Weekend Preview November 11th-13th, 2011

A big weekend coming up. Big East Soccer Championship, opening rounds for Field Hockey NCAA Tournament, and of course, BASKETBALL OPENING NIGHT!!!!!! Let's take a look.

Red Bull Arena will host the
Big East Tournament today
and Sunday.
Men's Soccer: The Big East Championship semifinal is tonight at 5:00 PM against Louisville. That game is live from Red Bull arena on CBS College Sports Network. The Huskies defeated Louisville 1-0 earlier this season. Of course, the winner will get the winner of St. John's-Villanova on Sunday at noon. That game is on CBSCS and We will also be heading to the NCAA Tournament next weekend, and will likely be hosting straight through to the quarterfinals if we can win this tournament. Even if we lose today or Sunday, we might. Also, seven Huskies won postseason conference awards. See here for more details.

Field Hockey: The Huskies will be hosting the First and Second Rounds of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday and Sunday. At 11:30 AM on Saturday UConn will take on the Princeton Tigers. At 2:00 PM on the same day, Penn State faces Northeastern. The winners square off at 2:00  on Sunday. The winner of that game advances to the National Semifinal on November 18th in Louisville. Any UConn games during the semifinals or final will be on All-Access free.

Jeremy Lamb looks to lead
the Huskies.
Men's Basketball: Huskies open up the season tonight vs. Columbia. It should be a blowout. We're ranked #4 in the nation, and they are at the bottom of the Ivy League. Kemba may be gone, but this is still an excellent team. I just hope we have the team chemistry to win games. That's my biggest concern.

Women's Basketball: The women open on Sunday vs. Holy Cross. Another blowout. We beat them by 80 last year. We  may not have Maya Moore, but we're still a Top 5 program. And the fact that we're surprised to "only" be #5 should say something about how great our program is.
