Connecticut’s record 111-game winning streak came to a startling end when Mississippi State pulled off perhaps the biggest upset in women’s basketball history, shocking the Huskies, 66-64, on Morgan William’s overtime buzzer beater in the national semifinals Friday night at American Airlines Center.

William hit a 15-footer to cap it, moments after a replay review awarded Connecticut two free throws for a flagrant-1 foul call that tied the score with 26.6 seconds left.

Really terrific game. 111-game winning streak busted, in part because of MS's 5'5" tenacious and effective guard Williams.
