UConn posted the program's third perfect season in 2008-09 while finishing 39-0 and capturing its sixth NCAA National Championship. The Huskies boast a 347-84 (.805) all-time record in BIG EAST Conference games and have won a combined 32 league titles.  The Huskies also became the first team in NCAA Division I history (men’s or women’s) to go undefeated and win each of its games by a minimum of 10 points.  Connecticut has captured either the BIG EAST regular season or tournament title in each of the past 16 seasons and boasts an all-time record of 323-8 in games played on Connecticut Public Television (CPTV).
 
CPTV is the TV Broadcast Home of UConn Women’s Basketball and has been broadcasting the team’s games since 1994. With consistently some of the highest ratings and strongest membership levels of any other program on public television over the past 15 years, UConn Women’s Basketball on CPTV is considered by many to be the most successful local franchise in public television history.
