Did You Know (or Care): Ballin' chicks

I am probably among the few men who would admit to being fascinated by this, but I have to give credit where credit is due.  Happy New Year, y'all --

Led by the Italian-born Geno Auriemma, the University of Connecticut Lady Husky basketball team recently had its record-setting win streak snapped by the Stanford Lady Cardinal, who were also the last team to have beaten UConn prior to their unprecedented 90-game run.

The Lady Huskies have not lost back-to-back games since the end of the '92-'93 season.  Since that point, they have amassed an unbelievable 573-44 record (prior to 2010-2011) en route to 15 seasons of at least 30 wins, and their seven national titles are second only to the eight won by their chief rival, the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers.
