UCLA's 88-game winning streak had just been ended by Notre Dame in 1974 when Coach John Wooden was asked how long he predicted the streak would stand.

I have no idea how long it will be before somebody else wins that many. I know it takes at least three years,” he replied.

The Connecticut women's team can break the record for most consecutive wins in college basketball tonight when they take on the Florida State. We will have live coverage of the game throughout the night right here on the Fabulous Forum blog. Bookmark this link to keep track of how UConn is doing.
