so, USC didn't do that well in MD singles.
Scandal lost to Tan in 2,
Lao lost to Schutting in 2
Sabs lost to Goransson in 2,
KK lost to Skowrowski in 2.
And Tan will probably play #4(If Ahn is not good enough) or 5 singles next season
Did well at the Invitational of course, since it was a Trojan final.
Again, if USC wants to win NCAA, needs a super-player like Nelson. Nelson who advanced to the NCAA final two times in a row. Who was an EXCELLENT attacker.
Nobody fits that bill now.
Lao is top 20, not top 10 player.
Scandal lacks weapons (her potent serve can't be maximized if she can't hit flat..one-two punch could be a very effective weapon. Well, she's still a freshman so can improve a lot, of course).
Sabs is maybe the biggest hitter but still inconsistent.
Can incoming freshman Yates make it? Or Westby? dunno...their junior results are not of a top player material yet..
But USC has a pretty even pool, so predicting the lineup order will always be fairly interesting
Maybe next to STAN's order
Maybe USC's plan is like UCLA's, strengthening the lower positions and the dbls
