73NCAA BB90 in a Row
Date / Dec 28, 2010
Location / Maples Pavilion | Palo Alto, Calif.
Moment / From the fall of 2008 to the last game of 2010, the UConn Huskies didn’t lose a game. Led by Maya Moore, the team captured back-to-back national championships and won 90 games in a row, the longest-ever streak by a Division I basketball team. On December 30, 2010, they lost to Stanford, their first defeat since April 6, 2008.
Impact / Like UCLA’s 88-game win streak in the ‘70s, UConn’s streak was book-ended by losses to the same team. For the Huskies, that team was Stanford, who beat them in the Final Four in 2008 and then again in 2010. UConn would go on to be upset by Notre Dame in the NCAA Tournament, failing to win a third straight title.
