NCAA Semifinals

The 2015 Huskies opened the season with an eight-game winning streak that saw them post four shutouts in that stretch. In the Stanford game, the final one in that run, UConn started a run of 57 consecutive goals, a shutout streak of 572:02 that stretched over 10 games. Princeton’s goal stopped the run, but UConn answered with four goals to stay undefeated and after shutting out Georgetown, the Huskies entered the Big East tournament at 18-0. A pair of wins sent UConn to NCAAs as the #2 seed and they posted their 14th and 15th shutouts of the season in regionals to advance to the semifinals as the only team in the nation without a loss. Although a loss to Syracuse ended the season, behind All-Americans Roisin Upton, Charlotte Veitner, Nina Klein, and Anna Middendorf, UConn defeated their opponents by almost five goals a game, posting a 4.91 difference that ranks as the fifth-highest margin of victory in NCAA Division I history. The Huskies defeated three tournament-bound teams in the regular season in which they captured both the Big East regular season and tournament titles, giving up only 12 goals throughout the year. The Huskies led the nation in scoring average, scoring defense, and margin of victory.
