UConn Sports Roundup, November 7th

Big weekend just ended. Here we go...

The Huskies, led by Tony Cascio, got the win against Rutgers.
They will look to beat Louisville on Friday.
Men's Soccer: The Huskies advanced to the Big East semifinals by defeating Rutgers, 3-1. The Scarlet Knights led 1-0 at halftime, but UConn battled back to win 3-1. Things got a bit chippy at the end with perhaps some punches being thrown. No word yet on suspensions. In any case, the Huskies will advance to the Big East semifinals Friday at Red Bull Arena, where they will face Louisville at 5:00 PM. Winner gets the winner of Villanova-St. John's on Sunday at noon.

Field Hockey: The Huskies lost to Syacuse, 3-2 in the Big East Championship game. The selection show for the NCAA tournament is tomorrow at 8:00 PM on the NCAA's website. The Huskies went down 3-0 early, but almost managed another comeback. Oh well. Let's do better in the NCAA Tournament.

Women's Volleyball: The Huskies lost 3-1 to West Virginia. This eliminates their slim postseason hopes. We do, still, have two road games at Rutgers and Seton Hall next weekend.

Men's Basketball: Former UConn player Kevin Freeman has joined the team as a coaching staff. More info here. Also, the Huskies beat C.W. Post, 91-61 in an exhibition. The real season starts Friday night vs. Columbia on ESPNU at 7:00 PM.
