In a shocker at the buzzer in overtime, the UConn women's basketball team lost to Mississippi State, 66-64, in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament early Saturday.

Mississippi State's Morgan William made the game-winning basket at the buzzer at the end of overtime in a huge upset.

The loss brought an end to UConn's 111-game win streak. It forced the Huskies out of the tournament, which they have won a record 11 times.

Mississippi State will now play South Carolina in the championship game at 6 p.m. Sunday in Dallas.

UConn's 111 straight wins started with a victory over Creighton on Dec. 23, 2014, and included two national championships.
