TULSA, Okla. -- There are so many streaks, it seems, that the University of Connecticut women's basketball team is a part of that it's hard to keep track of them all.
But there's one coach Geno Auriemma takes more seriously than 91 consecutive wins, four straight national championships, nine NCAA Final Four appearances in a row or any other run the Huskies have going. In his 32 years with the Huskies, every athlete who has played four years and completed her eligibility at UConn has received her degree. That's 100 percent, even better than his all-time leading winning percentage.
When Saniya Chong chose to attend UConn early in her senior year at Ossining (New York) High, that statistic played into her decision. It's difficult enough to for any student to graduate college in four years, let alone a student-athlete playing a sport at its highest level.
