It might seem counterintuitive to focus on one player on a night when UConn achieved the ultimate team milestone, but Maya Moore made the streak possible, separating herself in UConn and women's basketball lore.
UConn tied the UCLA men's streak of 88 straight victories Sunday. But instead of comparing two teams from different eras (not to mention genders), how do the Huskies match up against one of college's other great streaks?
The constant in the remarkable winning streaks from the UCLA men and the Connecticut women was the maestro in charge. And far more than the number 88 make Geno Auriemma and John Wooden kindred spirits.
