A New Record

This might not be interesting to those who visit just for photography, so you can come back tomorrow, OK?

Last night at the XL Center in Hartford, the UConn women's basketball team won their 89th straight game, 93-62 over Florida State.  That is two straight undefeated seasons and national championships (39 games each) and the first 11 games this year. 

The previous record for any college basketball team -- men or women -- was 88 consecutive wins back in the 1970s at UCLA coached by the legendary coach John Wooden.  Tuesday night put the UConn women's team at the top. 

UConn is led by senior Maya Moore, who scored 41 points in this game, her career high.

The game was sold out so I couldn't go.  The photos are taken off the television screen, so credits go to ESPN2.

Holiday season photos resume tomorrow.

You got some great shots off the TV! I bet this was a very exciting game to attend! Those girls are going to be getting all kinds of offers if they haven't already.

Without the titles and the logos I wouldn't have ever thought that these shots were taken from the TV.
Great girls, my compliments for the tram!

Good news! It's always nice when your team wins.

I do watch TV and am on the Internet, so I do occasionally see stuff like this and I thought the UConn girls did a magnificent job even if they had to beat FSU!

Now, about strokes. The only stroke your going to give me is one on each par 5 - when we play golf!
