UConn Sports Roundup, November 3rd, 2011

Here's to great years for both of our hoops teams!
Men's Basketball: Good showing in the exhibition last night as the Huskies beat  American International by a convincing score of 78-35. Jeremy Lamb had 17 points and Shabazz Napier had 15. Ryan Boatright did not play due to eligibility issues. Let's look forward to the actual season, but first the second exhibition, Sunday vs. CW Post at XL Center. The first real game is Friday, November 11th vs. Columbia at 7:00 PM.

Women's Basketball: The women host Assumption in an exhibition at 7:30 PM at Gampel. Coverage is on and WTIC.

Men's Soccer: The first round of the Big East Tournament will be tonight at 6:00 PM at Morrone Stadium. The Huskies will host DePaul. With a win, we will face off on Sunday afternoon at Rutgers at 1:00 PM. Currently, the Huskies are #4 in the RPI computer rankings but only 7th in the Coaches' Poll. Top four teams in the NCAA Tournament are assured of home games through the quarterfinals and then the neutral-site College Cup. If we can win the Big East Tournament, we have a good chance of being one of them.

Field Hockey: And of course, the Field Hockey Big East Tournament is this weekend. Tomorrow at 12:30, the Huskies face the Louisville Cardinals at 12:30 PM. Then, the host team Syracuse will play Villanova at 3:00 PM. The winners face off on Sunday at 1:00 and all games are free live online at
