The UConn’s women’s basketball team has been the definition of dominance with 11 NCAA titles since 1994 – including 6 in the last 8 years. This week, the UConn women’s basketball team won their 100th consecutive game. This record streak spans three seasons and includes two national championships with an average margin of victory of 38.4 points.
Remarkably, the streak was preceded by a 47-game streak broken by Stanford in a 88-86 overtime win in 2014. So UConn has gone 147-1 since March 2013.
If the Huskies continue the streak to through the NCAA tournament, they will have won 113 straight games and
- their 5th consecutive NCAA title; and
- their 2nd consecutive perfect season
(a feat they last accomplished in 2010).
The Huskies did not just win 100-games in a row, they buried their opponents- setting NCAA records for victory margins (65-points).
