    No. 89 in the books

    The University of Connecticut's women's basketball team is on an 89-game win streak, the longest in NCAA Division I basketball history. With its 89th victory, UConn passed the 1971-74 UCLA men's program, which won 88 straight. UConn hasn't lost a game since the 2008 national semifinals and has played more than 600 games since losing back-to-back games. The Huskies are the only team in NCAA Division I women's basketball history to finish consecutive seasons as undefeated national champions.

    The No. 1-ranked Huskies women's basketball team topped the 88-game winning streak set by John Wooden's UCLA men's team from 1971-74, beating Florida State 93-62 on Tuesday night. Playing with the relentlessness that has become its trademark -- and would have made Wooden proud -- Connecticut blew past the Seminoles (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 22 AP) as it has so many other teams in the last 2 1/2 years.

    "I don't want my team to compare themselves to anyone," UConn coach Geno Auriemma said afterward. "I'm not John Wooden and this isn't UCLA. This is Connecticut and that's good enough."

    Maya Moore had a career-high 41 points and 10 rebounds and freshman Bria Hartley added 21 points for the Huskies, who have not lost since April 6, 2008, in the NCAA tournament semifinals. Only twice during the record run has a team come within single digits of UConn -- Stanford in the NCAA championship game last season and Baylor in early November.

    When the final buzzer sounded, UConn players sprinted across the floor to shake hands with the student section as fans held up "89" signs and "89" balloons bobbed in the stands behind center court. Two other fans raised a banner that read "The Sorcerer of Storrs" -- a play on Wooden's nickname, "The Wizard of Westwood."

    Who will end this historical feat of UCONN ?????? hopefully no one for a while...
