When Connecticut went perfect with a 39-0 record in 2001-02, we asked the experts if it was the best team in women's college basketball history.

Seven years have passed, and the answer remains the same: yes.

So where does UConn's 2008-09 championship team, which beat Louisville on Tuesday night in the NCAA title game to cap a perfect 39-0 season for the program's sixth national championship and third unbeaten squad, rank among the best? How does this version of perfection rank against the four previous undefeated Division I teams -- Texas 1985-86, UConn 1994-95, Tennessee 1997-98, UConn 2001-02 -- in women's college basketball history?

Here's what ESPN.com's columnists, ESPN's analysts and even a former Husky had to say.
