And Counting: How Discipline Drives The UConn Huskies

And Counting: How Discipline Drives The UConn Huskies

UConn won its 100th game in a row on Monday night in Storrs when it turned away sixth-ranked SC 66-55. Later this week the Harlem Globetrotters will come to XL, one of the only teams in the history of the sport at any level with a longer winning streak than UConn's. UConn joins the club with 100 and counting, making them the first team in history, both men's and women's basketball, to make history like that.

Those people are wrong. "The men's game had about a 30- to 40-year head start on the women's game, just from when it started, and right about that time in their history you had the UCLA dynasty".

Gabby scored a career high 26 points while going 10-19 from the floor.

It makes this group the ideal group to reach a number like 100. It didn't matter who the opponent was. But the biggest glaring factor for SC was the guard play, something we at GABA noted had to be rock solid in our game preview. "She's done it in the biggest games against the best teams", Auriemma said. Nurse, who has been dealing with an ankle injury in recent games, only played 12 minutes in the first half.

Through it all, the only thing CT has done is win. And so, from that aspect, I think it's a good thing.

Still, folks will probably try to pick the Huskies apart. He built this year's schedule - as he does many practices - to test his team, expecting them to fail before solving a challenge. But in the case of the Lady Huskies, the competition has been pretty darn good. With 6:35 remaining in the third quarter, they were within two points of a juggernaut that had won 99 consecutive games.

The amusing thing is, the Huskies haven't failed yet, winning their first 25 games against the nation's best.

Still, the Huskies survived the frantic final seconds of the season opener against Florida State and grew through wins against Baylor, Maryland, Notre Dame and Texas that were, by and large, more convincing than fraught. One reason this CT team has greatly outperformed the regressing form expected of them this year is the chasm between what a 5-foot-11 interior player is supposed to be, and the Kawhi Leonard-level season Williams is having.

And really, that's what is most impressive about this streak. Just two of UConn's past 100 victories have even come close to coming down to the wire. "I just think it is so much about what UConn has accomplished over the years and how each year it is a new group but we want the same thing, we all want to be better, we all want to come together".

For almost 24 minutes Monday night, SC had cracked the code. The Huskies came away victorious in each one. South Carolina's strength was its size, A'ja Wilson and Alaina Coates the twin hearts of a lineup that had produced 223 more rebounds than their opponents, opponents who had committed 95 more fouls than the Gamecocks. The Gamecocks actually led by one late in the second quarter, but the Huskies ended the first half on a 7-0 run and then methodically extended their lead the rest of the way. And so that SC offense spun its wheels, stuck in the 40s well into the fourth quarter. But then the Huskies did what they always do. ". It's hard, and I don't like to point out one or two players, but she's a force". They'd given their absolute best.

Back to back baskets by Williams gave the Huskies the early four-point lead.
