Photos: UConn Women's Basketball Team Sets National Winning Streak Record

The University of Connecticut women's basketball team set a new record for the longest college basketball winning streak after posting their 89th consecutive game last night. UConn surpassed the record of 88 consecutive wins set by the UCLA men's basketball team in the early 1970's. The UConn women, coached by Geno Auriemma, beat their 89 opponents by an average of 33 points per game.
