Women's Basketball: No. 1 UConn routs UC Davis, moves to 10-0
The No. 1 UConn women’s basketball team proves week in and week out to have more depth than the game before. With only six healthy players this week, the Huskies still managed to defeated UC Davis with ease, 97-37, cruising to an undefeated 10-0 on the season.
Football: Huskies host Memphis to end season
A deeply unsatisfying season will come to an end for the UConn football team come Saturday evening at Rentschler Field. But despite the Huskies’ poor open to the year and 2-9 record, they have one thought on their minds: finish strong.

Sitting in the press box for the football game against Rutgers on Nov. 30, I found it difficult to handle what I was watching.
Recaping the semester that was in UConn sports
Part of the luxury of being a UConn student is the great sports programs this school has to offer, and the fall semester has given us numerous occasions to feel proud to be Husky. So let us take a look back at some of the best moments in UConn athletics this semester.

These five players stood out the most in UConn Athletics during the fall semester.
Column: ‘Tis the season for gold and goals
It’s that special time of year again, and no I’m not talking about Christmas and New Year’s. It’s almost time for the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi Russia.
Women's Basketball Notebook: UConn destroys UC Davis in transition game
HARTFORD – Back and forth they went, almost like there was a friendly wager on who could manage the higher tally. Brianna Banks, Bria Hartley and Moriah Jefferson were relentless, swiping at the ball and taking it the other way in transition almost at will.
Column: Here’s to missing out
There has been enough talk about UConn’s last-second win over Florida Monday night to fill an entire book.
Between the press coverage, social media chatter and recaps the day after, it’s already looking like Monday night will go down as one of the most exciting regular season wins for the Huskies in program history.
Column: Western Conference week that was
This past week was one of the most exciting weeks we have seen in the NBA regular season in quite some time. It had everything from walk-off buzzer beaters to 27-point comebacks to the possible building of a new rivalry.
Column: Weak Eastern Conference keeping struggling, Rose-less Bulls in hunt
Aside from the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat, mediocrity has been the theme of the Eastern Conference. An astonishing 12 out of the 15 teams in the conference have a losing record, with the Pacers (16-2), Miami (14-4) and Washington (9-9) as the exceptions. The most disappointing part of the season is what has happened to 7-9 Chicago.
Column: Predicting the BCS shakedown
The BCS only has one more year in its reign over NCAA football and it looks like it’s going to be interesting. Auburn defeated the bully on the block, Alabama, last week on quite possibly the greatest play in college football without a band on the field. Now, nobody knows who should play in the championship.
Column: Shabazz Napier: The man who makes the Huskies go
There’s no such thing as an early season All-America team, but if there were, it’d be impossible to keep UConn’s Shabazz Napier off the list.
In the latest exhibit of Napier single-handedly preserving the Huskies’ undefeated record, the senior point guard went for 26 points on 9 of 15 shooting, including the game-winning buzzer beater, to lead No. 12 UConn to a 65-64 win over No. 15 Florida Monday night at Gampel Pavilion.
Column: Cooper Manning doesn’t play, but impacts younger brothers
The Manning family is one of the most powerful and well-known football families of their time. Some may even argue that they are the “First Football Family” of America. With Archie Manning as the leader of the pack and his two MVP, Super Bowl-champion sons at his side, more often than not Cooper Manning, the eldest of the three sons, is overlooked.
My dad and I watched “The Book of Manning” over break and seeing Cooper Manning talk about his football experiences changed my perspective. Many people see him as the lame duck older brother who was never able to make it to the pros, but that is probably the farthest from the truth.
Women's Basketball: Huskies face UC Davis in final tune-up before taking on No. 2 Duke
After a jam-packed November schedule, the Huskies’ slate has slowed to a winter crawl.

By now, we all know what happened inside Gampel Pavilion Monday night. Really, there’s only one way to describe it: pandemonium.
Column: Playing teacher in the AFC: Grading every team in the conference
Approximately 16 weeks make up an average college semester, which is somewhat ironic because 16 games equate to a season for an NFL team (a regular season, at least; somewhere, the Browns can be heard saying, “wait, there’s something after the regular season?”). Despite the fact that we still have four weeks to go until the playoffs begin, one can make a pretty accurate assessment of a squad based on the months of September, October and November.
Pelicans’ Davis expected out 4-6 weeks with hand injury
After a great start to the season, No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft Anthony Davis suffered a fractured left hand on an alley-oop play in the first quarter against the New York Knicks.
UConn earns unanimous No. 1 for the first time this season
