The sports world reacts to UConn's 100th straight victory

"It wasn't even the number that we got tonight that makes this so special". It was the alumni being here. "The thing I'm most proud of day in and day out is that no matter the situation, we don't take games off".

The Huskies (25-0) pulled away behind Gabby Williams, who scored a career-high 26, many of those on slashes to the basket in transition. Joining Bird, Stewart, Moore and Charles were Kalana Greene, Caroline Doty, Asjha Jones and Morgan Tuck. This woman, who was alive before women had the right to vote, felt the need to take part in this moment.

The win is UConn's 60th straight at home. It rocked with a capacity crowd in what was a dogfight for the first half. Here's a sampling of what's being written around the country about Geno Auriemma and the Huskies.

The women have won 17 games during the streak at the XL Center in nearby Hartford. We still have games, watchings for the finals and activities.

The Huskies have a chance to win an unprecedented 100th consecutive game on Monday against No. 6 SC. Actually the first time being held by less than 72, but who's counting.

- CT improved to 5-0 against SC.

Wilson had 17 points, Cuevas-Moore had 11 and Coates 10 for SC. No. 6 SC, which is 21-2 this season, has been ranked in the AP Top 10 for the last three seasons.

UConn has done it twice.

Early on UConn was able to spread the floor allowing Williams and Collier to drive to the basket without shot-blocking threats Coates and Wilson there to protect the ri. "They don't want to be that team".

"I've made the comparison before that UConn is the UCLA of our game", Gobrecht said. They posted a flawless November and December and, in any professional league of any sport that's impressive, but especially in a game such as basketball.

'This 100-win streak isn't theirs but if they win a national championship that's all theirs.

Their competition is almost exclusively themselves at this point, and Auriemma knows it. "Probably everybody in America's going to be cheering for us so I hope they send positive vibes to Storrs", Connecticut.

UConn continues its run at No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball poll while Drake earns its first ranking since 2001. In this season's opener, the streak almost stopped in its tracks. Despite trailing for the majority of the contest, Florida State brought the score to 77-76 after Brittany Brown was fouled on a three-point attempt and drained two of her three free throws. We've seen the Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors come close in recent years with 27- and 24-game winning streaks in a single regular season, respectively.

"I mean, what's so different between 99 and a hundred kinda thing?"

"I thought tonight was gonna be a really, really hard game for us to win, under the best of circumstances", Auriemma said. Such has been the story of the season so far.

"Gampel Pavilion was as loud last night as I've ever heard it", UConn Deputy Spokesman Tom Breen. We just felt like we never wanted to lose, and losing thoughts did not enter our mind. That can be monotonous to track.
