Hey, I didn't mean to imply it was your fault.  I just can't read.

Any long-standing home winning streaks of note, possibly carrying over from last season that are still going this season?

The Hope College Dutch (women) have a 17-0 winning streak at home and are undefeated in the DeVos Fieldhouse.  With the recent road victory over Wheaton -the only team to defeat them last year - their current winning streak was extended to 35 - 0. 

The team's ability to retain their composure in close games has been key to their success.  They have kept the record intact with a last second two point and a three point overtime victory this year.  Last year they won five games by 4 points or less, including two three point victories (Washington and Scranton) during the playoffs.

Although it can be dangerous to look too far ahead, with Tri-State and North Central next up on the schedule it seems likely that the winning streak can be extended to 37.  Both of these games are on the road.

Does any college bb team (in any division) have a longer current winning streak?

VA Wesleyan has a 17 game home winning streak dating back to their loss to Hamden-Sydney on November 30th of 2005 (which was also their last loss of any kind that season).


Amherst is riding a 14 game home winning streak right now as well.  They last lost to Trinity (CT) on January 14th of this year.

Lincoln hasn't lost at home since they played D2 Bowie State on Dec 9th 2004.  However, that only amounts to a 19 game home winning streak as Lincoln spent most of last season on the road.  They've got a good shot at extending this streak at least into the post-season this year as they have only seven home games remaining the entire season and only one of them (Rowan) appears to be all that difficult.

Lincoln is still alive at 21 straight home victories.

Hope women currently have a 19 game HOME winning streak and a 43 game OVERALL streak going into tonights game at Olivet.  Have not lost since DeVos Fieldhouse opened.


Hope's men have won 30 straight HOME games going back to January 12, 2005.  Hope hosts Albion tonight, the last team to beat Hope in Holland.

They've won 24 in a row at the DeVos and won their last 6 at the Holland Civic Center.

Wow that is an amazing streak Bowdoin has going, I liked the list of close call's to, sometimes forgotten when talking about long streaks.

Does the NCAA keep track of d3 winning streaks?  I would like to see the men's and women's all-time streaks and maybe we could compile the home win streaks ourselves.

Unofficial stat adding the topic.  UW-Platteville men had a 96 game regular season home winning streak from 1991-2000.  Lost a couple of tough ones in the tourney, but nonetheless impressive.

So what are we left with?

Bowdoin and Hope both had long streaks end recently.

It seems like the Scranton women are at 72 games right now without losing at home.  Is that right or did I miss one?  Their last loss was an OT loss to Desales February 15th 2001?  I'm counting playoff and tournament games played at home in this.  That's pretty impressive in it's own right, no?

It seems Southern Maine women are at 59 and counting as well, their last home loss coming to Bowdoin, December 2nd of 2003.

Stevens Point women appear to be at 22 right now.


On the men's side:

Lincoln is at 23 straight at home; VA Wesleyan is at 19 and Amherst is at 17.

I'm told by the folks at Scranton that the home win streak is 55, not 72...looks like USM is the new leader, unless anyone else has info they want to share.
