By Carl Adamec

The University of Connecticut women’s basketball game against Stanford at Maples Pavilion Dec. 29 is sold out, the Pac-12 school said Monday. The Cardinal have won 82 straight home games, the longest active streak in the nation, since a loss to Florida State in the 2007 NCAA tournament. UConn holds the NCAA record for longest home winning streak at 99.

The Stanford-UConn game will be a 1-2 matchup if both teams win their two games this week. The No. 1 Cardinal are at No. 21 South Carolina Wednesday and at No. 10 Tennessee Saturday. Second-ranked UConn hosts Oakland (Mich.) Wednesday and visits the University of Hartford Saturday.
