The latest news and analysis on college and pro women's basketball.

While the basketball nation was watching Connecticut…

Moore89.jpgAs The Guru, HOF sportswriter Mel Greenberg said, Connecticut acted as an eclipse of the basketball world on Tuesday. And rightfully so, setting a NCAA D-I record in winning its 89th consecutive game against No. 22 Florida State.
Next up for UConn is a trip west where the Huskies will play Pacific on Dec. 28 and No. 8 Stanford on Dec. 30 to complete their nonconference schedule. The Huskies, which last lost to the Cardinal in 2008, have a chance to get close to the all-time basketball win streak of 131 set by Wayland Baptist University in the 1950s in the Amateur Athletic Union.
But there were a few other happenings elsewhere, too.
Arizona State defeated No. 16 DePaul while No. 3 Duke handled an impressive No. 4 Xavier team. On the local side, Gonzaga turned a seven-point halftime victory into a 27-point win against BYU, a future West Coast Conference opponent.
And while Seattle University couldn’t get a good start in a road loss to St. Mary’s, Puget Sound coach Loree Payne, a former Washington standout, has the Loggers winning eight consecutive games. Here’s a good feature on her start at UPS.
