MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama women are trying to build on back-to-back milestone wins.

The Crimson Tide has beaten two Southeastern Conference teams in a row for the first time in three years. First-year coach Kristy Curry's team topped then-No. 9 Kentucky for the Tide's first road win over a top 10 team since 1998.

Then Alabama halted a 23-game losing streak to Georgia.

Now, the challenge is keeping it up for a team that won a total of four conference games the past two seasons. Alabama visits Florida Thursday before hosting No. 10 Tennessee.

Curry says Alabama's play is "night and day" better than where it started.

She says she's trying to establish a culture where the focus is on winning every day, whether it's practice, games or even study hall.
