You can't stop Minnesota-Morris....: can only hope to contain them. The women's basketball team won yesterday, snapping a 72-game losing streak that is the longest in NCAA history, in any division. (I'm not sure if this is men's and women's basketball, or just women's.) How many games are there in a season, anyway? Is it possible that entire classes have come in as freshmen and graduated four years later while the streak was in progress?

....and, had I actually read the article all the way through instead of merely skimming it, I'd see the answer to my own question. D'oh.

Eh, whichever, jaq. I just like to see streaks like this end. These poor girls practicing, playing, demoralized, and then the thrill of victory. Finally. Gives me the warm fuzzies. Pass the torch, baby. Pass it!

Didn't Rutgers-Camden lose a bunch of games in a row? Men's team, I think. I don't know how many.

To follow-up, Rutgers-Camden lost 117 games in a row, ending in 1997.
