By SMW Staff

UCONN 2010 Womens Baskeball TeamWith less than 26 hours left to 2010 the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team experienced something they hardly ever knew:

A defeat.

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.

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.
