UConn Women’s Streak an Amazing Feat

The University of Connecticut women’s basketball team pulled off a feat that probably will not be matched.

Eighty-nine (89) consecutive wins.

The most impressive part about that streak is that all but two of those victories had been by double-digit margins.  That is the type of domination that is unheard of.

Sure, there are detractors out there.  A lot of folks are saying that since it occurred in women’s sport, why should we give a damn?  Others make the mistake of comparing UConn’s streak to UCLA’s streak of 88.  And some folks just plain despise head coach Geno Auriemma.

While I can understand folks not liking Auriemma (though I love the guy and really enjoyed his interview on “Pardon the Interruption” last night), I think people should recognize UConn’s streak as one of the all-time greats.

To witness a team in ANY sport doing this is one of the most awesome things I have ever seen.

If anything, this winning streak is bringing more attention to women’s college basketball.  People love dynasties and dominating teams.  UConn women’s team has both of those characteristics.

The best part about this is the UConn women does not appear to be on the losing end anytime soon.  Maybe they can stretch the streak out to over 100?  Now THAT would be more than impressive…

    Hi there and welcome to word press. Sports usually arn’t my thing, but I found
    this article on women’s basketball interesting. I can’t help but wonder why these
    girls are so impossibily successful – so many factors contribute to odds like
    this, and I can’t help but thinking that this winning streak may be a result of
    Connetcicut university perhaps choosing to take this far more seriousily as
    you said – then the other teams. I imagine they focused their stratigies
    on winning – and it allowed them to roll straight over institutions that
    had womens basket ball – just to have it?
