So we may have disappeared for the last few days (apologies), but UConn did not. In fact, its been quite an eventful few days for the Huskies. Here's your roundup:

First up, the women's basketball team visited Barack Obama at the White House, where he said they were the best team in sport's last year, "by far." Nice words from the president.

Of course, that best team in sports title might only count if you do not take into consideration the UConn baseball team, which may have lost its win streak, but is still rolling. The team beat South Florida yesterday, 10-3, winning the weekend series against the Bulls. The team is now 7-3 since they had their win streak snapped two weeks ago. Their 18-5 Big East record (41-11 overall) has them in first place in the Big East, though Louisville is close behind them at 18-6.

As good as the baseball team has been this year, the track team has arguably been better. The squad won its first ever IC4A championship this weekend, and that was without the help of friend of the blog (and Big East field athlete of the year) Sean Smith. Next up for the team is the NCAA regionals in late May, followed by the national championships in early June.

Finally, lets not forget to recognize Syracuse University, which got a whopping 12 students out of its graduating class to participate in the lamest graduation protest ever.
