The University of Connecticut women's basketball team dodged the proverbial bullet tonight in extending its winning streak to 80 games. In holding off No. 2 Baylor, 65-64, in Hartford, the No. 1 Huskies pulled to within eight wins of tying the 88-game winning streak of the UCLA men's program in the early 1970s.

In looking at UConn's schedule, as long as the Huskies keep winning, their chance to capture an 88th straight victory would come on December 19, against Ohio State in the Maggie Dixon Classic at Madison Square Garden.
