Stanford was the last school to beat the Huskies, in the 2008 NCAA semifinals.
Jeanette Pohlen hit five 3-pointers on the way to a career-high 31 points and the Cardinal (9-2) had the Huskies’ number at last—a huge number at that. Stanford won its 52nd straight at Maples Pavilion in a rematch of last season’s NCAA title game won 53-47 by two-time defending national champion UConn.
Last week, the Huskies (12-1) topped the 88-game winning streak set by John Wooden’s UCLA men’s team from 1971-74 by beating No. 22 Florida State 93-62, then won their 90th in a row this week at Pacific.
