1. What do you mean USC played well at the end? They were routed by UCLA

(Well to be fair UCLA was routing CAL at Hellman )

And USC had the worst performance at Ojai too

2. Cossou defeated Dy at dual (although I think she lost to Smatova and Vasilieva )

and she also did play Ojai, narrowly beating McVeigh and Fournier to reach the semi again,

only to get routed by Barte

3. HOPEFULLY!!! Didn't know you were a Cal fan

Huh? at USC Cal played their full lineup I think?

Juricova Sanchez
Cossou Ramos
Andersson Lao
Siwosz Pulido
Davis Andrews
Radeva Kinstler

Ah you mean Goransson didn't play?
Yea, Cal played their full line up back in February, but in the Pac-10 match at Berkeley, Cal played without Cossou and still won 5-2.

1. No. 3 Jana Juricova (CAL) def. No. 2 Maria Sanchez (USC) 6-3, 5-7, 6-3
2. No. 44 Mari Andersson (CAL) def. No. 26 Alison Ramos (USC) 4-6, 6-3, 6-4
3. No. 30 Danielle Lao (USC) def. Kasia Siwosz (CAL) 6-1, 6-1
4. No. 103 Valeria Pulido (USC) def. Annie Goransson (CAL) 6-3, 7-5
5. Tayler Davis (CAL) def. Sarah Fansler (USC) 6-4, 6-2
6. Nelly Radeva (CAL) def. Lyndsay Kinstler (USC) 6-3, 6-1

Re: NCAA Draws Posted - The road to Athens

St. Mary's was the WCC regular season and WCC tournament champions over Pepperdine. St. Mary's defeated Pepperdine twice this season. So why does #38 St. Mary's get #23 Arizona St. at UCLA regional, while #43 Pepperdine gets #31 SMU at Stanford regional?

St. Mary's and Pepperdine should have switched places. It would have been more fair and made more sense since St. Mary's is closer to Stanford and Pepperdine if closer to UCLA. I just don't understand how the committee came up with the St. Mary's and Pepperdine pairings.

Of course I know that, but I thought Tennisace was saying for BOTH matches.

They were kind enough that I could watch Soper's leg-through ball bouncing again



Maybe Schnack will follow Soper's EXEMPLARY action and do that

again at her home court

Re: NCAA Draws Posted - The road to Athens

Duke women's team is not hosting because the Duke men's team is already the host. The tournaments overlap during the weekend. I think Virginia will pull off an upset against Duke in the second round

I got news for you, dont overlook Princeton in the first round. Teams like this that are loaded with good players like to turn it on at tournament time!

Re: NCAA Draws Posted - The road to Athens

Lol.. don't worry, with UVA's recent performance they're going to edge Princeton at the least. They almost beat UNC, Duke and Clemson anyway in the regular ACC season.

Re: NCAA Draws Posted - The road to Athens

The Ivies are constantly in the top 16 in the recruiting classes. What is the last time an Ivy league school finished ranked in the top 16 or made the Sweet 16?

I think that their effort on the tennis court should count as a kinesiology and that they should get credit hours and grade points, just like they do for marketing or biology. Maybe THEN you would see some of those girls turn it on!

Ha. There is a big difference between attending and playing tennis at an Ivy than it is at a UF where someone basically writes your essays for you.
