Tan is a wildcard and Dillon has to play her best to win. Hardebeck is coming to her own and building momentum. All I can say is that winning the doubles point will be big,
because it could be 3-3 in the singles competition.

Not making excuses but with Mal turning pro early, it exposes STAN without the normal depth that they have at the bottom of the line-up, which use to be their core strength until all those SoCal schools caught on

I'll say this that if Gibbsy loses today to Santamaria AND if USC wins, I will change my avatar to USC/SS (through the regular season) if and only if Fantic changes his avatar to Stanford!!!
Why should I change my avatar to the loser if STAN loses Looking forward to the match! But, I'm at Claremont right now... Wish me to arrive at USC in time later

You only have to change your avatar if STAN wins. I am assuming you're pulling for USC.

Tan's sacrifice is all the exceptional in that regard; NCAA finalist playing 4 or 5? Come on
She's just too modest!
Actually, UCLA has a history of players transferring out.

Recent case is Hoffpauir, she's now playing #1 at USD.

So, it's not an impossible scenario...

Well, Cat switched her commitment to UCLA so I have a difficult time seeing her transferring out. She knew what she was getting into with that decision.

Ray has been injured so maybe she has accepted that with all of those injuries, she may not be a top 3 player?

The one player I can see transferring is Skylar. She and Courtney will probably only play doubles for the remainder of their UCLA career after this season. Courtney will be a senior next year so she will likely stay.

Re: Pac 12

UCLA loses to Cal 4-3. Seriously? Kaitlin Ray enters back in the singles lineup and you put her at #6? UCLA is a mess right now.

Re: Pac 12

OUCH!!!

Hard to believe Stacey was the lone winner for the Card. Talk about an up and down season. Not sure why Dillon is playing, Kostas was a bit more impressive to me last time I saw them play.

(1) #1 Christian/Santamaria (USC) def. Ahn/Gibbs (STAN) - 8-1
(2) Tan/Tsay (STAN) def. DeSimone/Scandalis (USC) - 7-6 (5)
(3) Lao/Olmos (USC) def. Dillon/Hardebeck (STAN) - 8-3
USC wins doubles point.
Order of finish: 1, 3, 2
SINGLES
(1) #2 Sabrina Santamaria (USC) def. #20 Nicole Gibbs (STAN) - 6-1, 6-4
(2) #7 Danielle Lao (USC) def. #30 Kristie Ahn (STAN) - 7-6 (1), 6-3
(3) #27 Zoë Scandalis (USC) def. #14 Krista Hardebeck (STAN) - 6-1, 4-6, 6-2
(4) #93 Stacey Tan (STAN) def. #116 Giuliana Olmos (USC) - 6-2, 7-6 (5)
(5) #70 Gabriella DeSimone (USC) def. Ellen Tsay (STAN) - 6-1, 7-6 (3)*

Re: Pac 12

Impressive win by USC. If Stanford beats Cal in a few weeks, UCLA could play spoiler in who wins the Pac-12. UCLA is going to drop in the rankings.

Last year Stanford won the regular season match then USC won in the NCAA's QF.

This year USC wins the regular season match...

Re: Pac 12

It seems Klara is the real thing.

Kyle

So, de facto #1 team is now USC I guess

And I'll be surprised if Sabs don't win NCAA. There's no competition for her, she just schooled Gibbsy. Dunno how many winners Sabs scored today...She could take Falconi's route, turning pro..
