’s game against Stanford (9:00p.m. on ESPN2), UConn is 9-0 and a consensus top 10 team in the country.
