Now that UConn has broken its own NCAA record with 91 wins in a row, the four-time defending national champion Huskies can look toward trying to extend their other impressive streak. Coach Geno Auriemma and the Huskies spent some extra time in Big D after their record-setting win at SMU. ''We took them there last year to see a game, and the Mavs happen to be in town again,'' Auriemma said.
Mariya Moore took her coach's advice and helped Louisville seal its win against Miami. After grabbing a Hurricanes' miss the Cardinals forward was fouled with 7 seconds left and her team clinging to a three-point lead. Moore hit her first foul shot, but missed the second.
Degbeon, a 6-foot-2 junior, had a career high 13 points while James had 12 and Conde 10 as they won their 15th straight over the Tigers (11-6, 0-5). ''This is really good for our confidence,'' Degbeon said. The Seminoles opened up a 28-4 first-quarter lead and never looked back.
