UConn women's basketball team breaks own NCAA record with 91st straight win
Geno Auriemma's UConn team beats SMU 88-48 to break record.
Geno Auriemma's UConn women's basketball team won its 91st consecutive game on Saturday to once again rewrite the history books. It broke a record previously held by the UConn team under Auriemma that stretched for 90 games that lasted from the 2008 to 2010 seasons.
They left no doubt about the game at hand and didn't show any signs of looking ahead past the record, either. The Huskies opened the game on a 21-0 run and crushed SMU on the road, 88-48.
After Auriemma's UConn team won the national title last April and extended the streak to 75 wins, many thought the streak would not last much longer. The 2017 schedule on paper was grueling -- and without Breanna Stewart, the team had some holes that would be left in her place.
Yet after wins over eight top 25 teams through 16 games -- including three over top-five teams -- it may be safe to start wondering again when this team will lose. The last time it happened was in November of 2014.
The Huskies' next eight games are against currently unranked opponents, so it's entirely possible that a chance to make it 100 straight wins will be a showdown with No. 5 South Carolina on Feb. 13.
Said Auriemma after the game: "Some things you just can't really explain, you just have to enjoy it."
