Century Mark! UConn Women Win Streak Reaches Triple Digits

Posted February 16, 2017

Breanna Stewart was sitting about 20 feet away from where she would have been standing a year ago.

And inside that span, they also won two of their record four national championships.

Here are the X most impressive sports streaks of all-time, starting with the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers. Gabby Williams scored a career-high 26 points and Napheesa Collier added 18 to help the top-ranked Huskies beat No. 6 SC 66-55 on Monday night. UConn (25-0) last lost on November 17, 2014, at Stanford.

"I said this to our players after the game", Auriemma said. Watch how they pass on the move, how hard they cut, how disciplined they space and how they fly up the floor. The Gamecocks entered 5-0 against ranked opponents this season. His Huskies have won 43 conference titles and gone undefeated six times.

The streak is likely to survive into the NCAA tournament. "I knew that if I would have played in that game, I would have messed everything up".

What a run of records and talents for our CT neighbors.

Remarkably, this is UConn's record in their past 148 games - the Huskies had a 47-game streak before the Cardinal handed them their last defeat.

The high-low post offense that the Huskies perfected en route to winning the last four national championships is being run rather well by Coates and Wilson. The Wayland Baptist women's basketball team won 131 straight from 1953-58. We are about to beat Kansas by double digits on their home court.

"The 100-win streak isn't all theirs", Auriemma said of his current team after Monday's win.

WILLIAM BRANGHAM: So, if you take the top three players out of your team - and those are the top three draft picks, as you say - how do they do this?

"How long is it going to be before someone gets anywhere close to that (win streak)", Stringer said.

"I just don't think Alaina had a lot of activity", Staley said.

"I just thought that for 18 minutes of the first half favored our game plan", said SC coach Dawn Staley.

"They are opportunistic", SC coach Dawn Staley said. There's something for college basketball coaches across the country to think about.

Staley's team-as have most ranked teams-presented CT with its usual handicap of a size disadvantage with Wilson and 6-foot-4 Alaina Coates.

The streak is now 10 more games than the second longest winning streak in NCAA history - which was 90 by the Huskies.

With a late spurt, they led 35-29 at the half, took control late in the third quarter and were never threatened in the fourth.

In fact, if not for the 88-86 overtime loss to the Cardinal, UConn might be riding a 148-game win streak and counting.

So in many ways, Monday night's tight victory was so odd. Would the Huskies ever lose?

"It was really just a bad feeling", Williams said.

But if not Monday night, or sometime this season, just when? It's another thing to do it 100 times, when you get the other team's best shot each and every night.
