Field hockey defeats Syracuse to win Big East tournament

UConn rallied from behind to secure the 4-3 win.

UConn field hockey recovered from a 3-1 deficit to beat Syracuse 4-3 and win the Big East Field Hockey Tournament yesterday. In winning the Huskies avenged a loss to the Orange in the regular season-finale that cost the Huskies the Big East regular season title.

In winning the Huskies earned the league's auto-bid for the NCAA tournament and they will learn where they'll be seeded on Tuesday. It seems possible that the Huskies and Orange could have one last grudge match to settle the season series -- coming into the game the Orange were ranked No. 3 in the country (UConn was ranked fifth), so a Final Four (or Championship) matchup isn't out of the realm of possibility.
