HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- The Wisconsin-Green Bay women's basketball team only owned the nation's longest winning streak for a day.

Now the streak is gone and so are the hopes of the Phoenix to advance in the NCAA tournament.

Green Bay took over as having the longest streak, at 26 straight, when Middle Tennessee lost to Marist Monday.

Then last night, freshman Tina Charles scored 22 points to lead Connecticut to a 94-70 win over the Phoenix in the Fresno Regional of the NCAA tournament.

The Huskies used a 14-2 run to erase a 46-42 second-half deficit and pulled away from there.

Natalie Berglin led Green Bay with 28 points, hitting six 3-pointers.

Green Bay ended the season with a record of 29-and-4.
