Two small towns host big time basketball this weekend.
Let's start with the obvious, Uncasville !
The Big East Women's Tournament begins this weekend at Mohegan Sun. The UCONN Women's team looks to continue their dominance in this gym. They will most likely have to go thru the only team to give them a conference loss in years, Villanova. Quarterfinals are Saturday, Semis on Sunday, and the Finals will be Primetime Monday night.
A big Saturday night for the Cardinals of Wesleyan. Middletown hosts this region of the NCAA D3 tournament. Wesleyan looks to move on Saturday night vs RPI in Rd2.
Sunday, the American East Tournament begins. University of Hartford starts their final NCAA D1 run this weekend. Next year, the hawks will be moving to D3. They put their Cinderella shoes on Sunday afternoon vs Albany.
This past week, we lost our CT NEC teams. CCSU lost to Bryant and Sacred Heart lost to LIU. Both teams will most likely not receive a postseason bid.
