UConn Sports Roundup from October 29th, 2011

Snow in October? Come on, man! But for now, it's the UConn Sports Roundup.'

Field Hockey: The Huskies clinched the Big East regular season title outright with a 5-0 win over Rutgers yesterday. Anne Jeute scored two goals, and Rayell Heistand, Jestine Angelini, and Marie Elena Bolles added one each. This game was not close, nor was it expected to be. The Huskies improve to 6-0 in Big East play and 16-1 overall and will wrap up the regular season at Princeton on Sunday at 2 PM. Next Friday, the Huskies will "host" Louisville at 12:30 PM in the first Big East Semifinal. That game will be played at Coyne Field in Syracuse and will air on The winner will face the winner of Syracuse-Villanova on Sunday at 1 PM.

Women's Ice Hockey: The Huskies lost to Syracuse 4-0 in a non-conference matchup. Nicole Paniccia made 30 saves, but it wasn't enough as Syracuse outshot the Huskies 34-17. The two teams will square off again today at 4:00.

Men's Soccer: The Huskies will wrap up the regular season today at Seton Hall. A win clinches them a bye in the first round of the Big East Tournament followed by a home quarterfinal. They can win the Blue Division regular season title with a win and a Marquette loss or draw to Pittsburgh. The Pirates have not won a Big East game this year, so this should be an easy win for us. Then again, that's what Maryland says and they played to a 0-0 draw. And we've had some poor offense in some games this season. Don't count out a trap game. In any case, it will air on WHUS and Live Stats can be found on the Huskies' website.

Women's Volleyball:The Huskies host Notre Dame today at 2:00 PM. That game will be on Huskies All-Access, as will tomorrow's game vs. DePaul, also at 2:00 PM. The Huskies need wins to keep their extremely slim postseason hopes alive.

Men's Ice Hockey: The Huskies host Army tonight at 7:05, looking to improve to 3-0 in Atlantic Hockey play. They are 3-2-1 overall right now. Next weekend, the Huskies will play two 7:05 games at Mercyhurst on Friday and Saturday night.

Update 1:39 PM - Lots of weather cancellations. Field Hockey has been cancelled since Princeton needs to play today's conference game tomorrow. Men's soccer will be played tomorrow at 6 PM.
