If not for the 2014 Stanford defeat, the Huskies could be on a 147-game run. Maybe so, but if someone doesn't get UConn this season, it could be a long, long time.
UConn women's basketball team extended its all-time NCAA record for consecutive wins to 100 in front of a sellout crowd of over 10,000 people in Storrs, Monday night. The Huskies already broke their own win-streak records - which included runs of 90, 70 and 47 games.
