The UConn Huskies women's team clinched a seventh consecutive trip to the Final Four when they beat Texas A & M, 69-54, Monday night.

However, this program has become so powerful it doesn't even bother cutting down the nets, a longtime basketball tradition, when they celebrate berths in the Final Four.

This basketball dynasty is all about national championships and hoisting the trophy on the final day of the season. Geno Auriemma and his team are pursuing perfection once again and a record ninth national championship.

If this year's edition of the Huskies runs the table, finishes 40-0, and brings another national title back to Storrs, CT., just where will it rank among the great UConn teams?

There have been plenty of spectacular ones beginning with the Rebecca Lobo-led squad that went undefeated and captured UConn's first-ever national title in 1995. Four teams have finished as undefeated national champions.

Eight national champions in all. Which team do you think is the best?
