What Had Happened Was: 1/5/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The nation’s longest winning streak came to an end on Wednesday night when No. 18 Butler dealt Big East foe and top-ranked Villanova a 66-58 loss — its first since March of last year.
The Wildcats came into the matchup having won their previous 20 games — a streak dating back to last season when the team won six games in the NCAA tournament to capture its second national title. Kicking off the 2016 campaign, Villanova added another 14 victories. While the Wildcats’ streak ended at Butler, the Bulldogs also preserved their 12-game winning streak at home.
