STORRS, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut center Tyler Olander has been reinstated to the men's basketball team a little more than a week after drunken driving charges against him were dropped.

The 6-foot-10 forward practiced with the Huskies on Thursday afternoon.

Olander was pulled over while driving a friend's car just after 11 p.m. on Sept. 7. A motorist reported he was making ''several jerky steering maneuvers'' near the UConn campus in Storrs.

An officer on the scene arrested Olander after he failed a field sobriety test, but two breath tests showed he was not drunk.

Olander pleaded guilty to driving without a license and was fined $75 as part of a plea deal.

Coach Kevin Ollie says Olander has demonstrated an added level of responsibility and maturity since being suspended, and has done well in the classroom.
