Stanford women snap UConn's winning streak at 90

STANFORD, Calif. — Top-ranked Connecticut's record 90-game winning streak is over.

The Huskies never led and were beaten by No. 9 Stanford 71-59 Thursday night, ending a run that drew national attention to women's basketball.

Stanford was the last school to beat the Huskies, in the 2008 NCAA semifinals.

Jeanette Pohlen hit five 3-pointers on the way to a career-high 31 points and the Cardinal (9-2) had the Huskies' number at last — a huge number at that. Stanford won its 52nd straight at Maples Pavilion in a rematch of last season's NCAA title game won 53-47 by two-time defending national champion UConn.

Last week, the Huskies (12-1) topped the 88-game winning streak set by John Wooden's UCLA men's team from 1971-74 by beating No. 22 Florida State 93-62, then won their 90th in a row this week at Pacific.
