Wow! Now this is a BIG win!
The University of Connecticut is feeling rather low this morning as their women's basketball team's epic winning streak was finally broken by the team from Stanford.
Stanford beat the Huskies last night, 71-59, bringing their 90 game winning streak to an end. That's the longest winning streak in NCAA Division I basketball history!
But what's most important is good sportsmanship, which the UConn team definitely showed, even with a loss. The team's coach, Geno Auriemma, spoke to the press after the game and said:
"You’ve got to have good players, you’ve got to get lucky, and all your best players have to play great every night, and we didn’t get that tonight. And … the other team has to have something to do with it. … They made us play bad, and they played well, so they deserve to win."
And you know what? Both teams are winners to us! You don't win 90 games in a row without being a force to be reckoned with! Everyone should be very proud of themselves!
