And with the 66-55 victory against the University of SC on February 13, 2017, the Huskies’ record now stands at 100 wins and counting.
The Huskies have won 99 consecutive games and remain the unanimous choice atop the poll Monday.
Days since the Huskies’ last loss to Stanford on November 17, 2014.
In blowout fashion, UConn won its fourth straight national championship over Syracuse, giving Auriemma his record-setting 11th NCAA title as head coach. Samuelson was important later in the game, scoring 17 of her 23 total points after halftime.
So much went right for SC, but not enough.
No. 1 CT got 26 points from Gabby Williams, holding off No. 6 SC 66 to 55.
“Actually, our team always thought we would find a way to win”. Nearly two full years ago, a No. 1 SC team came to Storrs boasting the nation’s best defense.
OneUp Sports called to ask about the UConn women’s basketball team and its historic winning streak. Of the 100 wins, 25 were by 50 points or more.
Though they’ve managed to keep the streak that was built on the back of Breanna Stewart’s remarkable career going, the Huskies haven’t dominated as much as they’re used to. But the biggest glaring factor for SC was the guard play, something we at GABA noted had to be rock solid in our game preview. Boasting two winning streaks of over 90 games in the past decade and now having one reach the triple-digits is phenomenal work – especially in a league where parity has supposedly increased in recent years.
The win is UConn’s 60th straight at home.
The Connecticut Huskies have won 100 consecutive games under coach Geno Auriemma and show no signs of slowing down. Let’s put things in perspective – how numerous 100 games would the Huskies have won with no bench scoring? “They can be more offensive minded from more spots than they were past year”.
Kiara Perry had 11 points to lead SMU (13-11, 4-7), which made 15 of its 61 shots from the floor (24.6 percent).
The Huskies are the first team in NCAA basketball history to have 100 wins in a row. They faced an Oregon State team that featured three current or future WNBA players in the Final Four and crushed them, 80-51.
What’s especially scary for the rest of the country is that UConn may only get better the next several years.
Late in the first half, SC was shooting 50 percent from the field, something only one other CT opponent had accomplished all season.
“I think we did a really good job this semester especially staying focused in the classroom and understanding that our schedule was a lot of road travel so when study time came around when we were on the road, making sure that we got work done and everybody pulled it out”, Nurse said.
