To the University of Connecticut women's basketball team, it may be just another game.
To Husky Nation, it's another way to cement the team into the annals of basketball history.
The UConn Huskies reached their 100th consecutive win Monday night against a tough South Carolina team. It's a feat no other basketball team, men's or women's, NBA or NCAA, has ever achieved.
The last time the team lost was Nov. 17, 2014. The game was against rival Stanford.
The Huskies have the home court advantage. They're playing at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs.
However, they'll have to get through a sixth-ranked South Carolina team. UConn is 24-0. South Carolina is 21-2. The recipe is there for a historic game.
At half time, the Huskies were leading, 35-29.
The final score was 66-55, Huskies.
"Huge UConn fan, we've been coming to the games for 30 years," said Jim Davis, of Wethersfield.
"I've watched UConn basketball my entire life, especially the women and it's so exciting to have an experience like this, like no ones ever done it so it's amazing for the school," said Amanda Farhardt, who is a junior.
If were heading to the game on Monday night, a detour was put into place. The eastbound side of Interstate 84 in Tolland would be closed through the evening rush after chemical truck crash.
Any drivers coming eastbound from the greater Hartford area to the UConn Storrs campus were advised to take one of the following routes:
Authorities said drivers should be able to head home on normal routes.
