Yes. Cover it -- put it in a container, ideally -- and you can keep it for at least 4 days.

Does the same hold true for cut-up peeled sweet-potatoes?

One of the farms at our wintertime farmers' market sells, in addition to whole squash, bags of peeled and seeded butternut squash segments. I bought some last year on a few occasions, and it kept well for several days in the fridge in its plastic wrapping.

Sweet potatoes brown after cutting, so I wouldn't store them this way.
