Yeah, well if any team can stop USC it's all-star STAN of course.

But did anyone think that

Santamaria def. Gibbsy in 2
Lao def. Ahn in 2
Scandalis def. Hardebeck
De Simone def. Tsay in 2

could happen a year ago?

Stanford is vulnerable. Doubles is a must point for them and they will likely always lose the 6th position.

Yeah but when Gibbsy-Ahn-Krista-Tan are on they are still quite formidable, so

I'll take my chances against 3 of the 4 being hot in consecutive matches late in the NCAA tournament.

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

Krista has not really wowed anyone at the collegiate level. Thank God, because that probably means she won't turn pro after two years

Ahn and Tan are streaky, Gibbs is just a big question mark.

I see USC going deep but I also see UCLA getting a few scalps here and there.

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

It only counts in May...losses during the regular season are intentional confidence builders for the opponents short-term benefit

I like Stanford being the underdog and dark horse.

They're gonna peak just in time just wait and see.

It goes without saying, fear the tree

Not wise to be overlooking Tsay at #5 nor the doubles team from taking the first point

Tan former NCAA singles has been to the dance before. She's just saving her energy for the long haul, which is why she had a slow start.

Gibbs won the NCAA singles last year and doesn't want to go in being favored (let everybody put their guard down).

If Gibbs can beat top 100 players...

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

So, eh, I guess sgls and dbls are pretty much a lock for USC

So it could be the clash between;

Triple crown, aiming for the sweep(sgls, dbls, and Team; when was the last time a team did that? Did Stanford do it?); USC

vs

3-peat, UF

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

USC fans should then be highly interested in the SEC tournament where Florida, A & M, Georgia and Alabama seem poised to meet in the semi-finals and finals. Will also be interesting if the week after week schedule of this league and tournament helps or wears out these four in NCAA tournament.

Not only USC fans! As somebody said, the winner of SEC might become the #1 ranked team and thus the #1 seed of the NCAA tournament.

Since every other teams would want to avoid UF, SEC tournament will be watched

UNC will probably win the ACC tournament (can UVA challenge them? Or Clemson?)

Re: Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament

True point since Florida has to beat #3 and #4 on Sat. and Sunday to win SEC .

This tournament is a week earlier than most conference tournaments, though, so they'll also have extra rest before NCAA's
