By SMW Staff
After 90 consecutive wins, and more than 32 months of non-stop winning the UCONN women’s basketball team lost a game to the women of Stanford University.
None of us reading this today may ever again see in our lifetimes a similar feat. The facts and figures behind the longest winning streak of any NCAA basketball team, men or women, collected a book’s worth of staggering statistics.
Here’s just one: during their 90-game win streak, these remarkable women trailed for a combined total of less than 134 minutes – that’s an average of about 90 seconds per game.
Team roster: Heather Buck (32); Lorin Dixon (30); Stefanie Dolson (31); Caroline Doty (5); Lauren Engeln (12); Kelly Faris (34); Bria Hartley (14); Tiffany Hayes (3); Michala Johnson (25); Maya Moore (23); Samarie Walker (11); Geno Auriemma, head coach; Chris Dailey, associate head coach; Shea Ralph, assistant coach; Marisa Moseley, assistant coach.
