UConn Sports Rounup, October 31, 2011

Happy Halloween, everybody. Internet is still out in the Koch household so I am here at Starbucks. Here is the rundown...

Men's Soccer: The Huskies' late-season collapse continued yesterday, as they lost 1-0 to Seton Hall. The Pirates had previously been winless in Big East play. Nevertheless, they pulled off their second major upset of the year, following the 0-0 tie with then-#1 Maryland. We will earn the #3 seed in the Big East Tournament, and will host DePaul with the date and time TBD, though it will likely be Wednesday or Thursday.

Women's Volleyball: The Huskies pulled off their second straight win, defeating DePaul, 3-1. After falling in set 1, 25-14, the Huskies beat the Blue Demons the next three times, 26-24, 25-21, and 25-20. Next up, we host West Virginia and Pitt on Friday and Sunday at 7:00 PM and 2:00 PM, respectively. The Mountaineers and Panthers rank in the bottom of the Big East standings. Then, we wrap up with Rutgers and Seton Hall on the road, both of whom are at or below .500. With a little help, we could theoretically make the Big East Tournament by winning out.

Men's Basketball: Just three days until the Huskies open their exhibition schedule with a contest against American International. That game is at 7:30 PM on and WTIC.
