Auriemma becomes all-time winningest NCAA tournament coach

  Geno Auriemma won game No. 113 in NCAA tournament play Monday night against Oregon.

The records keep on falling for the UConn women's basketball team.

UConn's 90-52 win in the Elite Eight against Oregon Monday night marked coach Geno Auriemma's 113th career victory in NCAA tournament play, breaking the record across both genders in Division I.

Auriemma's total surpasses former Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt (112 career tournament victories). The leader among men's basketball coaches is Duke's Mike Krzyzewski (91), who comes in third on the list.

Monday's victory also marked the program's 111th straight win (in regular season and postseason play), another NCAA record that ranges back to 2014. The Huskies punched a Final Four ticket for the 10th straight year, tying John Wooden's UCLA men's team (1967-76) for the longest streak in college basketball history.

Auriemma and the Huskies have two more opportunities this year to add to those records. UConn will face Mississippi State in the Final Four on Friday and, with a victory, the Huskies would then get a shot at a fifth straight national title two days later.
