UConn Sports Roundup, November 16th

I've been a bit busy lately, but I'll try to update this more regularly.

Men's Soccer: By now you've probably heard it, but the men's soccer team made it to the Big East Final before losing 1-0 in OT to St. John's. They will face the winner of Monmouth and Stony Brook in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday at 1:00 PM. That game is free on It will also be on WHUS.

UConn hockey faces
Sacred Heart tonight in
a rematch of Hockey Fest
last year at Rentschler.
Men's Ice Hockey: Gets underway at 7:05 PM tonight from Freitas against Sacred Heart. The Huskies will look to get back to winning ways after a tough weekend. That game will be live on WHUS as well.

Women's Hockey: Continues to struggle, having been shut out three straight games and has one win this whole season. They need to turn it around quickly. They will face Boston University on the road this Saturday at 3:00 before hosting Vermont Sunday at 2:00.

UConn beat Pacific last night
by over 50 points.
Football: The Huskies are 4-5 and need to win two of three to get a bowl bid. They will host Louisville and Rutgers before heading to Cincinnati. All games will be at noon on Saturdays, with the Louisville one being on SNY/Big East Regional Network. We may get a bowl bid, but we don't deserve one. In any case, hopefully Scott McCummings gets more action this weekend after his comeback vs. Syracuse.

Men's Basketball: The Huskies are 2-0 after wins over Columbia and Wagner and will head to XL Center for the first time tomorrow when they host Maine at 7:00 on SNY. They should win that game, but the Wagner game was closer than it should have been, so you never know.

Women's Basketball: The  #4 Huskies routed Pacific last night, 112-53. Those are the Huskies we're used to, blowing teams out. Kareena Mosqueda-Lewis led the way with 25 points, while Bria Hartley added 18. Kelly Farris had six steals. Next up is #5 Stanford on Monday at 7:30 on ESPNU. Big game for the Huskies at home.

Field Hockey: The #4 seeded Huskies will face the #1 overall seed UNC in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament at Trager Stadium in Louisville. That game will be at 2:00 PM Friday and video can be seen here at that time. In the later game, unseeded powerhouse Maryland faces Old Dominion, with the winner facing the Huskies or Tarheels on November 20th (Sunday) at Noon for the championship.
