Re: Big West - 2010 key matches
Gouci, you should be pleased - Dallara played #1 against UCR today. And Form will be pleased that most of the girls spent enough time on court to get a good workout. LB did have a quick 15 minute practice after the match to get prepared for tomorrow.
The final decision was 7-0 in favor of the Beach, but #2, #3, and #5 all split sets, and even Dallara got a couple of hours of singles play in. Luzar played #6 and played well and was first off the court. She and Cantlay also came back from 4-7 to take the #3 doubles set in a tie-breaker.
I'm sure LB was caught looking past UCR, and may not have come prepared, but still it was nice to see all three of UCR's top players return to form, and UCR's #5 played a quality match as well. If UCR can tighten up their doubles play so they don't always start singles in the hole, I think they might threaten a few teams this year.
