Volleyball: Huskies sweep Dog Pound Challenge in weekend of exciting matchups 

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.

Despite failing to make a single 3-pointer all game, playing in front of one of the best sharpshooters ever, the Huskies clawed their way to a 60-58 win over the University of South Florida on Sunday. At halftime, Allen’s No. 34 was retired.
