UConn Sports Roundup, November 12, 2011

Stephane Diop led the Huskies
to victory vs. Louisville last
Men's Soccer: We're on to the Big East Final! We defeated Louisville 1-0 yesterday thanks to a perfect strike from distance off the foot of Stephane Diop in the 81st minute. We will face St. John's in the final tomorrow at noon. That game is available nationally on CBS Sports Network and locally on SNY and other regional television.

Field Hockey: The Huskies defeated Princeton, 3-2 earlier today. They will face the winner of Penn State-Northeastern in the Quarterfinals tomorrow at 2:00. Anne Jeute scored two goals for the Huskies and Chloe Hunnable added a third.

UConn handled Columbia fairly easily last night, but
could have done better.
Men's Basketball: The Huskies opened up the season by beating Columbia, 70-57.  Jeremy Lamb led the way with 30 points. The Huskies will next face Wagner on Monday at 7:30. That game will be at Gampel Pavilion and air on SNY. A 13 point win over a .500 team from the Ivy League is decent, but we hardly blew them out of the water. Also, the championship banner was unveiled, but not before technical difficulties delayed the dropping of the tarp.

The Huskies and Crusaders last
faced off in last year's opener.
UConn won 117-37.
Women's Basketball: It's opening day for the Huskies tomorrow at 2:00 as they host the Holy Cross Crusaders. That game will be on CPTV live from Gampel. It should be an easy win.
