The Huskies’ six hits were more than their previous two games combined, but they once again only had one runner cross the plate and ultimately fell 2-1.
As the fall semester is coming to a close for students, college basketball is just hitting its stride as most teams have played eight games at this point. While there is still time for growth, the power amongst The American has seemingly been set, with two of the top teams already carrying sizeable winning streaks.
The last time we checked in with UConn’s conference opponents, they were just getting their feet wet with the rest of the college basketball world, most with only one or two games under their belt. Over halfway through non-conference play, we might not be able to draw concrete conclusions about quality yet, but some teams have gotten off to hotter starts than others.
Well, we’re a week into October and a good portion into the 2018 college football season, so you all know what that means.

UConn was up 6-4 in the top of the ninth inning, with two men on base and just two outs remaining to get the monkey off their back this Sunday against Houston. The Huskies had lost a devastating doubleheader to the Cougars on Friday in front of their largest crowd at Dunkin Donuts Park since they started playing there in 2016, and were looking to save face back in Storrs.
