but it was a close contest.

amazing for the Huskies this year
even when the rest of the team has
Men's Soccer: As I mentioned yesterday, tonight at 7:30PM is SENIOR NIGHT!!!! The game is sold out already. The Huskies will face Georgetown in a crucial Blue Division showdown. Providence beat West Virginia last night, 2-1, which moved them (for now) into a tie with us for second place in the Division with 13 points. Marquette has 15 and will head to Seton Hall today at 1:00. Georgetown and West Virginia are right behind with 12 points. Of course, the Friars and Mountaineers have played one more game than everybody else. So this will be a very exciting stretch run. The Huskies will host Marquette Wednesday at 7:00 before heading off to Seton Hall to wrap up the season.
|In a New England rivalry,|
the Huskies will face the
Friars today at 1 PM.
Women's Soccer: Last night, St. John's defeated Syracuse 2-0. So, now they have 15 points to our 14 and Providence's 13. And the Huskies will face the Friars today in Rhode Island. With a win, the Huskies would host Rutgers from the National Division in the first round, and if they win, would face either Louisville or Georgetown (depending on if the Cards can beat Cincinnati today) in the Quarterfinals. With a tie, the Huskies get a #5 seed upon tying with St. John's and losing the tiebreak. In this case, they would face West Virginia again if they win. A loss to the Friars sends the Friars and Red Storm through instead of the Huskies. Opening round games would be on Thursday afternoon/evening sometime.
Men's Ice Hockey: The Huskies head to Merrimack today at 7:00 PM. The Warriors are 3-0 and are heavy favorites in this game. You can view live state here or tune your radio to WLLH 1400 AM out of North Andover, MA. Also, for those not in Northern Mass, you can listen to the Merrimack audio here. (RealPlayer is required).
|Bring it on, Otto. You'll|
never match us!
Update 3:17 PM: The Huskies lost to Providence 2-1, thanks to two goals in the last nine minutes. The Huskies led 1-0, but Laura Diclemente scored in the 81st and 89th minute to give the Friars the win. The Huskies are now eliminated from the playoffs. Also, the women's hockey team looks to be on the way to their first win of the season, leading 3-0 after two periods. Sophomore Nicole Paniccia got the start after relieving Alexandra Garcia last night for the last 42 minutes. Don't be surprised if she's the full-time starter soon.
Update 3:57 PM: Huskies defeat Black Bears 3-0 is the final. Paniccia gets the shutout. Huskies get their first win of the year. All is well. UConn is 1-5-2 on the year and will head up to Syracuse for two games. Game 1 is Friday the 28th at 7:00, and Game 2 is Saturday the 29th at 4:00.
Update 9:53 PM: 0-0 after one OT period at Morrone for the Huskies vs. Hoyas. Getting ready to start the second and final one. A goal ends it. If nobody scores, it's a scoreless draw.
Update 10:05 PM: And 0-0 is your final. Georgetown almost scored a last-second goal (literally!) but it sailed over the bar. Full write-up tomorow.
