CROMWELL Kevin Ollie had seen it all before. He couldn't guarantee the result, but he knew what led Ray Allen to his dramatic shot.
"I didn't know it was going in," said Ollie, the UConn men's basketball coach, "but I know Ray prepared himself for it to go in."
Ollie used to pass the ball to Allen when they were teammates at UConn. He was watching on TV when Allen's three-pointer forced OT Tuesday night and kept the Miami Heat alive in the NBA Finals.
"Ray has never seen a bad pass," Ollie said Wednesday, after completing his round in the Travelers Championship celebrity pro-am. "His release hasn't changed; still silky smooth."
Ollie, who played his pro-am round with UConn Athletic Director Warde Manuel, Hartford women's coach Jennifer Rizzotti and pro Jonas Blixt, is an 81/2 handicap.
As for the Huskies, Ollie said there is no timetable for Enosch Wolf to decide whether to return as a walk-on, but he is still welcome. "We wish him the best," Ollie said.
