Odyssey Sims has never lost a home game with Baylor, which has a 69-game home winning streak spanning the career of the All-American senior guard.

That current nation's best streak gets a significant test when the No. 7 Lady Bears (14-1) host top-ranked Connecticut (17-0) on Monday night.

UConn coach Geno Auriemma's teams have been involved in many home-court winning streaks, maintaining their own and breaking others.

UConn holds the NCAA record with 99 wins in a row at home, a streak ended nearly two years ago by St. John's. The closest any team has gotten to that was Stanford, with 82 straight until UConn won at Maples Pavilion last season.
