UCONN WOMEN Tie Record With 70th Cosecutive Win, All By Double Digits

The University of Connecticut national champion University of Connecticut women Huskies basketball team improved their record to 31-0 with a resounding 77-41 whupping of Syracuse in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament at the XL Center in Hartford. It was, unbelievably, their 70th straight double digit win.The record is 70 and they'll have a chance to break that record, their own, at the XL Center in Hartford at 6pm. The game will be on ESPNU so if you have a digital cable box and you want to see history, locate ESPNU on your cable or satellite lineup. You'll be glad that you did.

The Boston Red Sox scored four runs in the eighth and ninth innings to eke out a 5-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Clay Buchholz made his first start of the season but it was a shaky one. That's OK this time of the year because for the most part, pitchers are just getting the feel of facing live bats. The relievers gave up only one other run and the bats came alive enough to snatch the game away from the Birdies. Here's the Boston pitching summary from Sunday's game...

Buchholz 2.0 5 3 3 2 1 13.50
Atchison 1.0 1 0 0 0 2 0.00
Bonser 2.0 1 0 0 0 3 0.00
Bard 1.0 2 1 1 0 1 4.50
Kelly(W, 1-0) 2.0 0 0 0 1 1 0.00
Manuel(SV, 1) 1.0 0 0 0 0 2 0.00

It's been an uneventful spring so far for the Red Sox and that's JUST the way I like it. No injuries. I tried to watch the 1-2pm hour of the game on the MLB cable channel but they did not televise it. It really didn't matter because ESPNU had wall-to-wall UCONN women coverage right up until the 2pm history-making game. Don't forget...if you can receive ESPNU on your cable tier of channels, tune in at 6pm as the women try for a new record, the best ever for a women's basketball team in history. Number 71 is in their sights. Click on the title of this post for the Hartford Courant's complete coverage of the game and everything around it in the city of Hartford. There are multiple things to click on so you can get a "feel" of the excitement and anticipation the city of Hartford, Connecticut experienced yesterday. I'm ready for 6pm right now! If any of you saw yesterday's game, please let me know in a comment and as always and forever, BE WELL. Thanks.
