No. 1 UConn wins 87th straight against No. 4 Maryland

  All five starters scored in double-figures for UConn in its win Thursday night.

UConn extended its impressive win streak to 87 -- three away from its record of 90 -- in yet another win over a ranked opponent Thursday night.

The No. 1 Huskies traveled to a sold-out XFINITY Center to take on No. 4 Maryland and handed the Terrapins their first loss of the season in a tight 87-81 contest. Katie Lou Samuelson, playing under the weather, finished with a team-high 23 points to lead an ensemble of five different double-digit scorers. UConn's 14-0 run to open the third frame was the key turning point of the game, as UMD could not complete its comeback bid in an entertaining final frame.
