Distinctive Hope: Hope’s Winning Ways

As the season began in November, the Hope women’s basketball team held a one-of-a-kind national record: the longest active winning streak of any collegiate or university basketball program, men’s or women’s, at the Division I, II or III level. The tally began at 45, a run originating with the 2019-20 season, and as of this writing (through Nov. 24) stands at 50. In the annals of Hope athletics, it’s tied for the longest winning streak in school history (the women’s swim/dive team clocked a league-dual run of 50 during 1993-2001).
