The 88th consecutive win would tie the Lady Huskies with the UCLA Bruins coached by the Greatest Coach in History, the late John Wooden. The UCLA’s 88 game streak began in January 1971 and ended January 1974 by a Digger Phelps coached Notre Dame Fighting Irish team. It was record that I thought would last forever. Now Lady Huskies is on the verge of tying Coach Wooden’s Bruins record.

Lady Huskies toughest game during their streak was the game this season against then the number 2 ranked Baylor Lady Bears in which they beat Lady Bears 65 to 64. The Lady Huskies will have to beat the 11th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes to be mentioned as only other team to have an 88-game win streak. Ohio State’s center Jantel Lavender averages nearly 27 points per game, and she may have something to say about becoming Lady Huskies’ 88th victim on their quest to achieve record-tying feat.

Ohio State will have deal with Ms-All Everything, the best college player in the college ranks in Maya Moore. Moore is averaging little over 24 points per game, and is virtually unstoppable. If the Lady Huskies just play their game which almost always has some good defense played then fans should see them tie the record.

UCONN has played in big games before and the pressure has not been a problem; therefore, do not look for the nerves of playing in a monumental game to have any affect on how they approach the game. Lady Huskies is at door knocking will history let them join the UCLA Bruins as the only two teams to win 88 consecutive games. The game will be apart of the Maggie Dixon Classic, and it all begins today, December 19th at 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time in Madison Square Garden, the best stage fit for perhaps the most historic College Basketball event in 39 years.
