SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) A month into the season Connecticut doesn't look quite as vulnerable as many people thought. Not after beating No. 2 Notre Dame. Not after winning its 83rd straight game.
Two days after narrowly earning the top-ranking in The Associated Press poll, the Huskies easily secured that title on the court with a comfortable 72-61 victory over the Fighting Irish on Wednesday night, their third straight victory over a ranked team.
Coach Geno Auriemma said the Huskies (8-0) wouldn't know their winning streak stretched to more than two years if not for the media.
