3. CONNECTICUT: Huskies make statement in Florida


Looking to erase memories of a disappointing end to the 2006 season, the Connecticut men's team spent spring break in Florida, where it went 3-1 in a very successful display against strong opposition.

The Huskies opened with a 3-1 win over 2006 NCAA Division I semifinalist Virginia. Jamaican O'Brian White scored two goals and Finnish midfielder Toni Stahl added a third goal on a late breakaway.

UConn then split a doubleheader, falling to MLS expansion team Toronto FC, 4-0, and beating English club London United, 3-1, behind two goals from Jamaica international Akeem Priestley. In its final match of the trip, UConn defeated the U.S. U-18 national team, 2-0. White scored both goals on assists by Dori Arad and Chukwudi Chijindu.
