Longest Home-Court Winning Streaks in College Basketball History (and the Longest Current Ones, Too)

The 1947-48 Kentucky Wildcats Won All Their Home Games...And The National Title

The 1947-48 Kentucky Wildcats Won All Their Home Games…And The National Title

You think that Duke 41-game home-court winning streak was something? Pshaw. That’s nothing.

The longest college basketball home win streak ever is more than three times as great. It’s Kentucky. The Wildcats hold so many team records, and here’s yet another one. And they won three National Championships in the middle of their record stretch.

Including Kentucky at the top with 129 home wins in a row (over 12 years!), seven streaks have been at least nearly twice as long as Duke’s. (80 games and up).

That includes another group of Wildcats prominent here. Arizona holds two of the longest home win streaks ever and the third current longest, too.

The game and competition have changed much over time. Do you think we’ll see streaks like the all-time top 10 again?

UPDATED LIST: Through Feb. 9, 2014. The four current longest streaks are still going.
