Florida women's tennis owns nation's longest home winning streak



When the St. John’s women’s basketball team upset No. 2 Connecticut this past weekend, it snapped the Huskies’ 99-game home court winning streak, which had been the longest active home win streak of any NCAA Division I women’s sport.

 Now the new streak belongs to the Gators.

The UF women’s tennis team currently has a 98-match home winning streak - the longest in the nation. The Gators will put that streak on the line on Feb. 25.
