The UConn women’s volleyball team went three-for-three at the Dog Pound Challenge in Gampel Pavilion this weekend, but it was no easy sweep for the Huskies. Coming off a string of three 0-3 matches on the road one week earlier, the team brought a fighting spirit that would not relent amidst lost sets or point deficits.
The No. 1 UConn women’s basketball team will begin a stretch of three games in five days by taking on No. 20 California on Friday night at Gampel Pavilion. The five-day period will also include a home game against No. 15 Maryland and a long road trip to play No. 8 UCLA.
“Not ideal, not exactly what we wanted,” UConn head coach Geno Auriemma said of the difficult stretch.
