Only once has Auriemma's program come this close to 100-a home-court winning streak that stood at 99 when an upstart Saint John's team won at Gampel in February 2012, before Connecticut's departure from what was then a highly competitive Big East Conference. Game time is set for 8 p.m. ET and will be televised regionally on SNY. UConn senior Saniya Chong leads the country is assist/turnover ratio with 89 assists and 19 turnovers. It was the only game of her career that she missed and was the product of her slow adjustment to the next level of basketball. Four games remain in the regular season. Geno Auriemma's squad already owns the longest winning streak in Division I college basketball history. SC freshman guard Tyasha Harris, who comes from the same Heritage Christian program that produced former UConn standout Kelly Faris, has at least twice as many assists as turnovers in each of the last five games and an impressive 70/47 assist/turnover ratio.
USC is still a very talented team that's won 21 of 24 games.
On Monday night, the University of CT women's basketball team won its 100th consecutive game in a contested 66-55 win over the University of South Carolina Gamecocks.
Without question, it was the Huskies' best performance of the season. And when Kentucky's men's team reached the Final Four with an undefeated record two seasons ago, few complained that the Wildcats' toughest SEC competition was overmatched 18th-ranked Arkansas. Though that's a mathematical likelihood, it's probably not much comfort to the teams UConn has been beating by scores like 98-65, 91-46, 83-41 or 111-39. "They carried the streak across the finish line".
Auriemma's main priority with this team all along is to have them cut down the nets in Dallas in early April. What would Stewie say right now?' I really had those moments. SC beating the Huskies would be a huge story. And when everything seemed to be going wrong for UConn last night, Gabby just took the game over.
The last time the Huskies lost was on March 12, 2013 when they were beaten by Notre Dame.

Look for Holm to fight at a safe distance, get the jab going, and mix in kicks. "It's not like I've been fighting nobody's". While the event tonight is not almost as star studded, there are still some big names and big fights worth watching.
On Monday, the No. 1 ranked Huskies improved to 25-0 by beating 6th-ranked SC, 66-55, in what some called a hard challenge.
It's going to be quite a challenge for the Gamecocks, but if the pregame is any indication, maybe they're ready to meet that challenge. "I don't think he gets enough credit for what he's done".
"I lose my confidence when I try to play outside of my game, outside of what I know I can do", Williams said. "We are bringing in different personnel". "We had lazy passes, and they made us pay for it", Staley said. "I don't think people who are aspiring to be coaches today could even dream of getting anywhere near that record".
"It wasn't even the number that we got tonight that makes this so special".
Can't forget about the point guard play from freshman Tyasha Harris and Bianca Cuevas-Moore.
Wins against East Carolina, more than any other school during the streak. Still, many eyes will be on Coates and Wilson.
