UConn Sports Roundup, November 18th

Alex Gerke and UConn got
the blowout win.
Men's Ice Hockey: On Wednesday night, Alex Gerke recorded a Hat trick in a 8-3 blowout over Sacred Heart. Good to see the Huskies win again. Next up is a game at Yale tomorrow at 7:00 PM. It will be on WHUS.

Men's Basketball: The Huskies defeated Maine 80-60 last night. Maine was within six at halftime, but the Huskies did a great job pulling away in the second. I didn't get a chance to watch anything but highlights so i can't comment much, but we're 3-0 against three weak teams that we should have done better against.

Men's Soccer: Monmouth beat Stony Brook on Penalty Kicks last night, so we will face them Sunday at 1:00 in the Second Round o the NCAA Tournament. The game will be on WHUS and Winner will face either Wake Forest or #14 James Madison next Sunday.

Field Hockey: The Huskies currently lead UNC 3-0 with 15 minutes to go in the National Semifinal. Winner will face the late game winner (Maryland or Old Dominion) for the championship on Sunday at noon. Watch today's game here. Update 3:22 PM: Goal UNC. 12:20 left and it's 3-1.Update 3:30 PM: UNC scored another goal apparently making it 3-2, but it was wiped off for being too high. Still 3-1, under five minutes to go. Tar Heels have a man advantage since they pulled the goalie.Update 3:35 PM: 3-2. 56.5 seconds left.Update 3:36 PM: And the Tar Heels get another goal. 23.6 seconds left in regulation and a 3-3 tie. I'll post a fuller summary when it's done.Update 4:00 PM: UConn successfully defends two penalty corners to wrap up a scoreless OT1. Fifteen more minutes of sudden victory and then penalty strokes if we're still tied.Update 4;11: Goal Tarheels. UNC wins 4-3.
