The University of Connecticut Huskies overcame an abysmal first half in which they scored 12 total points and went 10 minutes without scoring to beat the Stanford Cardinal 53-47 at the Alamodome.
It was UConn's 78th consecutive win, and they became the first NCAA women's basketball team to win consecutive national championships with an unbeaten record. Interestingly enough, UConn won the 2002 national title game against Oklahoma in San Antonio with a perfect record as well.
The Huskies get to savor this history and their seventh national championship for a few months before they resume chasing the legendary John Wooden coached UCLA Bruins.
The Bruins won 88 straight games in the 70's before Notre Dame knocked them off . They are only 11 wins shy of passing that mark, and it'll be interesting to see if they can do it.
