Colorado State Women’s Basketball Team Rewrites History

Olivia Landis

The Colorado State women’s basketball team officially made history after defeating Utah State on February 17th, 2016, marking 20 straight wins on the season. This win-streak broke the previous record of 19 consecutive wins held by the 1998-99 team, which was led by retired professional basketball player and former Olympian Becky Hammon, who is also currently an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs (NBA).
