Throughout the conference tournament, the UConn baseball team has seen production from unexpected places. Whether it is a walk off from a player, David Langer, who had four hits on the season to that point or a steady stream of extra-base knocks from a freshman and a transfer, Kyler Fedko and Paul Gozzo, respectively.
The last time UConn was at Dunkin’ Donuts Park, things didn’t exactly go as planned. UConn dropped a mistake-filled three-game series against Cincinnati, kicking off the mid-season malaise that they’re still trying to escape.
The Huskies are just one game over .500 in the three weeks since then, and they’re hoping that this time, a series in front of a Hartford crowd can change their fortunes once again.
Michigan State. Arkansas. Auburn. Memphis. Villanova. Temple.
And now Wichita State.
The UConn men’s basketball team (12-13, 5-7 The American) took their seventh 20-point loss of the season Saturday night. In the program’s 115-year history, the Huskies had never lost by six times that many. That changed two weeks ago in Philadelphia
The Huskies’ defense was relentless, but their style on the fastbreak was evident. Point guard Crystal Dangerfield, back in the lineup after a bout with shin splints, dropped a behind-the-back dime for fun. Gabby Williams, known for her full-court passing, launched passes that would leave Aaron Rodgers’ jaw on the floor.
