The UConn Huskies have dominated women’s college hoops for a long time.

The Huskies have won 75 straight games, the last being an 82-51 victory over Syracuse for the program’s fourth national championship in a row. That is a feat that only the UCLA Bruins men’s team accomplished from 1967-73.

You would think it’d be hard to confuse UConn with any other team, but if there’s a will, there’s a way and Mike Tyson found a way.

Shortly after the championship game concluded, Tyson went to Twitter to congratulate the Cincinnati Bearcats, not the Huskies.

What makes it that much funnier is that the Bearcats have been awful for some years now. In fact, UConn’s 75 straight wins are more wins than Cincinnati has had in the last four years.

Mike Tyson has since deleted the tweet. I would have hated to have been the guy to tell him that he was wrong. I heard he can still throw a punch.
