What Had Happened Was: 2/14/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The University of Connecticut Huskies came, they saw, and they beat visiting sixth-ranked South Carolina at Harry A. Gampel Pavilion, 66-55, to win their 100th-straight game. This season alone, UConn has defeated six teams ranked in the top eight: Baylor, Florida State, Maryland, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Texas.
In January, the Huskies bested the second-longest streak in college basketball, which they also owned, of 90 consecutive wins. In addition to that streak, UConn had runs of 70- and 47-straight wins.
