STORRS, Conn. - Senior University of Connecticut field hockey standout Alicia Angelini has been selected, along with 37 other seniors from around the country, to play in the 2012 National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division I Senior Game as announced by the NFHCA on Wednesday.

The Senior Game is scheduled to be played on Saturday, November 17 at 3 p.m. at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va.

This year's Senior Game participants will face off against the U.S. Women's National Team, which includes former Husky stars Melissa Gonzalez and Rayell Heistand, as well as against each other in a series of four 25-minute sessions.

Angelini is fourth on the team with 14 points and five goals. She has converted on all three of her penalty stroke opportunities while anchoring a defense that allows just 1.04 goals per game. The Huskies finished the 2012 regular season with a 16-2 record and are ranked No. 5 nationally heading into the postseason.

The Huskies are back in action on Friday, November 2 when the team travels to Louisville, Ky. to take on the Cardinals in the semifinals of the 2012 BIG EAST Tournament. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
