How special is 30-0 in women's basketball?

The UConn women's basketball team completed a perfect regular season at 30-0. How special is it? It's better than losing a game, I suppose. Though some may argue that losing a game in the regular season helps a team focus, given they've won two by winning them all already, I don't think that applies. But whereas there hasn't been an undefeated men's team in Division I since 1976 (Indiana), there have been four women's teams to go through the season and NCAA tournament undefeated since 1986, and Connecticut's already done it twice in the last 15. So when Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma says, "No matter how great we are or how wonderful we are that the real story is if we don't win the national championship," I believe him.
