STORRS - During the past 26 seasons at Connecticut, others filled in for Jim Calhoun when he missed games due to illness. Howie Dickenman, Dave Leitao and George Blaney took their turns answering questions after games. But Kevin Ollie's presence in the interview room Thursday night was different.

For the first time since 1986, a new head coach presided over a game and the interview room. It was just an exhibition game. UConn played well enough in the second half to win 78-63.

But this is history. This video gives you a look at the first four minutes or so of Ollie's press conference.
