The UConn Huskies are going for an NCAA Basketball record 89 consecutive wins tonight when they face #22 Florida St. Head Coach Geno Auriemma has led this team along with star players through the better part of three seasons of perfect basketball. The unrivaled star Huskie this year is Maya Moore, who is unquestionably the best player in Women's College Hoops.
There have been many comparisons made between this squad and the UCLA men's teams whose record they're attempting to break. However those comparisons aren't fair. This is a different sport being played at a different time.
Unfortunately those comparisons are taking away from the spectacular feat these women have accomplished. Being able to show up and play winning basketball (or any sport for that matter) day in and day out, year after year the way these women have is remarkable. They deserve to be recognized on their own. Hopefully they pull it out tonight and can continue their streak so everyone realizes just how special their record is.
