Greenberg And Levene Pace UConn To 1-0 Win at Memphis
In a game of firsts for the UConn men's soccer team, Dylan Greenberg's first career goal supported Scott Levene to a shutout in his first career appearance as the Huskies defeated Memphis, 1-0, on Saturday night at Mike Rose Stadium. The win evens UConn's American Athletic Conference record to 1-1-0 and pushes the Huskies to 3-5-2 overall, while Memphis falls to 0-1-1 in league action and 5-3-2 on the year.

UConn (3-2-3) fell, 1-0, to USF on Saturday at Corbett Soccer Stadium despite putting up 10 shots in the 90-minute match. Nazeem Bartman tallied in the 60th minute and the Huskies couldn't find the equalizer despite holding a 4-to-3 edge in corner kick attempts. The program hasn't dropped three-consecutive matches since 2006 and has only fallen in  three-straight twice under 19th-year head coach Ray Reid.

UConn has won both match-ups against Memphis since the formation of The American, including a 1-0 victory in 2014 behind the first career goal from left back Dylan Greenberg.

Through the most recent NCAA stats release on Sept. 29, UConn checks in at No. 17 in the country with a 0.50 shutout percentage. Additionally, the team's 0.65 GAA is good for 22nd in the nation. Individually, Jake Nerwinski ranks fifth in the conference and 62nd nationally with three total assists, while Scott Levene is 47th with a .793 save percentage.

Memphis enters the tilt with a 1-5-2 overall record, picking up their first win in a 3-1 triumph over Central Arkansas on Wednesday. The team was picked to finish fifth in the league in a vote of the conference's coaches, while forward Hector Cantele was the lone representative on the Preseason All-Conference squad.

The Huskies home match against Providence, originally scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 30, was postponed due to inclement weather. A potential make-up date has not been determined.
