Lacrosse: UConn looks to get past Georgetown to reach Big East final
The third-seeded University of Connecticut women's lacrosse team is set to face No. 2 seed and tournament host Georgetown in the semifinals of the Big East Women's Lacrosse Championship at 8:15 p.m. on Thursday in Washington, D.C.
UConn finished the season 10-6, 5-2 in conference play. This is the Huskies second consecutive appearance in the conference tournament. They clinched the No. 3 seed with a victory of Villanova last weekend. UConn is entering the tournament hot, outscoring its last two opponents by a score of 32-10.
"The team is excited to play (Georgetown) again, it's always a good battle. In the postseason, we start from a fresh slate," coach Katie Woods said. We're all really pumped and getting ready to focus on it," she said.
Woods brought up the experience that UConn has playing Georgetown, as they squared off earlier in the season. Thursday's game will be the second meeting between UConn and Georgetown this season and the 15th time that the two schools have played one another. The Huskies have never beaten the Hoyas, who defeated UConn, 11-10, on April 11 at the George J. Sherman-Family Sports Complex.
Georgetown finished the regular season at 9-7 overall and 6-1 in Big East play.
