If the UConn Huskies women’s soccer team wants to advance to the quarterfinals of the 2015 NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament, they are going to need a defensive effort like they got on Friday night vs the Notre Fighting Irish.
The UConn women’s soccer defense held strong all night and took advantage of their opportunities. Goalkeeper Emily Armstrong and the back four in front of her didn’t let anything past them.
Standing in their way of a quarterfinal game is the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, who beat the Huskies 2-0 earlier in the season.
Watch and/or listen below as UConn head coach Len Tsantiris, Rachel Hill and Armstrong talk about what they need to do to beat the Scarlet Knights.
At 6’7″, UConn men’s basketball sophomore Daniel Hamilton has an advantage over shorter players who have to guard him. And when head coach Kevin Ollie has him bring the ball up, he uses that height as well as his passing ability to set up his teammates.
Through two games, Hamilton leads the team with 15 assists. After last night’s 85-66 win, New Hampshire head coach Bill Herrion compared to the great Magic Johnson.
Watch and/or listen below as Herrion, Ollie as well as Hamilton and Rodney Purvis talk about Hamilton’s passing abilities.
At 5-5, the UConn Huskies football team has a chance to do something it hasn’t done since the 2010 season. And that’s become bowl eligible.
As UConn football coach Bob Diaco continues to build his program, getting bowl eligible can help the programs in many different ways.
With the last regular season game on November 28 at Temple, Diaco would be able to hold practices up until bowl bids are announced if the Huskies were bowl eligible. And if they made a bowl game, he would get another 15 practices as part of preparing for the game.
Extra practices like these would huge for a young team. And that’s not even mentioning recruiting.
Most importantly, it would be a great way to send the senior class off to the real world.
Watch and/or listen below as Diaco, Tommy Hopkins and Max DeLorenzo talk about what it means to become bowl eligible.
