UConn Women Extend Streak with 93-62 Defeat of Florida State
By DOUG FEINBERG, AP Basketball Writer
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.
