A New Record
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.
