CHICAGO - UIC News recently visited women's basketball practice to update fans on the 2013-14 season. Head coach Regina Miller and redshirt senior Katie Hannemann talk about the Flames' strong start and the play of Caitlin Garant, Megan Wallace and Gisselle Truiett.

The Flames’ 6-2 record is the best start in 12 seasons and equals the best eight-game start in the Division I era. Since UIC became a Division I member in 1980-81, the Flames have been 6-2 to start a season twice (1995-96 & 2001-02). 

It is also the Flames’ first six-game win streak since Jan. 11-Feb. 3, 2007 in the midst of a program-record 11 consecutive victories. Four of the six victories have been over 2012-13 WNIT participants (Idaho State, Miami Ohio, Texas Southern and Butler).  

UIC is in action tonight (Dec. 18) at Western Michigan (3-5). Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. CT inside University Arena. A win would match the 2001-02 squad for the best nine-game start (7-2) in the Division I era.
