UConn's streak at 19 and counting

There are few sure things in the sports world but the UConn women's basketball team winning its first game of the season is about as close to a gimme as you're going to get.

The last time the Huskies lost their first regular-season game came in 1995 with Louisiana Tech emerged with an 83-81 overtime victory in the Hall of Fame Tipoff Classic in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Last night's 102-43 win over UC Davis is the 19th straight victory in season openers and each one of them are by at least 11 points. The victory moved the Huskies into a tie for the longest active winning streak with Notre Dame and Iowa State. However, the tie doesn't figure to last for long since Iowa State plays USC Upstate on Sunday.
