Watch This Team’s Amazing, Candid Reaction After Learning They’ll Play Unbeatable UCONN in NCAA’s
— Spectrum News Albany (@SPECNewsAlbany) March 13, 2017
The UCONN women’s basketball team is really, really good. They’ve won 107 consecutive games, dating back to November 2014 when they lost to Stanford. The loss to Stanford snapped a 47-game win streak. So they’ve won 154 of their last 155 games.
One unlucky team was going to draw UCONN as a first-round opponent in the NCAA Tournament. And that team happened to be the University of Albany.
Like almost all schools do now, Albany filmed their team watching the selection show broadcast — so that they could capture the exuberance of the moment the team found out it was going dancing.
Only, it wasn’t exuberance that Albany was feeling. It was panic.
The faces in the video above say it all. Several jaws dropped upon hearing the news. One of the team members appeared to say “Oh my God!” They all seem to realize that their NCAA Tournament stay is, barring a miracle, going to be very, very brief.
Best of luck to the Great Danes. They’re going to need it.
