The Huskies lost 66-64 in overtime. This loss snapped their 111-game win streak — which was the longest win streak ever in college basketball.
The Huskies tied the game at 26.6 seconds following a flagrant 1. Katie Lou Samuelson made both free throws to toe the game at 64 –and the Huskies got the ball.
However, they made a mistake late when they could have had the final possession. A Huskies player took a shot with approximately 13 seconds left.
