Those 51 defeats have been caused by a variety of reasons and occurred on all types of stages.

This run, perhaps the truest sign of the program’s consistency in the championship era, continued Wednesday when the No. 3 Huskies routed Georgetown, 75-48, at the McDonough Arena.
The Huskies (13-1, 1-1) have now gone 707 games, dating to consecutive losses in March 1993, without back-to-back defeats. They play at Marquette Saturday where the streak will extend again.
