Georgia Tech Snaps UConn's 240 Consecutive Win Streak Against Unranked Teams

Connecticut (5–2) entered its game on Thursday with 240 consecutive victories all-time against unranked opponents. Without its star Paige Bueckers—who is dealing with a tibial plateau fracture—the Yellow Jackets (6–2) broke the Huskies' streak in a  57–44 win.

With the win, the Yellow Jackets earned their first win against the Huskies as UConn came into the game with a 2–0 record all-time against Georgia Tech. Prior to Thursday's win, the two teams last played against each other in 2010.

The Huskies had not scored less than 45 points in a game since February 2006 when UConn scored 42 against Rutgers.
