What Had Happened Was: 12/30/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The top-ranked University of Connecticut women’s basketball program is only three victories shy of its own NCAA-record 90 consecutive wins. Huskies guard Kia Nurse (19 points) and forward Gabby Williams (16 points) led the defending national champions to its 30th consecutive road win, another NCAA record, as the Huskies defeated No. 4 Maryland, 87-81, on Thursday night.
UConn nearly squandered a 19-point lead, but forward Katie Lou Samuelson, who battled sickness throughout the game, came through for the Huskies, scoring 17 of her 23 points in the second half.
They simply never lose.

Katie Lou Samuelson felt so sick that she vomited in a bucket.
That didn't stop her from leading UConn to a W: https://t.co/G9oip5tg9B
