The University of Connecticut women's team set a new NCAA record tonight, winning its 71st consecutive game by beating Notre Dame. The Huskies, who haven't lost since April 6, 2008, broke the record the school set from Nov. 9, 20001-March 11, 2003. UConn has trailed just 86 minutes in the 71 games, and only three times in the second half. UCLA set the men's record, winning 88 in a row in 1971-74.
