Why this Streak is Different!!

So I’m sure all of you are aware that the Uconn Women’s Baskeball team are in the midst of an 80 game win streak. They just came off a victory against Baylor where the Huskies held on for dear life. There are a lot of people on the women’s side of College Basketball that want the Huskies to fall short of the record they are after. The record for anyone who isn’t aware of it, is the record that John Wooden and his UCLA team set of 88 consecutive victories. As of today the Huskies are 9 games away from making history, if they were to do this the Huskies would be owners of the greatest records in all of sports. What makes this so interesting is how this paticular Uconn team isn’t as dominant as the ones that started this streak. This might be one of the weakest teams that Geno Auriemma has had in some time in Storrs. That is what makes it so great, most everyone on the outside doesn’t realize how young this team is. The beauty of this is that of all the teams Uconn has had, THIS team is the one that is in reach of the record. This young, inexperienced bunch have a lot riding on their shoulders. Outside of Maya Moore and Tiffany Hayes, this team doesn’t have the long list of All-Americans lined up and down it’s rosters. However they do have THE best player in the country in Moore, but it’s going to be tough because the rest of the group is going to HAVE to make plays. Usually Uconn always has at least two great players on one team, this time is different because outside of Maya the rest of the roster is unknown. Do I think they can pull this off?? Yes because I think Geno is the best coach in the country and he has the best player in the country at his disposal. Will it be a cake walk?? Hardly because the coaches don’t play, the team is not battle tested as a unit. If they make it look easy I will be very very very suprised!! Do you think the Huskies will break Wooden’s record?? If they don’t, how many games will they fall short??
