The Timberlane Regional High School boys' basketball team headed into tonight's season finale against Keene with an 0-17 record on the season. The Plaistow, NH squad didn't win any games last season, either, or the year before that; their last win was in January, 2010—81 games ago. The streak finally ended tonight.
The long-suffering Tulsa Shock are now suffering just a little bit less! Since we checked in with them on Friday—when they seemed on track to surpass the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers for the worst losing streak in NBA/WNBA history—the Shock have tripled their win count for the season.
Last night, the Tulsa Shock lost to the Seattle Storm, 74-57. It was their 20th consecutive defeat. Like UConn as it closed in on UCLA's record college-basketball winning streak, the WNBA team is within reach of the longest losing streak in NBA history, 26 games, set by the 2010-11
New Jersey Nets Cleveland Cavaliers.
