NCAA Tournament action is nothing new to head Coach Nancy Stevens and the UConn Field Hockey program. This is their 18th straight NCAA tournament, and the program, which already owns five national championships, is primed to compete for one more.
The Huskies (18-3) are fresh off their eighth-consecutive Big East Conference Tournament Championship and will open tournament play on Friday, Nov. 15, against in-state foe Fairfield. UConn earned the national No. 2 overall seed, granting them rights to host both first and second-round games in Storrs. It is their 17th time hosting.
The Huskies possess all there is to know about competing in the postseason given their storied past.
