It’s all been good, according to Olsen, even though getting his wind back and adjusting to the speed of college basketball has required patience. In England, he noted, everyone wanted to play soccer. There wasn’t a lot of basketball.
Olsen, thus, has worked hard to get back into the swing of things. He’s determined to always be ready when called upon.
It’s part of the big picture when it comes to Olsen.
“I think it speaks volumes for J.O. and his commitment to come here and come back to the situation he started with,” Krystkowiak said. “I think it’s going to have a great ending here before too long.”
Olsen is confident the program will turn things around by the time he graduates.
“I want to go back to the NCAA Tournament. That would be, I guess, my biggest goal and then win a Pac-12 title,” Olsen said. “Within four years, I think that’s a good goal to have. If you’re not shooting for the stars then you’re not getting better. That’s for sure."
