UConn’s 8th (out of 8) seeded baseball squad has made an improbable run to the Big East Tournament finals after beating Rutgers yesterday 2-1. For those of you too young to remember the Big East is the conference that UConn used to play in until being betrayed by two old friends who think they’re much better than they really are and 7 mediocre basketball-only schools who ruined everything.
In all seriousness, kudos to the baseball team for their perseverance and grit. They overcame a 7-0 defecit to beat USF and forced top-seed Louisville into extra innings before winning in 12, 3-2.
The game is today against 7-seed Notre Dame. Tune in at Noon on ESPNU. GO HUSKIES!!
