In 1986, Texas women’s basketball made history.

The Longhorns, led by head coach Jody Conradt, defeated the University of Southern California in the national championship game, finishing the season at 34-0 to become the first team in NCAA history to complete a perfect season.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of that historic season.
