UConn Sets College Win Streak Record

words_Nick Engvall

If Coach John Wooden and the UCLA Bruins were considered the greatest college basketball dynasty of all time, then the UConn Huskies and Coach Geno Auriemma just pushed them out of the top spot completely. The UConn Huskies to many, have already been far and above the best college basketball dynasty of all time. Last night with their record breaking 89th consecutive win, is there any room for argument?

UConn Sets College Basketball Win Streak RecordThe 1st ranked Huskies led by Maya Moore’s career high 41 points, defeated the 20th ranked Florida State Seminoles 93-62 in front of national TV, press, and the home town fans that have been cheering them on all along the way. The Huskies continued their win streak in a similar fashion to how it has been the whole time, never really giving their opponent a chance to make a run.

Connecticut’s team first approach has been nearly unstoppable for the last ten years. In the last nine years they’ve had consecutive win streaks of 70 consecutive and now 89 consecutive and counting. In that time they’ve racked up 6 national titles. They’ve made an appearance in the NCAA tournament every single year that they’re most notable player Maya Moore has been alive and won regular season conference titles in 18 of those 21 years.

With Greg Wooden, grandson of the legendary John Wooden, in attendance the Connecticut Huskies women’s basketball team graciously and professionally beat the record set by the UCLA Bruins men in 1974. Coach Auriemma and the team gave their respects to what John Wooden and UCLA had accomplished, but there was no question that this accomplishment was in a class of its own.

While many are saying that you can’t compare the men’s and women’s game of college basketball, it seems more fitting to give credit where credit is due.

The Connecticut Huskies are the greatest college basketball dynasty in history.
