HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - One of the biggest streaks in sports now
belongs to the UConn women's basketball team.
     
The No. 1-ranked Huskies topped the 88-game winning streak by
John Wooden's UCLA men's team from 1971-74, beating No. 22 Florida
State 93-62 on Tuesday night.
     
Maya Moore had a double-double with a career-high 41 points and
10 rebounds, and Bria Hartley added 21 points for the Huskies, who
haven't lost since April 6, 2008, in the NCAA tournament
semifinals. Only twice during the record run has a team come within
single digits of UConn - Stanford in the NCAA championship game
last season and Baylor in early November.
     
It is one more chapter of history for UConn, and perhaps the
grandest. The Huskies already own seven national titles and four
perfect seasons, and they've produced a galaxy of stars that
includes Rebecca Lobo, Diana Taurasi, Jennifer Rizzotti, Sue Bird
and Tina Charles.
