The University of Connecticut Women’s Basketball Team has set a new record for the longest streak of consecutive wins in NCAA Division I women’s basketball. The UConn Huskies set the record on February 13, 2017, with a 90-45 win over the Southern Methodist Mustangs.
The Huskies have been dominating the women’s college basketball scene for over a decade. They have won 11 National Championships, including four in a row from 2013 to 2016. Their winning streak began on November 23, 2014, with a 96-60 victory over the Creighton Bluejays. Since then, they have won 111 games in a row, breaking their own record of 90 consecutive wins, which they set from 2008 to 2010.
The UConn Huskies are led by head coach Geno Auriemma, who has been with the team since 1985. Auriemma has been named the National Coach of the Year eight times and has coached the U.S.A Women’s National Team to five Olympic gold medals. He has built a program that is considered one of the best in the history of women’s college basketball.
The Huskies have a roster that is stacked with talented players, including junior guard Gabby Williams, senior forward Saniya Chong, and sophomore forward Napheesa Collier. Gabby Williams is a versatile player who can score, rebound, and play defense. Saniya Chong is a sharpshooter from beyond the arc, and Napheesa Collier is a dominant force in the paint.
The UConn Huskies have faced some tough opponents during their winning streak, including teams like the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the South Carolina Gamecocks, and the Baylor Lady Bears. However, they have been able to maintain their composure and come out on top.
The UConn Huskies’ winning streak is a testament to the team’s hard work, talent, and dedication to the sport. They have set a new standard for excellence in women’s college basketball and have inspired a new generation of young players to pursue their dreams.
The UConn Huskies will continue to be a force to be reckoned with in women’s college basketball, and their winning streak will go down in history as one of the greatest accomplishments in sports. Congratulations to the UConn Women’s Basketball Team on their incredible achievement!
