2013 JOBE AWARD

ATLANTA, GA -- Connecticut's Kevin Ollie is the recipient of the 2013 Ben Jobe award.

"Kevin did an outstanding under some difficult circumstances," said CollegeInsider.com co-founder Angela Lento. "There were many deserving candidates but no one more deserving than Kevin Ollie."

The Ben Jobe Award is presented annually to the top minority coach in division I men's basketball. Coach Jobe is an icon in the history of basketball at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. He is best known as the head coach of the Southern University, a position he held for 12 seasons. He has also head coach at Alabama A&M, Alabama State, Talladega, Tuskegee and South Carolina State.

His record at Southern was 209-141 and included four NCAA Tournament appearances. He also coached the Jaguars to one NIT appearance, five SIAC championships, 11 SWAC titles and two NAIA Tournament Championships. Perhaps his most memorable moment as a coach was Southern's 93-78 win over Georgia Tech in the first round of the 1993 NCAA Tournament. It stands as one of the great upsets in the history of the event.
