    Since nobody else has posted about this, I will: The UConn winning streak.

    And yeah, their coach is kind of a loose cannon, but he's put together an amazing program.

    yeah, i think just because they are girls, it doesnt change the fact that, they won all those times in a row.
    i mean when was the last time you did something 89 times ina  row

    Is it fair to compare them? Heck yes it is. Everything about the game they play is nearly identical except the women's ball is smaller and there is no backcourt violation, but for the most part the playing fields are leveled. UCONN's streak simply lasted longer. Although in UCLA's defense, the men's game probably has a lot more parity compared to the ladies where it seems like there is a handful of great teams and the rest are scattered around, definitely not as many upsets.

    Hawes, are you sure there's no backcourt violation in the women's game? Never knew that haha. But yeah what they are doing is VERY impressive, don't care if they're girls. It's impressive

    I hope it continues so all the Nay-Sayers will shut up. It is very impressive at what the coach and the girls have done so far. Can you compare the 2, yes and no, Same game just a little differant.Also remember UCLA was playing without a shot clock. All in all the record is monserous and will probably never be beat just like John Woodens for UCLA.
    Any bets he gets an offer from a mens College?

    Those "girls" straight ball, and are not finished winning  after breaking UCLA's record. To bad sports are so male dominant.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
