The Champs Are Back- UConn women stay perfect

The WNBA may be a bit of a joke/novelty. It is difficult to watch even without the comparison to the men game but that is not the case as it relates to NCAA Woman’s basketball. OK, let me clarify that; the UCONN Huskies Woman’s Basketball Team. They are currently on a streak that ranks about on the same level as the UCLA John Wooden teams of the 70’s. UCONN managed to pull out a 53-47 victory last night versus Stanford to give the Huskies their 78th straight victory and an NCAA Championship at the same time. That is a LONG winning streak. I am sure that there was some worried people in the house last night as they were in tough versus Stanford but still they managed to eak it out.

UCONN coach Geno Auriemma has managed to put together a program that is just consistently dominating and just seems to be able to roll over players and stay at the top year in and year out. He has managed to make UCONN the destination for top level recruits to go. The UCONN team has lost only 2 games in the past 3 seasons. Not too shabby. Regardless of your views about basketball or woman’s sports in general you have to give credit where credit is due and these ladies deserve all the accolades that they get. Led by their coach, they have been lights out and look to add to the 78 game streak next season.

The UConn women’s basketball team has been on an unbelievable run for two years! The way they played in the first half versus Stanford, however, made me believe that their winning streak would come to an end. I can’t wait until next season to see just how much longer their streak will last.

I am 87% sure the UConn ladies are ridiculous.
