FILE - In this April 6, 2004, file photo, Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma hoists the championship trophy after UConn defeated Tennessee 70-61 in the NCAA Division I women's basketball championship game in New Orleans. Auriemma, whose Huskies have won the last four NCAA championships and 11 national titles overall, conceded the enormous burden that any dynasty feels. "It's so much more difficult once you get to a point where the bar is set so high that it becomes improbable to maintain," he said Tuesday, Dec. 27, even with his team riding an 86-game winning streak.

4. Geno Auriemma’s nine championships at the University of Connecticut make him the most successful postseason coach in the history of NCAA D-I women’s basketball. He’s no scrub in the regular season, either. Auriemma led the Huskies to back-to-back perfect seasons in 2008-09 and 2009-10, shattering the NCAA’s record for longest winning streak in the process with 90 consecutive victories.
