Last weekend, they got started with wins over two Big East rivals — then-No. 20 Louisville, 11-6, and Connecticut, 19-0 — before beating UMBC, 13-7, Wednesday to improve to 5-5. That provides a little momentum heading into the heart of their Big East schedule with No. 8 Georgetown on April 6 and a trip to No. 7 Notre Dame on April 12.
