UConn's Maya Moore takes it to the hoop.

The UConn women's basketball team won its 88th straight game Sunday to tie the mark set by coach John Wooden and his UCLA men's teams from 1971-74. Tiffany Hayes scored 26 points, and Maya Moore added 22, to help the top-ranked Huskies rout No. 11 Ohio State 81-50 in the Maggie Dixon Classic at Madison Square Garden. You may remember that UConn went undefeated for the second straight season last year and clinched the national title. While that record is unparalleled in women's basketball, UConn is also on the cusp of breaking John Wooten's record, which would be a major coup. If you thought the Huskies couldn't get any better or break any more records, think again.
