Re: Updates

4/17/13

#64 LSU upsets #42 Kentucky 4-2

- Interesting to see if this loss bumps down bubble team Kentucky enough from receiving an NCAA at-large. The LSU win helps UCI & LBS.


#71 Pepperdine def. LMU 5-2

- April Bisharat upsets #32 Lorraine Guillermo 6-3,6-3. Bisharat also has an upset over Santa Clara's #28 Katie Le. I wonder if these two top 35 wins will get Bisharat ranked. If so that would boost UCI's Kristina Smith's ranking.

Re: Updates

4/19/13

#51 SMU def. #46 Tulane 4-2

- Regardless of the victor this was a win-win situation that helps UCI who beat both teams. SMU next gets a rematch vs #20 Rice in a neutral site. SMU narrowly lost at Rice earlier in the year.

Re: Updates

4/20/13

#20 Rice def. #51 SMU = 4-1

- Very disappointing finish for SMU who had won the 1st set in 5 of the 6 singles spots.

- SMU was playing for their NCAA ticket as a win over #20 Rice would most likely have bumped them up into the top 40 and earned an NCAA at-large berth.

- SMU is now only a long shot to make the NCAA tourney. Upsetting #46 Tulane will improve SMU's ranking but not enough. SMU has to hope that Marshall gets ranked next week to help put them over the top.

- Marshall getting ranked will boost the rankings for Tulane, SMU and Pepperdine which in turn will help UCI.

UCI website;

"UCI has one final home match on Sun. Apr. 21st at 12:00 p.m. as it hosts Hawaii at Anteater Tennis Stadium."


UH website;
"What: Hawai'i Rainbow Wahine at No. 31 UC Irvine
When: UC Irvine, Sunday, Apr. 21 at 8:00 a.m.
Where: Irvine, California"

"4/21/2013 UC Irvine Irvine, CA 11:00 am PT"

"Hawai`i will complete their regular season on the road at UC Irvine on Sunday, April 21 with first serve at 11:00 a.m"

There is a 3 hour time difference between California and Hawaii. 11:00 P.M. California time is 8:00 A.M. Hawaii time.

But the correct match time is noon.

Re: Updates

4/27/13

#31 UCI def. Hawaii 4-0

#45 LBS def. UCSB 4-1

#62 Pepperdine def. #40 St. Mary's 4-0

- Pepperdine wins the WCC Tournament title. St. Mary's secured an at-large with their semi-final win over #56 San Diego.

#66 San Jose St. def. #52 Denver 4-3

- San Jose St. wins the WAC Tournament title.

- UCI is on the edge of being a #2 or #3 regional seed. The conference tournament titles by Pepperdine and San Jose St., who both lost to UCI, should help keep UCI a #2 seed in the regionals.

#65 UNLV def. Wyoming 4-2

- A win by Wyoming would have helped Long Beach State's NCAA at-large chances.

Re: New Big West - 2012-13

At large... you mean the also ran Eaters!

18-2-1*

And congrats to your fool coach who constantly stops matches early rather than play them all out.

4 1/2 hour epic (headed to 6-1) and your team DIED after 3 hrs. Lol

That's
13 consecutive finals
11 Big West titles
10 Tournament titles.... 9-1* vs Eaters in finals

Lol... great college tennis match!

It's a culture. HERE WE GO BEACH!

Re: New Big West - 2012-13

#45 Long Beach St. def. #31 UCI 4-1

UCI is a team player. UCI allowed the Big West to get 2 teams into the NCAA Tournament.


Big congrats to UCI's Kristina Smith who beat Long Beach State's Ebba Unden.
Kristina should now be the unanimous Big West Player of the Year.

Kristina will also earn the Big West automatic bid into the NCAA Singles Tournament.

All evidence from your posts over the years to the contrary. Smith is a good player... congrats to her and pleased she finally got her shot since she was playing as low as 6 at UCI. Congrats to her. Excellent match.

Congrats to LB dubs # 1 who basically killed the UCI ranked dubs team (Smith/Goettsching) from a shot at NCAA's too.

I was wrong through... said it was a pick em... not a likely 5-2 or 6-1 finish. Ooops

Today was a good commercial for college women's tennis.
