With UConn's recent home loss, the longest home winning streak belongs to Baylor. The Bears have won 49 straight in Waco. Your boggle: Who has the second longest active home winning streak?

So, I'll add another trivia question.

What player holds the national high school career record for blocked shots?

Hint: It's not Brittney Griner. Hint 2: She's now a DI head coach.

I'd say Tina Thompson. Or Adia Barnes.

You only get one answer, Howee. Make your choice.

Yes. That was probably too easy.

However, I sense something fishy about this record, which is listed in the nfhs.org record book here:

https://www.nfhs.org/RecordBook/Record-book-result.aspx?CategoryId=1482

Under career blocked shots, Adia Barnes is listed first with 1112. This would be an average of 278 per year over four years. However, Barnes is not listed in the top 18 players for career blocks in a season, which range from 318 for player #1 (Griner) to 217 for player #18 (Crystal Holbrook).

If Barnes averaged 278 blocks per year in a four year career, she should have been in the top 18 for a season at least once. If no records of her seasonal blocks were kept, then there would also be no record of her career blocks. The only other mathematical explanation I can think of is that Barnes played on a high school team for more than four years while all the other 18 seasonal block leaders didn't.

Maybe I'm missing something.

It would only need to be that her blocks were evenly spread over 5 years while the others' were scewed.

Some school districts allow 7th or 8th grade phenoms to play high school varsity sports.

Some middle school players play on their high school teams as early as 8th or even 7th grade, if the school district allows it. Miss. St.'s Andra Espinoza-Hunter, for example, played on the Ossining H.S. varsity as a 7th grader.

Sure, but if the records include four years from most players, but five or six for some, they seem to not really tell you much.
