The Connecticut Huskies are going to the national championship game under second-year head coach Kevin Ollie, and his former NBA teammate Allen Iverson posted this picture on Instagram to congratulate the young coach.

Along with the picture, Iverson left this comment to congratulate Ollie:

Congratulations K.O. this couldn't happen to a better person. I'm very excited about you being in the National Championship game. I never thought I could pull for UConn, but I will this year because you're there. Good luck and God bless you ... #TheAnswer

Ollie played in the NBA from 1997 to 2010, spending six seasons with the Philadelphia 76ers.
