183-game Southwest Conference Winning Streak Snapped

Before and after the Longhorns national championship, women’s basketball at UT dominated the Southwestern Conference. After falling to Texas A&M, 59-53, on Jan. 23, 1978, the Longhorns went undefeated in conference play for more than 12 years. On February 23, 1990, Arkansas snapped UT’s streak at 183 games. Since the NCAA started keeping stats, the Longhorns hold the record to this day for most consecutive conference wins (including postseason).
