This past weekend, both the men’s and women’s quarterfinal and semifinal games were played at the University of Hartford, bringing big crowds and lots of excitement. Our student section was very supportive and included the Red Army, a new student fan group, who had some very creative chants.
On Friday night, we played UNH, and after a slow first half, we cruised to a 68-35 win. At practice Saturday afternoon we prepared for our semifinal game against Stony Brook, which we knew would be physical and come down to a toughness battle! Basketball is a physical game, and this was evident on Sunday afternoon. But we won the toughness battle and the game, with our bench outscoring Stony Brook’s bench 44-0 and our team winning the rebounding battle 42-29.
Now we have this week to prepare for the championship game against Vermont on Saturday night. I hope all of our fans can join us as we look for another championship this season. Click Here to Purchase Tickets
