UConn Sports Roundup, November 4th, 2011 (UPDATED 2:03 PM)

J.S. Coyne Field in Syracuse is the setting for this
weekend's Big East Field Hockey Tournament. 
Men's Soccer: The Huskies dominated DePaul in the Big East first round, 4-0. UConn outshot the Blue Demons 26-4 and Carlos Alvarez added two goals, including one on a penalty kick. And frankly, this could have been even more of a blowout. Let's hope the Huskies can keep it up when they head into Rutgers on Sunday at 1 for the quartefinals.

Women's Basketball: Tiffany Hayes and Stephanie Dolson each had a double-double as the Huskies defeated Assumption 89-30 in an exhibition match. This should come as no surprise given that Assumption is Division II. But let's hope we can do well in the real season. Next up, we host Pace in an exhibition on Wednesday, before opening the Season vs. Holy Cross on Sunday, November 13th.

The Huskies will look to
beat Rutgers on Sunday in the Big
East soccer tournament. .
Field Hockey: The Big East Tournament gets underway today at 12:30 as the Huskies take on the Louisville Cardinals at J.S. Coyne Field in Syracuse. After that, the Orange will host Villanova. The two winners will square off at 1:00 PM on Sunday. The Orange will look to take home field advantage, while the Huskies want revenge from last year's beating at home on the hands of Syracuse. All games can be seen on

Women's Ice Hockey: The Huskies play a home-and-home with Northeastern starting tonight. The leg in Boston will be today at 7:00 PM,  while the red and black Huskies come to Freitas tomorrow at 4:00. The home game can be seen on Huskies All-Access.

Men's Ice Hockey: The Huskies are in Erie, Pa this weekend as they face Mercyhurst tonight and Saturday. Both games are at 7:05.

Women's Volleyball: The Huskies will host their final two home games of the season as they face West Virginia (tonight, 7:00 PM) and Pittsburgh (Sunday, 2:00 PM). The Huskies are 3-7 in Big East play, while West Virginia and Pitt are 4-7. Also, the Huskies have won two straight.

Football: The Huskies host the Orange tomorrow at noon on ESPNU. If they want any shot of making a bowl game, the Huskies need to win. A 3-6 start plus games vs. Rutgers and at Cincinnati, and we're done. But we're two point favorites. Let's hope we can win.

UPDATE 2:03 PM: The Huskies trailed 2-0 to Louisville early, but came back to win 3-2. Next up is Cuse or Nova. Summary to follow.
