The Connecticut women’s basketball team needs one more win to match one of basketball’s greatest accomplishments.

Maya Moore scored a season-high 31 points, and UConn pulled within a game of UCLA’s record 88-game winning streak with a 79-47 shellacking of Marquette in a Big East contest in Storrs, Connecticut. The UCLA men’s team coached by the late John Wooden, set the Division I record in January of 1974.

The Huskies will go for the record-tying win facing number-6 Ohio State on December 19 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

Tiffany Hayes and Bria Hartley each scored 16 points for the Huskies who are 9-0 overall, 2-0 in the Big East.

Angela Robinson led Marquette with 15 points. The Eagles are 7-2 overall, 0-1 in the Big East.

Kirk Jesse (DC)

Defiance College closed its 2010 campaign with a pair of Senior Day wins this past Saturday at Rutter Field against Rose-Hulman.  The series win by the Jackets ended the HCAC Championship hopes of the Engineers, while capping Defiance College’s winningest season since winning 19 games in 1999. They honored 6 seniors who will be leaving the program due to graduation.

The day started with the completion of Friday’s suspended game, which had Rose-Hulman holding an 8- 6 lead over Defiance entering the bottom of the eighth inning. DC came back to score 5 runs in the bottom of the inning to take control of the game at 11-8.

The three-run cushion would hold, as Tyler Gallant worked a perfect ninth inning to preserve the come from behind win for the Yellow Jackets. Gallant (3-3) was credited with the victory, after yielding one hit and one earned run in two innings, following a clutch six-inning relief pitching performance from Aaron Patterson in which he struck out six Rose-Hulman batters.

The Jacket offense erupted for 11 runs on 13 hits behind multi-hit games from six of the top seven hitters in the lineup. Kirk Jesse swiped three bases to tie the Defiance College single-season record of 27.

The offense stayed hot in the second game, using a six-run second inning to take control. The result was an 11-7 DC victory that saw the Purple and Gold pile up 14 more hits.

Tim Pitro Defiance (DC)

Defiance completed its assault on the record books on Saturday and saw four more records fall as Kirk Jesse set single-season marks with 171 at bats and 30 steals, while Tim Pitro tied the single season record with 14 doubles and set a new all-time runs scored record with 110.

Falling records were the theme for the Yellow Jackets in 2010, as the team set all-time records with 1,357 at bats, 400 hits, 76 doubles, 321 innings pitched, 963 putouts, 420 assists and a .958 fielding percentage.

Multiple individual single-season standards were also set, with Kirk Jesse’s at bats and steals marks joining Tim Pitro’s doubles record and Bryn Lehman’s assist total of 119.

Jesse and Pitro carried the act over into the all-time rankings as well, with Jesse leaving as the program’s all-time leader with 555 at bats and Pitro rounding out his record-breaking career as Defiance College’s all-time leader with 174 hits, 110 runs scored, 102 runs batted in, 34 doubles and 346 assists.

Defiance ends the 2010 season with a 16-23 record overall and a 7-15 mark in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. The Jackets are set to return the entire pitching staff, along with five starters and 13 letterman on offense for the 2011 campaign.

Andrew Strenge (UC)

Jake Proctor (UC)

In his first career start, Cincinnati freshman Andrew Strenge gave up seven hits, struck out six batters, and gave up two unearned runs in nine innings of work to lead UC past number 20 Connecticut, 3-2 Sunday afternoon at J.O. Christian Field in Storrs, Connecticut.

Strenge threw 113 pitches in his first career complete game, 76 were for strikes, becoming the first UC freshman to throw a complete game since Don Osterbrock threw a complete game at Villanova on May 6, 2006. The Yardley, Pennsylvania native also moved to 5-1 on the season.

The victory moved Cincinnati to 25-23 overall and 9-12 in Big East play, while number 20 UConn slipped to 36-10 overall and 16-4 in conference play. UC is now 2-2 on the season when playing teams ranked in the top 25 poll.

Both Strenge and UConn starter Greg Nappo held the opposing team scoreless through the first five innings, before UC put the first runs on the board in the sixth inning.

Freshman Jake Proctor got the damage started with a leadoff solo homer to right field to lead Cincinnati to the victory.D

Geno Auriemma (UCONN)

Maya Moore (UCONN)

The NCAA women’s national championship game in San Antonio, Texas on Tuesday night was being played by two of the best in the game, Stanford and Connecticut.

The halftime score was 20-12 Stanford. Yes, you’ve seen it 20-12. The Huskies missed 18 straight shots, from layups to 3-pointers and missed free throws. The Connecticut women went 10 minutes, 37 seconds between points.

Huskies star Maya Moore took control of the game.

Moore scored 11 points during a 17-2 run to start the second half of the national championship game, a key point in the game that put the Huskies back in control and on their way to a 53-47 win over the Stanford Cardinal on Tuesday night. Maya Moore finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds. Tina Charles added nine points, 11 rebounds and 6 blocks.

The win, their record-stretching 78th straight, capped a two-year run in women’s college basketball history, going undefeated from start to finish.

Connecticut finished the season the way as they did last season: 39-0 and National champions. Associated Press player of the year Tina Charles reminded everyone during the trophy ceremony, as she sent a message to the White House, “tell President Obama, we’re Baaaaaaaaaaack’.

UConn’s unbeaten streak is moving into sacred territory. If they can start the 2010-2011 season at 11-0, the Lady Huskies would top the 88-game streak by John Wooden’s UCLA men in the early1970′s.

Auriemma won his seventh national title in a 25 year career. That puts him one behind Tennessee’s Pat Summitt for most titles among women’s coaches.

Tina Charles (UCONN)

The Stanford Cardinal,  who finishes the season at 36-2, was the last team to beat UConn, exactly two years before, at the 2008 Final Four. In the last 15 months, Stanford has beaten everyone its faced except Connecticut. This was the their third straight loss.

They met earlier this season on December 23, 2009 in Storrs, Connecticut. Stanford led at the halftime, but lost by 12. It was the closest that anyone has ever been to beating the Huskies all season long.

Stanford center Jayne Appel closed her career with a game she will soon forget, going 0 for 12 from the floor and failing sore from the field.

Kayla Pederson led the Cardinal with 15 points and 17 rebounds.

The game in San Antonio was played before a crowd of 22,936 that included Vice President Joe Biden as well as former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
