As my symbolic tear-off calendar to the right illustrates, the University of Connecticut women's basketball team is now at 87 straight wins, after tonight's 79-47 victory over Marquette. The Huskies are now just one win from tying the overall Division I college basketball record for longest winning streak, 88 games, set by the UCLA men from 1971-1974.

UConn's attempt to tie the record will have to wait a little while, however, as the team is on a 10-day break for final examinations. The Huskies' next game will be on Sunday, December 19 against Ohio State, in the Maggie Dixon Classic at New York City's Madison Square Garden.
