The University of Connecticut women’s basketball team won their fourth straight national championship game as they defeated Syracuse 81-52.

Their latest title victory brings them to 75 consecutive wins dating back to September of 2014 when they lost to Stanford by two points.

However, UConn’s record-setting 90-game win streak that dated back to the 2008-2009 season and subsequently ended back in 2010 still remains unbroken.

UConn coach Geno Auriemma has now won 11 titles with UConn and remains undefeated in title games. This season caps off his sixth undefeated season while coaching at UConn.

Auriemma now has 109 tournament victories, trailing only Pat Summitt (112) for the most in the history of the sport.
