UConn Sports Roundup, October 28th

Busy weekend. Let's look ahead

Cole Schneider scored a
goal in last night's 4-2 UConn
victory over Holy Cross.
Men's Ice Hockey: The Huskies defeated Holy Cross, 4-2, in the Atlantic Hockey opener home opener. Garret Bartus had 26 saves in the victory, and Billy Latta added the game-winner. Brant Harris, Cody Sharib, and Cole Schneider added goals for the Huskies. They improve to 3-2-1 overall and 2-0-0 in AHA play. Next up, the Huskies will host Army on Saturday at 7:05.

Field Hockey: The Huskies are in New Brunswick today to face Rutgers as they wrap up their Big East schedule. That game will begin at 3:00 PM. Gametracker can be viewed on Rutgers' website. A win would clinch the Big East regular season title outright for the Huskies, who are 15-1 overall and 5-0 in Big East play. Next up, the Huskies will face Princeton on Sunday at 2:00. Then, they will head up to Syracuse on Friday the 4th and Sunday the 6th for the Big East Tournament. Louisville will be the "road" team against the Huskies, and Villanova will face Syracuse in the 3-2 matchup, with the winner of this weekend's game between those two teams being "home". All Big East Tournament games will be on

Owen T. Carroll Field, home of
Seton Hall's soccer and baseball teams
will host UConn's final regular season
game tomorrow at 1:00. 
Men's Soccer: The Huskies wrap up the regular season facing the Seton Hall Pirates tomorrow at 1 PM. That game will be on WHUS. A win clinches us a bye in the first round and a home quarterfinal and a home quarterfinal on Saturday, November 5th. And with a Marquette loss or tie to Pitt, we will also win the Blue Division. We should win this game. Key word "should". Seton Hall managed a scoreless tie with Maryland at home earlier this year. Don't be surprised to see us fall victim to a trap like we nearly did against Boston University and Yale.

Women's Ice Hockey: Fresh off their first win of the year, the Huskies head up to Syracuse to face the Orange. Tonight's game starts at 7:00 PM, and tomorrow they will play at 4:00. Syracuse is 3-6 on the season while UConn is 1-5-2. Next weekend, the Huskies have a Friday-Saturday home-and-home with Northeastern as Hockey East play continues.

Women's Volleyball: Tomorrow and Sunday, the Huskies will open their final homestand of the season, facing Notre Dame and DePaul. Both games will be at 2 PM. The Huskies are currently 1-7 in conference and 11-12 overall. Theoretically, UConn is not eliminated from Big East contention, but they would need a miracle to work. Both of this weekend's games are on Huskies All-Access. Next weekend, the Huskies play their last two home games of the year. They host Pitt on Friday, November 4th, and West Virginia two days later.
