Transcript for FiveThirtyEight: Uconn women eye new milestone
UConn Huskies are eight and oh this season and winners of three straight NCAA titles. And still the giants have NCAA women's basketball before the warriors there were the Huskies see you mentioned Neal. That. Initially ought to go undefeated as agreed to we talked about. Murder Leon on the show is it harder. To win four championships than it is to go undefeated in once he's in because. In order when for championships you have to win what is it six games in the Terna meant. In four consecutive years that's 24. Registering a point where undefeated if you will right just in post season play against threats teams so already there's sort of like that. What does that three quarters of the season packed in there. So I don't try and make sense own what I should be more impressive. Did just talked about it back to top your head back of the napkin what are you guys think. Is it is harder because the you can lose a long way obviously mr. season that you can't lose in the turn Kim has been turn now. Yeah that's until he said that is a really lake it it makes an impact to think about how many straight. Turner Maine games you have to win to win four straight championships and in college basketball. Yeah I I don't really know off the top my head I would guess. That it's harder to go undefeated just because there are more games. In total. Then lake you're gonna have to play Kentucky had a plane near about forty games and would have had to go undefeated through all of those rather than just the Tony for. But if you think about it in those forty ER you know may be half of them are against teams that. Are not really that good you know handful of them are against teams that are really not that good so I guess I'll change I'll change my opinion I thought what I myself and say that it's probably harder to to win that those tournament games. Yet only thing I. I think I would agree with your second that has especially because given how stratified women's college bass while is a don't think UConn is facing good teams. In the regular season as much staying. Don't get those really really close games and you know they have an average of their up by 25 points at halftime and most withering receiving games last year so. I would say that for them from inside bass line do you think it is more impressive to me to see. Fourth hopefully for that national teams it's.
