UConn Basketball: 5 Best Coaching Decisions Kevin Ollie Has Made This Season

Kevin Ollie has done a tremendous job in his first season leading the Huskies.

Kevin Ollie inherited a tall task from his predecessor—legendary UConn coach Jim Calhoun—that would've caused many other coaches to shrink from the job. 

An elite basketball program with expectations, facing NCAA sanctions, with an uncertain conference future and its two best players leaving for the NBA is the definition of not easy.

But Ollie has embraced the task and has the Huskies (19-9, 9-7 Big East) overachieving and on the verge of a 20-win season. 

Not bad for a team that was a consensus pick to finish near the bottom of the Big East in 2012-13. 

How has Ollie gotten his team to this point? Hard work and smart decisions.

These are the five best ones he's made during the course of his first season at the helm of the UConn Huskies.
