UConn streak among best in sports history
STORRS, CONN. >> UConn’s women’s basketball team is on the verge of winning its 91st straight game, which would break its own NCAA Division I record that was set between 2008 and 2010. The Huskies play Saturday at SMU, a team that is 10-6 and just lost to Tulane. UConn’s streak ranks among the most impressive in sports, but there are plenty of others. Here’s a look at some of them:
UConn’s women don’t own the longest winning streak in college sports history, or even in the state of Connecticut. That streak belongs to the Trinity men’s squash team. The Bantams won 252 consecutive matches, including 13 national championships, between February 1998 and January, 2012, when they lost to rival Yale.
Wayland Baptist -Women’s basketball
The Huskies also don’t own the longest streak in women’s college basketball. Wayland Baptist in Plainview, Texas, won 131 straight between 1953 and 1958, when the Flying Queens finally lost in the AAU na-
tional semifinals to their rivals, the Nashville Business College. Their streak included four straight AAU national championships.
