ORLANDO - Wins by senior Jeb Buchanan, junior Brian Hughes, senior Matthew Dziubina, and freshman Chris Wiatr lifted the University of Connecticut men's golf team to a 4-2 victory over Seton Hall Monday in the second round of The Match Play competition at the Reunion Resort in Orlando, Fla.

The Huskies rebounded from a first-round loss to Central Arkansas earlier Monday with a solid effort against the Pirates, starting with Buchanan (Loudonville, N.Y.), UConn's No. 1 player, who posted a 1 Up victory over Seton Hall's Brandon Park.

Hughes (Fairfield, Conn.) recorded his second win of the competition as he dominated Seton Hall's Troy Spencer for a 5 & 4 victory, while Dziubina (Shelton, Conn.) also captured his second win of the day with a 3 & 2 triumph over Seton Hall's Derrick Kim. Wiatr (Woodbury, Conn.), who halved his first match, gave the Huskies their final point with a 2 & 1 win over the Pirates' Gary Dunne.

The Huskies narrowly missed a sweep over Seton Hall when senior Matt Carroll (Heathrow, Fla.) and senior Adam Vaccari (Winsted, Conn.) lost 1 Up matches to Seton Hall's John Dawson Neufeld and Marc Kunesch, respectively.

Earlier Monday, Hughes and Dziubina had victiories in a 3.5-2.5 loss to Central Arkansas.

Hughes defeated Central Arkansas' David Morago, 1 up, and Dziubina stopped the Bears' Chris Cooke, 3 & 2, while UConn's Wiatr halved his match against Central's Josh Sims, accounting for the UConn points.

Central Arkansas' Pep Angels defeated Buchanan, 4 & 2, while the Bears' Antonio Costa beat Carroll, 2 & 1, and Austen Moix stopped UConn's Vaccari, 4 & 2.

UConn continues The Match Play Tuesday at Reunion Resort as the competition concludes with two more rounds.
