Mississippi State shocked Connecticut in the women’s Final Four in Dallas on Friday night, snapping the Huskies’ 111-game winning streak.
No. 2 seed Mississippi State shocked No. 1 seed Connecticut in the women’s Final Four in Dallas on Friday night, snapping the Huskies’ record 111-game winning streak.
The Bulldogs won 66–64 in overtime on a buzzer-beating jumper by Morgan William.
UConn’s previous loss came on Nov. 17, 2014, to Stanford. In January, UConn broke its own NCAA record with its 91st consecutive victory. The Huskies then won their 100th consecutive game back in February and were attempting to close out their second straight undefeated season and win a fifth consecutive national title.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, a Mississippi State alum, was on hand for the game and reacted to the buzzer beater.
Mississippi State is playing in its first-ever women’s Final Four. The Bulldogs advance to play No. 1 South Carolina, which defeated No. 2 Stanford earlier on Friday, in Sunday’s national championship game.
