- The best scenario for the Big West is for Dartmouth to go undefeated in the Ivy League. :bounce: This might make them the highest ranked Ivy League team, helping UCI & Cal Poly, without taking an NCAA at-large spot.



Actually, at this point the best scenario is for Yale to win out and take the only Ivy League spot. Otherwise, Dartmouth would get the automatic and Yale is not likely to move out of the top 42. Thus Ivy's would get two, not just one.

Remember,they don't give you negative points for a loss so Yale is not likely to drop that far backward at this late date. And Ivy Group does not have a tournament.

I was thinking the problem with Yale winning out is they lost to Princeton. So if Yale is in a 2 way or 3 way tie for the Ivy League title they lose the tie-breaker to Princeton. But I just checked and Princeton has 2 conf. losses so that scenario is out of the way. The Ivy League standings can be confusing since they can play each other twice but only the last one counts for conference standings.

But you're probably right about Yale not moving out of the top 42. Especially if they beat #45 Brown who they still have to play. So the bubble teams will be rooting for a Yale win over Dartmouth that gives them the tie-breaker.

# 42 Long Beach State 5, Pacific 2 ... LB State clinches share of BW regular season title and the # 1 seed at tournament. Doesn't mean diddly without winning tournament but certainly makes for any easier Friday match to start the three expected to be 'HOT' days at Indian Wells.

Pacific's $70,000 pro Jennifer Widjaja sweeps the Big West singles again this season and all but clinches to again be BW Player of the Year. I have not researched it but I 'think' her only loss in the her three years in the Big West was to Long Beach's four time Player of the Year Hannah Grady.

- This goes back to how the Dartmouth at UCSB match being abandoned was a Disaster for the Big West. Dartmouth was giving UCSB a gift by playing hometown walk-on Decker-Sadowski at #6 singles. But the UCSB coach was CLUELESS about the NCAA at-large ramifications for the conference or he would of played that match before Northwestern. I hope all the Big West coaches remind him about it at the BWT. :shout:

Here is another....

Santa Clara 5, # 56 UC Davis 2
Davis for some unknown reason plays Chui in doubles but then pulls her and slide the rest of the ladder up. The proceed to lose to an unranked opponent. Makes you wonder if some coaches care about winning some matches?



Elsewhere....

# 74 UC Santa Barbara 6, LMU 1. The interesting note here is that the UCSB coach appears to be looking for someone to win a key point at # 6. He inserted Michelle Murphy for the first time since her only other spring match.. a loss at # 6 on January 28. She did win but it was against a very poor # 6 1-6, 3-6, 7-6.

Will she be in the line up tomorrow vs # 60 UC Irvine?


Historically, ... the line ups presented for the Big West Tournament can be creative? Will it happen again this year?

- UCSB is about to fall out of the rankings. Maybe UCI should prop up UCSB's ranking Sunday for the good of the Big West. ;)


Congrats to Cal Poly for winning a share of the Big West regular season title. :worship:


Cal Poly’s Sunday home match versus No. 39 Saint Mary’s was postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

-release (http://gopoly.com/index.php?p=sports&id=30011&article_id=105942)

Now when will Cal Poly reschedule #40 St. Mary's? Cal Poly should be doing everything it can to lockup an at-large and help the Big West by trying to upset #40 St. Mary's. If the Cal Poly coach allows this match not to be played that should be a fire-able offense. :oh:

The big question was who will win?
No not who will win the match, but who will win the Big West Player of the Year award?

Undefeated in conference Jenifer Widjaja answered that question by defeating previously undefeated in conference Anais Dallara 6-2,6-3.

Jenifer Widjaja will set an infamous record for oldest Big West Player of the Year at 24. But in 2013 Long Beach State's Klaudia Malenovska will do everything in her power to try and tie that record. :oh:

Here's an interview with the Cal Poly coach below back in January where he says he will retire. 53 is a young age to retire?

I guess Cal Poly players have been motivated this season to send off their coach by having his best season yet. If Cal Poly earns an NCAA at-large in addition to their share of the regular season title, the players would have accomplished that sentiment. :worship:

One of the keys to which bubble teams gets a final push towards the NCAA at-large is which teams falls out of or jumps into the rankings the last minute.

74. UNC Wilmington - Is hanging by a thread to its ranking. They lost in the semi-finals of the Colonial Tournament which hopefully knocks them out of the rankings. Plus their win over Mercer is recorded twice giving them an extra win.

- UNCW falling out of the rankings pulls down #33 VCU, #65 Georgia St. & #44 William & Mary.

75. Central Florida - Is also hanging by a thread to its ranking. They lost in the semi-finals of CUSA Tournament which hopefully knocks them out of the rankings. A team with no ranked wins shouldn't be ranked ahead of teams with multiple ranked wins. That goes for UNCW above.

- CF dropping out hurts #43 South Florida.


Maybe these 2 teams fall out of the rankings in favor of teams like Cal St. Northridge or Pacific getting ranked. :bounce:

I will provide a Hail Mary scenario where the winner of the UC Davis vs UCI match can get an at-large. The following must happen.

1. CSUN needs to upset #42 Cal Poly.

Cal Poly may already think they have an at-large locked up. The Cal Poly coach was calculating in canceling playing St. Mary's to take head to head out of the equation when selecting bubble teams. Plus hopefully CSUN is healthy with Jaworowski back.

2. Nevada needs to win the WAC tournament.

Nevada is playing better with #1 singles Florence De Vrye back. They have won 6 in a row including beating #72 Boise St. I can see Nevada beating both #72 Boise St. and #73 Fresno St. to win the WAC tourney. With a win over Fresno St. and 2 over Boise St. I can see Nevada getting ranked.


- CSUN upsetting #42 Cal Poly combined with beating #49 SDSU will definitely get them ranked.

- CSUN getting ranked will boost the rankings of UCSB & Dartmouth which will help both UCD & UCI.

- Nevada getting ranked, who lost to CSUN, will boost CSUN's ranking even higher.

- The winner of UCD vs UCI will most likely beat CSUN in the semis. This team has just added 4 more ranked wins to their resumes. 1. UCD/UCI 2. Nevada 3. CSUN twice.

- Adding 4 ranked teams to the resume may be enough to move 15-20 spots into the bubble team range.

It's a long shot but just saying. :lol:

The rankings calculation, beginning in April, already factors in the 'unpublished' 75-150 ranked teams. So your hail mary scenario may work for 'new wins' but will not add much if certain teams slip into 65-75 slots because that is already being factored.

Other thoughts:
- Nevada with DeVrye could win WAC

- CSUN with Jaws could beat Cal Poly... though the doubles point will be crucial. CSUN should be favored at 1 & 2... CP favored at the bottom. For CSUN to win, they must take doubles point and they are usually pretty good at dubs year in and out.

- There is only one guaranteed win at the Big West Tourney... LB will defeat Riv/Fullerton. Yep, that one is a lock. hehehehehe

After that, any one could beat anyone on a given day. CP-CSUN in morning, then warm afternoon (90 degrees) with UCSB-UOP and UCD-UCI. Those three are excellent matches.

- Heat looks to be ok... 87 on Friday, 89 on Sat and then the scorcher Sunday but the finals begin at 9am so the match should be well over before the temp gets ungly in the afternoon.

- Have learned to never take the tournament scores at face value since they stop at 4 pts. So CSUN could beat CP 4-3 or CP could win 4-0 or 4-1... not reflective of how close the league is down to # 7....

Could Big West be a three bid conference if CP or LB don't win?

Cal Poly jumped LB (stunned but I think they maxed out # of matches that they count; CP has 7 ranked and LB 5 ranked wins) which should be interesting next week since LB now gets a big bump on first spin for having beaten # 36 Cal Poly. Who knows what happens on the second spin.

Historically, it looks to take about 17.6 ranking pts to get into the approx bubble spot.

As of today, the bubble is # 44 Kansas State... so St. Mary's is currently IN>

# 45 William & Mary is in on a conference automatic but does not then add another spot.

And interestingly USC no longer a host and Arizona now a # 3 seed. That would make six west coast three seeds and four west coast hosts (Stanford, UCLA, Cal and ASU) which means two western 3 seeds would get to fly east this year...

At large still holds at # 44.... the biggest possible mover to the at large is Mountain West Conference

# 38 UNLV is in either way... but if they win tourney the at large bubble holds at 44.

Unranked Wyoming just BEAT # 50 SD State with a come from behind 4-3 win. SDSU had 3-2 lead and In the last two matches SDSU had both first sets... then Aguilar was up 5-4 in third but lost in a tie break... then Trunk lost 6-3 in the third set in her last collegiate match.... to give Wyoming (who has been in and out of rankings this season) the win.

That leaves Wyoming to play # 55 Utah tomorrow. Utah won 4-3 in Salt Lake City a few weeks ago. The winner than 'likely' plays UNLV.

Hey Form does Cal Poly or any Big West team still have the option to play a consolation match, like Cal Poly vs UC Davis or UCSB for 5th place to bolster a team's at-large chances ala St. Mary's beating Santa Clara for 3rd place in WCC Tourney?

UCD's two freshmen Heneghan and Koehly folded under pressure I guess :sobbing: Byron is a big match player? :lol:
Let me give my candid observations about Byron vs Heneghan for the 1st meeting at UCI.

- I can't recall the last time a UCI player questioned more line calls in a match than the 10 or so times Courtney Byron questioned Meghan Heneghan's calls.

- Byron acted like Heneghan was cheating her to death. In my honest opinion, out of those 10 or so, I thought 7 of those line calls by Heneghan were bad.

- In junior tennis where you call your own lines and no one is watching cheating can sometimes get rampant. In college tennis, balls that hit the line are considered IN and not out, a concept some freshmen have to learn. Plus with spectators in college tennis cheating makes a player look bad. In the Big West Tournament however cheating is kept in check with chair umpires stationed at the courts.

- Byron got very frustrated with Heneghan's line calls and seemed to self destruct which disappointed me. But make no mistake Byron was dictating the majority of the points. Byron was the one making Heneghan run around the court playing on the defensive most of the match.

- I don't think Heneghan folded in the 2nd meeting. Byron is an emotional player that does play better in big matches but I was expecting Byron to win the 1st meeting by about the same score. The 2nd time around Byron just didn't self destruct.

What a difference circumstances make.

- In the 1st meeting UC Davis sneeked up on UCI which was gearing itself up to play Long Beach St. its next match. In the 2nd meeting UC Davis had UCI's undivided attention.

- In the 1st meeting UCI was experimenting with their #3 doubles. The only dual match Brooke Schweyer and Miranda Young played doubles as a team was against UC Davis. After that they were never teamed up again. Schweyer/Young was actually leading Zamudio/Koehly 6-5 and in position to win UCI the doubles point. But then both Schweyer and Young shot themselves in the foot by dropping both of their serves back to back and losing 8-6. :facepalm: In the 2nd meeting UCI's #3 doubles has stabalized under the combination of Franziska Goettsching and Miranda Young who have won 6 out of their last 7 as a team.

- In the 1st meeting Kelly Chui was playing #5 singles. Even if Chui was at #5 unintentionally it still carried the same effect as if she were stacked down at #5 singles. In the 2nd meeting Chui was playing where she belongs at #2 singles.

- In the 1st meeting UC Davis was playing UCI with nothing to lose. In the 2nd meeting both Davis and UCI were playing with their seasons on the line.


Taking all of these factors into account I thought UCI would get its revenge :drool: and did by beating UC Davis 4-0 in the 2nd meeting.

I gotta go.

LB vs chEaters in final tomorrow. LB crushed Pacific including Dallara ending the 75k pro Widjaja's career with just her second ever league loss in straight sets. Her only other loss was to LB'S Hannah Grady in 09...Grady was the coach on tjat coirt today.

LB however had Malenovska go down with knee injury. Status unknown. Mayne LB coach will pull a chEater tomorrow and try to bump her to #1 instead.

Uci beat Northridge... long dubs matches, rolled at #11 but got rolled at #5. I left as csun took first set tiebreaks at 2 & 6 but were losing badly at 3 and 4 I believe. Friend called to confirm Uci won.

Shame if Malenovska hurt bad...LB just peaking for an NCAA run.

Is LB now a lock? Is Cal Poly in?

Hi Fantic...Heneghan has a bad attitude when losing a match. She slams the ball back at her opponent when her opponent needs the ball to serve.

Flew down from the North Slope a week ago for some R&R and some warm weather in Palm Springs(I love it that Alaska Airlines services Palm Springs). How super to see my alma mater women's tennis team restore order in the BWC and take back the title, although I understand that they had already won the regular season title. Winning the conference tournament though leaves no doubt as to who is #1.....THE BEACH LADIES, and they did it without their #2 player in singles and half of the #1 doubles team, Klaudia.....I guess coach Hilt-Costello could have done something tantamount to what the UCI coach did last year and play her anyway, injured, and keep everyone in their normal spot, but Jenny has more class and more ethics than to do something like that and she pulled Klaudia from the line-up and moved everyone below their #1 up a spot.....we would have probably won the match either 6-1 or 5-2 at the worst, and with Klaudia in the line-up I am sure that we would have swept UCI.....Coach Hilt-Costello is a stand-up coach and her players rose to the occasion....I looked for GOUCI but understand that he chose to lay low this weekend....too bad, would have loved to have met him....here for another 4 days and then back to the business of Oil!

Quote # 1: Ummm... the UCR trainer actually cleared her to play because they did not believe it was a tear but just a sprain.

Next subject?Pacific's Jennifer Widjaja repeats as Big West Women's Tennis Player of the Year. (http://www.bigwest.org//story.asp?story_id=14834)

Dallara beat Widjaja in their last meeting. Dallara is the top player on the team that won the regular season and conference tournament. Form you probably think Dallara should have won Big West Player of the Year. Dallara and Widjaja both only had 1 conference loss. At the very least why weren't they named co-Players of the Year?

Anais Dallara was snubbed big time. :happy:


Last season Jaklin Alawi was in the running for Player of the Year until she lost to UCI's Courtney Byron in the Big West Tournament Finals and Widjaja won the honors. This year Dallara was in the running for Player of the Year and beat Byron in the BWT Finals but Widjaja still won the award. :happy:


Widjaja becomes the oldest Big West Player of the Year at 24. Long Beach St. can get revenge on Widjaja through Klaudia Malenovska. If Malenovska medical redshirts she can potentially win the BWPOY as a 25 year old senior and break Widjaja's infamous oldest POY record. :happy:

Sad you put up a happy face about a girl being snubbed even though you point out she deserved to win. You seem bitter?


Sadly, when Dallara beat Widjaja two things were in play:

1) The Big West SID ded not send stats to all the coaches (I emailed Coach about that and she said she thought it was the first year that had not happened so maybe coaches were unaware.) so 'impression becomes reality.' Even I was unaware that Dallara's only BW loss was the first meeting with Widjaja. So the other coaches likely did not know that either.

2) Alawi was Frosh of Year. Byron was never a POY candidate nor Frosh of Year candidate since she was at # 3 until your coach played Yahtzee with your line up. Widjaja was perfect in BW. You seem to be INVENTING THINGS again. Dooh..... are you bitter that your coach injured a nice and talented girl so badly last year it left your team weak this year?

3) 5 of 9 teams were already gone from Indian Wells when Dallara beat Widjaja in straight sets in the semi finals. My guess would be that some or many coaches turn in their ballots about the time they get eliminated.

So add # 1 and # 2 and you see how that might occur. My impression is about 1/3 of the Big West coaches are so detached and just collecting pay checks... so they would not catch facts instead of just their assumption.

It's a shame but at least Dallara is playing in the team NCAA's. And Dallara always gets one thing: She beat a $75K professional in the pro's last collegiate match... in a key match and in straight sets. :worship::worship:


As far as Malenovska, you seem bitter again. PS, she will be a 24 year old senior until the week of the Big West tourney as a senior. Now, if she has to red shirt... perhaps she will be old enough to date you? Perhaps the 'chEATERS should begin recruiting 26 year olds?

Or maybe not chase off two of your top four players in one year like happened after the infamous 2010 season?

3. Andrea Oates/Arianna Colffer (PEP) def. Sarah Cantlay/Julie Luzar (LBSU) 8-6


- Long Beach St. even with their best team in history, at least on paper, couldn't beat Pepperdine. With the 22 year old Czech sophomore Klaudia Malenovska not playing Long Beach St. has NO CHANCE of winning.

- During the last meeting Pepperdine dominated 3 to 6 singles in straight set wins. Long Beach St. now has to move their line-up one spot up. That probably means Pepperdine will now dominate 2 to 6 singles.

- Ironically without Malenovska the playing field becomes even with Pepperdine missing Ali Walters.

- Anna Jeczmionka last season was up 5-2 in the 3rd set against Pepperdine. On the line was an NCAA at-large for her team and the 1st win over Pepperdine in LBS history. Well Jeczmionka committed one of the biggest chokes in Big West history and lost. :happy: So if Anna Jeczmionka returns to the scene of her crime and plays singles that is probably an automatic loss for Long Beach St. before the match even starts since Pepperdine owns her psychologically.

Read below and feel shame mr Gouci. But as usual, your hate comes through. Beachman pointed out 14-1-1* (with asterisk) but really, I hope this particular post concretes your reputation. Perhaps you should read your other posts about someone needing to act with the class of the LB coach? Just a thought. :help:

First off, it was a great match. 3 1/2 hours... Both teams right on the edge of winning for quite a while. Both teams hitting through and playing real tennis. None of that defensive old lady lob stuff that some underdogs (gouci can figure out who) often play to try to survive. High level tennis at all courts.


Doubles: Pepp wins at 2 & 3. Quite frankly, Pepp blew LB off the dubs courts today after losing the dubs pt 8 weeks ago. That did not prepare me for the effort LB put out in singles.

HERE IS THE KEY FOR MR. GOUCI....
Up 7-0, MARIE ZALAMEDA WAS HURT AND THEY HAD TO DEFAULT. She was on ground for a good 5 minutes before they defaulted. She could barely walk on her own and they had to help her off the court. (Later added: Zalameda did not play the next day either).

Now for those that are actual tennis fans, this was even a great match to watch on the internet. WOW... yes, LB again loses to Pepp. The last three meeting 4-3 and today 4-2 heading to possible 4-3. AAAARGH :sad:


Singles started with LB taking four of six first sets.

Pepp goes up 2-0 in a hurry with win at # 4... 6-4 and then rolls to 6-1 in second.

LB quickly follows to make it 2-1.... Anais Dallara wins her 26th match of the year beating Colffer at #1 6-1 6-1. She should have been BW Player of Year since her only league loss to Widjaja she later rectified beating Widjaja in straight sets to clinch match at tourney. She is a very special player.

Pepp goes up 3-1 with a great match win.... Bhargava beating Armstrong at # 2 (LB's usual # 3) 2-6, 6-4, 6-4. It was 4-4 in the third with a multi 'AD' game at that point to give Bhargava opportunity.

LB makes it 3-2 with three set win at #5

Pepp clinches at # 6 where a returning from injury former # 1 Walters wins 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 win over LB's usual # 7...

at the unfinished match, another great match... LB's Manasse was leading Granillo 6-5 in third and 15-all in third. Late addition to post: Just spoke with booster and a former men's collegiate player who was there... late in third set Manasse up at 5-4, 30 luv... Granillo hooked a clearly good short of line ball she called out. As Granillo had already been over ruled twice in match, an over rule would have been the point plus a point penalty for Game-Set-Match. Ref did not have guts to make the right call and decide the match. Warning to all playing Granillo in future... she's a big time hook).

- Cantly comes back to beat the Pepperdine walk-on after losing the 1st set.

6. Walters (Pep) def. Jeczmionka 6-4 in the 3rd.

- I knew if Manasse beats Granillo this would be the deciding match. This was the match I watched the last 2 sets of and will make a separate post below.


Long Beach St. will probably never beat Pepperdine. :happy:

at the unfinished match, another great match... LB's Manasse was leading Issara 6-5 and 15-all in the third
I made an assumption about Zalameda, my bad. I'll delete the post like the moderator deleted your lies about me. :happy:

But Form you can't even get your facts straight. Manasse didn't play Issara. :oh:

I apologize to all the other folks on this chat. Sadly when someone like a gouci rights falsehoods than those perceptions need to be corrected before they become perceived reality. I do apologize.


Gouci... your 'deleted' post will always be on my previous response.

Granillo/Isssra... nit pick...

it was a great match

Form, I for one am very proud of this Long Beach program, team and their staff. They put up 20 wins while missing their # 2 in 14 of 26 matches is impressive.

If only we had Klaudia today. Pepperdine was also a bit shorthanded at the bottom but also got their old # 1 back in at the bottom of line up to clinch the winning point at # 6. I would like to play them straight up the way we had played the last month prior to her injury. :hatoff: And in some ways more so after she was hurt and we took care of business and the chEaters. :nerner:

At no time did coach pull line up shennanigans or play an injured player to gain an advantage. Every day Beach Tennis does it right. We came up disappointly short of the big upset today but those that demean are only jealous.

Well done to the Long Beach State program today and for the last decade. I am a proud alum. :worship:



(and thanks for telling me how to use the smiley faces). :bigwave:

Read below and feel shame mr Gouci. But as usual, your hate comes through. Beachman pointed out 14-1-1* (with asterisk) but really, I hope this particular post concretes your reputation. Perhaps you should read you other posts about someone needing to act with the class of the LB coach? Just a thought. :help:

First off, it was a great match. 3 1/2 hours... Both teams right on the edge of winning for quite a while. Both teams hitting through and playing real tennis. None of that defensive old lady lob stuff that some underdogs (gouci can figure out who) often play to try to survive. High level tennis at all courts.


Doubles: Pepp wins at 2 & 3. Quite frankly, Pepp blew LB off the dubs courts today after losing the dubs pt 8 weeks ago. That did not prepare me for the effort LB put out in singles.

HERE IS THE KEY FOR MR. GOUCI....
Up 7-0, MARIE ZALAMEDA HURT HER ANKLE AND THEY HAD TO DEFAULT. She was on ground for a good 5 minutes before they defaulted. She could barely step on it and they had to help her off the court.

Now for those that are actual tennis fans, this was even a great match to watch on the internet. WOW... yes, LB again loses to Pepp. The last three meeting 4-3 and today 4-2 heading to possible 4-3. AAAARGH :sad:


Singles started with LB taking four of six first sets.

Pepp goes up 2-0 in a hurry with win at # 4... 6-4 and then rolls to 6-1 in second.

LB quickly follows to make it 2-1.... Anais Dallara wins her 26th match of the year beating Colffer at # 1 6-1 6-1. She should have been BW Player of Year since her only league loss to Widjaja she later rectified beating Widjaja in straight sets to clinch match at tourney. She is a very special player.

Pepp does up 3-1 with a great match win.... Bhargava beating Armstrong at # 2 (LB's usual # 3) 2-6, 6-4, 6-4. It was 4-4 in the third with an multi AD game at that point to give Bhargava opportunity.

LB makes it 3-2 with three set win at #5

Pepp clinches at # 6 where as returning from injury former # 1 Walters wins 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 win over LB's usual # 7...

at the unfinished match, another great match... LB's Manasse was leading Granillo 6-5 in third and 15-all in third.

at the unfinished match, another great match... LB's Manasse was leading Granillo 6-5 in third and 15-all in third. Late addition to post: Just spoke with booster and a former men's collegiate player who was there... late in third set Manasse up at 5-4, 30 luv... Granillo hooked a clearly good short of line ball she called out. As Granillo had already been over ruled twice in match, an over rule would have been the point plus a point penalty for Game-Set-Match. Ref did not have guts to make the right call and decide the match. Warning to all playing Granillo in future... she's a big time hook).


Fantic... this was a great tennis match... :bounce:

I saw PLENTY of those 'lady lobs' today :lol:

Depenau and Sujica of USD :oh:

And yeah, it seems a shame that Dallara is not going to Stanford, she definitely deserves it (can't protest or something? :lol: )

#47 SDSU def. #68 Wyoming 4-3 (http://www.wyomingathletics.com/sports/w-tennis/recaps/033111aaa.html)

1. Veronica Popovici (WY) def. Julia Trunk (SDSU) 4-6, 7-5, 7-5
2. Alexandra Kovacs (WY) def. Julia Wais (SDSU) 5-7, 6-1, 6-3

- Wyoming is a better team than some think having won 1 & 2 singles. SDSU edges out a close victory at a neutral site. Their ranking will climb and help LBS and hopefully get CSUN ranked.


#44 Long Beach St. def. Illinois Chicago 5-2 (http://www.longbeachstate.com/sports/w-tennis/recaps/033111aaa.html)

1. Kovaleva/Hricistova, UIC def. Dallara/Malenovska, LBSU 8-6

1. Mariya Kovaleva, UIC def. Anais Dallara, LBSU 6-0, 6-4

- Looks like Dallara is treating this trip like a vacation losing doubles and singles. :oh:

- LBS wins by the skin of their teeth with a 9-7 doubles and 7-6 3rd set tie-breaker against some cupcake team.

it seems that UIC's #1 & 2 aren't exactly cupcakes, well Kovalova is, in another sense :hearts:

:worship:Congratulations to Coach Hilt-Costello for the excellent recruit class coming in next fall.....surely these two fine additions will keep my favorite team at the top of the BWC. I expect that we will be even better this coming season than we were this past season....GO BEACH:bounce:

I.agree with you Alaskan that the team should be better next year if KM can make it back in good form; if not, the team should still be able to win the conference. I would love to see the team advance in the NCAA tourney in Anais's senior year, she has become my all time favorite player with her steady improvement and gutsy performances.

Anais is rapidly becoming a very legit #1......Klaudia's return is essential and hopefully that will happen and it should.....
