This season UCSB is holding their own fall tournament on the same day as the CS Fullerton tourney. UCSB & Pepperdine not playing will weaken the Fullerton tournament draw.

Form what got you so mad from last time?

Could it be because Byron/Smith was placed ahead of Alawi/Dallara on the doubles alternate list. :happy:

gouci
Sep 18th, 2010, 05:52 AM
Actually it's the fact that your coach told the other coaches last spring when questioning the UCI lineup that Holladay/Kwan were the better pair and that Holladay is a "doubles specialist"... and then he entered Bryon/Smith for Rivi as his number one team.
Byron and Smith had just been recently paired together and were an unproven team at the start of the Big West tourney. Byron and Smith moved ahead of Kwan/Holladay based on their BWT results that's all.

Nah, it's not that since Alawi/Dallara have not been a pair.
So why was Alawi/Manasse broken up? Is Manasse going to pair up with Malenovska?

Is Malenovska playing singles in the Cal Invite?

Form you went from being Long Beach State's protest press secretary to now sounding like you're just on the periphery who hear's his info 2nd hand from a friend? :rolleyes:

UC Davis played in the Cal Invite last season. Too bad they're not in it this year because I wanted to see how their freshmen trio would fare.

Based on Friday results... looks like The Beach has some work to do. Appear to be some issues (though I may cut Manasse a little slack since she just got cleared for full practice 2 weeks ago following June surgery). But there are some results at 'the top of line up' that are just not good.

Dallara losing to Christian (who beat Hein and Coupez today), Alawi to Coupez is not a shame(I rate Coupez at similar level with Trunk). Did Malenovska lose to Landsman? L is no. 2 of UA and was pretty good against Cossou at Ojai, so no shame either..

I'm intimidated to post in the Big West forum because you guys are such experts and sometimes flamethrowers, but from the Northwest Regional at Stanford I'd put in a good report for the UC Davis team, and Cal Poly. UC Davis had a good presence at the tournament, they were serious players in warmup and approach, and also were having fun and handled the rain delay. Curry and Edles are improving and solid, the new freshmen won matches or pushed recognized name players. I don't know the details of your conference to compare them with other teams, but they are now a team that is worth watching and look like competitors. Cal Poly looks good too, but I expected that.

Tier 1 = LBS & UCI

Tier 2 = UCSB & Cal Poly

Tier 3 = Pacific & UC Davis

Tier 4 = CS Fullerton & UC Riverside

UC Davis is much improved but looks to finish 7th in the Big West. Partly because this may be the strongest 1-7 teams in conference history. Partly cuz Koehly and Chui seem to have gone down from where they were 1 year ago.

CSUN is a ? cuz I don't know how good their 2 players from Hong Kong are. If Sher and Cheung both play top 4 singles then CSUN jumps from Tier 3 to Tier 2.

Can Jezmionka win when something big is on the line? With the NCAA at-large bid on the line against Pepperdine she choked. With the Big West title on the line against UCI her loss to Kwan was one of the quickest matches to finish.

On a side note I can now confess that my biggest fear playing LBS in the BWT finals last season was Luzar beating Kwan again to win the Big West title. I want to thank the LBS coaching staff for going with the Pepperdine choker Jezmionka over Luzar who was the 2009 finals MVP and would have had the confidence to beat Kwan. :drool:


So the #2 seed can be going up against Davis in the 1st round of the Big West Tourney.

1. Malenovska vs Heneghan
2. Dallara vs Zumudio
3. Alawi vs Edles
4. Armstrong vs Koehly
5. Manasse vs Curry
6. Jezmionka vs Chui

Potentially not the cupcake 1st round LBS has gotten accustomed to.

The one LBS got was at 5 singles. As my absent buddy Form might say USC's Andrews won the 1st set easily then checked out when they had the match wrapped up.

I guess USC thought the chance of Long Beach St. winning was 0%. That's why USC didn't even play their best player Maria Sanchez. What a big slap in the face to LBS.

Form wherever you are you have my blessing to go on a rant and call USC cheaters! :kiss: Unlike for UCI there is documentation against USC women's tennis. They were sanctioned by the NCAA and had to vacate a season full of victories taking away their only Pac 10 title.

Not sure what you are implying about being ranked number 1 in Northern California, but players I remember ranked number 1 in Northern California seem to be doing well in the pre-season ranking college rankings.

Players ranked #1 by the USTA in Northern California have traditionally done very well in college. One exception would probably be Cal's Stephanie Chang.

For the Northern California Section Kelly Chui was ranked #1 at the end of 2008 final rankings. Since then she has had some bad losses. Playing only #4 for UC Davis seems to indicate she peaked in 2008 and has declined since. Based on her past #1 No. CA ranking I hope she doesn't disappoint in college like Stephanie Chang has done so far.

UNLV's top 2 players Lucia Batta and Aleksandra Josifoska haven't played in the Spring yet probably having to sit out some matches as NCAA eligibility penalty.

This was a huge opportunity for Pacific to steal a win. :banghead: Unfortunately Pacific was without their #3 singles Christina Goehl. But the addition of Shabby Eslami who lost 4-6 in the 3rd helping Pacific come up short, may elevate Pacific to top 4 in the Big West.

So Pacific blows an opportunity for a huge upset but gets upset by a bad team the day before. They know how to disappoint.

I think they are different cases. Chui does have significant junior accomplishments. She followed the rules and earned her undisputed #1 rank while playing lot of tournaments. The ranking system works that way, playing more tournaments provides more opportunity for points. But it only occasionally happens that there is strong consensus that the number 1 ranked player is the best player.

#1 Singles Anais Dallara April Bisharat Long Beach State University 5-7, 6-4, 10-2

Manasse still at #6 and Jeczmionka lost to Miya Jin


I was at the match today.

Great match by Isy. After a ball buster first set, Dallara stopped letting the UCI transfer sit back and hit home run balls. Once the pace slowed Bisharat lost control of the style and Dallara took over. It was a fun match to watch.

The girl from LMU at number six is god awful. That was a bad recruiting job by the LMU coach. I mean she sucks.

You really can't make a sweeping judgement when you compare that match at # 6 to the girl at # 4 who was a backboard. r Anna had been up a set and 4-3 but the girl at # 4 for LMU just kept hitting the ball back.

The Manasse match was like watching the Fullerton match the day before. Manasse was still the third or fourth singles match off the court, along with Cantlay, even with that 6-0, 6-3 score. It was truly ugly tennis.

Fantic you need to come to Long Beach to see what the girls currently look like on the court. Jeczmionka had some good wins in the fall including the UCI girl in straight sets. Cantlay had a lot of wins and is much much improved.

The LB coach has been very open with various boosters about the line up. Rocky barely played in the fall after a minor surgery and had bad results when she returned. Apparently she also did not practice at all over the break from like Thanksgiving to the weekend before practice while everyone else on the team did. What do these kids think they are getting scholarships for?

Coach told several of us yesterday that Manasse lost every challenge match this spring except for splitting with Luzar. The situation is mind boggling since two years ago she was # 3 and coach is very frustrated. For LB to be what they can truly be I would say Manasse needs to kick in the ass and get back to her old spot. The match at saw at # 6 today was sh*t and not better than the girls ahead of her.

The Long Beach coach always plays her girls in proper order and will move them up and down as they earn it. You can see that each year and especially last year when she had three different number one's during the year even as they were winning team matches.

I have seen them practice this fall. The question is not whether Manasse should be hire but how she is going to deal with being on the bench when Malenovska is eligible because she and Luzar look headed for the bench this season.

Long Beach did look pretty good today though. I look forward to kicking gouci's a## in a few weeks.

Still cracking me up... but in my momentary reappearance:

1) Sher and Man Son Hing (or whatever the spelling is) did verbal to UCI (per UCI players) but decommitted when CSUN offered money

2) FYI: The UCLA transfer also committed to the cheater nation... but apparently could not get admitted for some reason. So says the rumor on the street. Look what she is doing where she ended up... oh so close eh gucci...

3) Also heard from a Nor Cal coach your cheaters have a prominent transfer coming next year. But she ain't playing to her pedigree so far with the school she is with.

Again, with a Jimmy Johnson twang: 'How bout them Cowgirls!' Given the final point, it probably doesn't happen if the 2010 # 1 were healthy (and why is that?) or the # 2 and # 4 hadn't quit.

Now I gotta go home to catch that Academy Awards :lol:

That was both really good and really bad from LB. They swept doubles, won five of six first sets and were up 4-0. Then Armstrong at # 3 was up 3-2 in third when that happened and then I don't think she won another game. Jeczmionka at # 4 won first set easy and then got creamed because she would not move in on short balls. I have no idea what was wrong with Alawi at the start but she was down 1-4 fast. Won the second set and had two match points at 5-4 in the third. She missed maybe the easiest match point I have ever seen. Then survived one match point before losing.

I will say that Kwan had some incredible returns on balls that she should have lost. Her returns were not just to stay alive but painting corners. Very impressive.

This team is frustating. Play poorly in spots vs both Norhtridge and Irvine but they absolutely crushed Nevada who typically battles for a couple points. Good thing LB is going to get Malenovska in two weeks. That will change the ladder considerably.

Anytime you beat the (ch)eaters it is a good day but...

Glad Klaudia Malenovska will be hitting the lineup because there are a few other conference teams that appear to be much better than UCI this year. I know her addition will really help singles but not sure how things are going to shake out in doubles. Anyway, counting the matches and looking forward in watching her play, it has been a looooong process.

That was both really good and really bad from LB. They swept doubles, won five of six first sets and were up 4-0. Then Armstrong at # 3 was up 3-2 in third when that happened and then I don't think she won another game. Jeczmionka at # 4 won first set easy and then got creamed because she would not move in on short balls. I have no idea what was wrong with Alawi at the start but she was down 1-4 fast. Won the second set and had two match points at 5-4 in the third. She missed maybe the easiest match point I have ever seen. Then survived one match point before losing.

I will say that Kwan had some incredible returns on balls that she should have lost. Her returns were not just to stay alive but painting corners. Very impressive.

This team is frustating. Play poorly in spots vs both Norhtridge and Irvine but they absolutely crushed Nevada who typically battles for a couple points. Good thing LB is going to get Malenovska in two weeks. That will change the ladder considerably.

guess I don't have really much to add to this detailed recap :worship:

Unlike the chEaters, UCSB just came from 2-3 down to beat LB. Malenovska eligible next week but it is now a five team race. The chEaters (who crippled their #1 and had # 2 & 4 quit from last years team) are not one of those five. First LB regular season loss since 2007. Not good.

The UCSB coach must have enjoyed this :drool: and is celebrating the big come from behind win. :woohoo:


When LBS's Klaudia Malenovska comes back someone has to go on the LBS bench. Manasse should be making her case of staying in the line-up over Jeczmionka or Cantlay. Instead it looks like she just quit today. :o

If Manasse does go to the bench then Long Beach St.'s entire singles line-up will be all foreigners. What top 10 team has a singles line-up of all 6 foreigners besides Baylor? Certainly not Stanford who plays all Americans.

This took a little bit of research but gouci might want to temper his comments about Big West internationals. Pacific has all foreign starters if Nezhura were healthy and Northridge has 6 international girls in the top 7 of their line up with Brooke Doane the only US player who is from Hawaii.

Even in the Pac 10, Cal also is all foreign if they were healthy and most of the others have multiple foreign players.

I do not believe anyone can make a credible argument using Stanford being all American since they are the number one destination in college tennis for every player. Their coach does not recruit but rather she chooses which players she wants.

My favorite team is primarily international also. The USTA lady even admits there are not enough skilled US players to adequately fill all the scholarships. So long as my team wins I really do not care where the players came from.

For players on the University of Pacific team, I know that Susan Te, is a home grown Northern California Player. Te has been playing well at #6. For Cal, Davis is an
another NorCal player, and she didn't get her starting spot because of injury. Stephany Chang, is a Norcal player, who was expected to play. I don't know why is hasn't gotten the results, but the plan was for her to start.

SDSU takes advantage of Pepperdine playing with walk-on Megan Moore and without starters Marie Zalameda and Ali Walters.


This should get SDSU ranked and then maybe get Cal St. Northridge ranked as a result. Long Beach St. who got lucky beating SDSU, without SDSU's #2 Alicia Aguilar playing, will also benefit from this.

UCI, LBS, UCSB, Cal Poly, UC Davis. Wow looks like the Big West will have 5 teams ranked at season's end and maybe 6 if CSUN can beat UCI. CSUN getting ranked would really give UCSB, CP & UCD a rankings boost.

UCI's 2 big wins have made an NCAA at-large within reach of LBS, UCSB, Cal Poly and UC Davis :kiss: but they'll have to go out and beat 1 if not 2 more ranked non-conference teams on their own to solidify their bubble chances.

But why isn't Kapshai playing singles? She is #1 player, is she injured? :confused:
If they play their lineup in full no Big West team could beat them..

Well, that statement was proven false rather quickly I would say. Go Beach!

#61 Long Beach St. def. #29 Sac. St. 5-2 (http://www.hornetsports.com/sports/wtennis/release.asp?release_id=9485)

- A full line-up LBS with Malenovska beats a full line-up Sac. St. with Kapshai. LBS pulls out 2 close third set wins.

- I'm very glad to see Kapshai back so Sac. St. can possibly upset #28 Arizona on Monday. :cheer:

Pulled their NC weight

UCI - def. #29 Sac. St. & #39 Boston College
LBS - def. #29 Sac. St. & San Diego St.
CSUN - def. San Diego St.

San Diego St. def. #30 Pepperdine and will be ranked in the next poll.

UCSB, Cal Poly and UC Davis need to pull their own weight in non-conference by defeating at least 1 ranked team. :help:


Chance to pull NC weight

UCSB - vs. #48 St. Marys & #35 SMU
Cal Poly - vs. #59 Fresno St. & #48 St. Mary's
UC Davis - vs #29 Sac. St.

The best chance the Big West has of getting the most NCAA at-larges or any at all is if all 6 of the teams above end up pulling their own non-conference weight by season's end. :hi5:

Agreed.... with their # 1 (she is good) in line up they are very good. UCI caught a break with the weakened ladder.

5 1/2 hours match... exhausted cheering. Longer than a baseball game by x 2.

Good result ... I'm guessing there is cringing throughout the league

Go Sac State... seriously with their # 1 playing that is a very good squad... beat UA

Sac. St. depends on result against Arizona on Monday.

Sac St v Arizona match (today) won't count in tomorrow's 3/15 ranking. Only results through Sunday.

3/22 poll will then likely see LB jump over UCI since LB has win over UCI.

As noted before, UCI beating BC but BC defeating LB will create a continous circle of ranking. Likewise SDSU beating Pepperdine and UCI but LB defeating SDSU will do the same. And now UCI and LB have wins over Sac State who did beat St Marys and Pepp.

Now IF Pepp defeats LB on Friday, then you really have an incestual ranking circle going.

Pepperdine might be the key to all of this. They really have just one big win (Texas) but a couple of losses to Sac State and SD State where Pepp played without all their regulars (injury or just screwing around with line up???). I point the Pepp situation out as they played full strength against USC just a couple days later. No doubt they will field full strength against LB who have 'almost' beat them two years in a row (Dallara hurt in warm up fall 2 years ago; Jeczmionka had match point last year... LB seems to have a Pepperdine cloud).

Sac State did the same line up gamble on Friday and got burned... had they played their # 1 vs Irvine they may have been able to find four points but instead waited one extra day to play her in singles where she was very very competitive and more importantly were able to push the ladder down.

Lesson: Messing with your line up against mid majors is never a good idea as they can bite you.

It will be very interesting to see the rankings on 3/29 after a couple more spin cycles sort this out.

Gouci should share this feeling: ANNOYING

Why is the Sac State coach continuing to hide his nationally ranked singles # 1. Does not play her in singles vs UCI... but plays (loses but is very healthy) vs LB... but does not play her in singles again against Arizona so they get crushed. Crushed including 2 three set loses and two fairly close straight set loses. If he even inserts her at # 1... Sac State beats Arizona. This guy should be fired.

Hello coach: YOUR JOB IS TO WIN MATCHES... EVEN IF YOU ARE IN THE CRAPPY BIG SKY AND WILL MAKE NCAA'S NO MATTER HOW BAD YOU ARE AGAINST GOOD TEAMS

ANNOYING.... Irvine AND Long Beach can kiss the 'big' Sac State win goodbye because they will plummet now.

- The Sac. St. coach wasn't hiding his #1. "Kapshai, still feeling the effects of a sprained ankle, did not compete in singles."
- Arizona also sat out it's #2 Natasha Marks probably after Sac. St. informed them Kapshai was sitting out. So you can't assume Sac. St. would have won with Kapshai.

ANNOYING.... Irvine AND Long Beach can kiss the 'big' Sac State win goodbye because they will plummet now.I wasn't really counting on Sac. St. to beat Arizona anyway. But Sac. St. still has plenty of chances for big wins.

I favor Sac. St. to beat Fresno St.

I like Sac. St. chances of upsetting Washington with a walk-on at #6. SS can win the doubles point and sweep #4, #5 & #6 singles. Washington's #3 singles Samantha Smith I would call a toss-up vs Sac. St.

Sac. St. has a win over St. Mary's who's ranking should skyrocket after recently beating #26 San Diego. So at the end of the year Sac. St. will still probably be UCI and LBS's biggest win. :hehehe:

Dartmouth can provide a huge boost to how many teams the Big West will have ranked at season's end.

Dartmouth takes a Big West road swing:
3/19 at CSUN
3/20 at UCI
3/22 at Cal Poly
3/23 at UCSB

Currently #73 Dartmouth only has a ranked win over #60 Virginia Tech which isn't enough to keep them ranked.

But Dartmouth still plays #23 Yale, #37 Brown, #50 Princeton and #51 Harvard. If Dartmouth could just upset 1 of these teams Dartmouth would probably be ranked at season's end. A ranked Dartmouth would give those 4 Big West teams a rankings boost.

Now that I think about it, the Big West would be better off if Dartmouth were able to defeat 1 of those 4 Big West teams. ;) Maybe Dartmouth could beat UCSB who can play really bad or really well. That win should keep Dartmouth ranked and give the other 3 Big West teams a rankings boost.

The rankings were very generous to the Big West. :cheer:

44 Long Beach St.
56 UC Irvine
57 Cal Poly
59 UCSB
74 UC Davis

- The best part about having 5 ranked teams is merely playing conference matches produces ranked wins for the Big West.

Cal Poly at UC Davis
Cal Poly at LBS
Cal Poly at UCI
UCSB at UC Davis
LBS at UC Davis
UCI at UCSB

Big West matches yet to be played will produce 6 more ranked wins for the conference regardless of who wins.

Not to mention 1 team will pick up a ranked win in the 1st round of the Big West Tournament. Two teams will pick up ranked wins in the BWT semi-finals. The BWT winner will pick-up a final rankings boost for NCAA seeding purposes.



Upset chances for Big West teams.

32 Arizona (to play UCI)
37 Pepperdine (to play LBS)
39 St. Mary's (to play UCSB & Cal Poly)
42 Sac. St. (to play UC Davis)
54 Oregon (to play LBS)
66 Texas Arlington (to play UCSB)
67 Fresno St. (to play Cal Poly)

- #54 Oregon became an extra rankings boost dessert LBS & Sac. St. didn't know they had coming. :lol:

- Sac. St.'s big matches to play updated. I'm not worried about Sac. St. They should win half if not more of these games and be highly ranked at year's end.

LB again falls short at Pepperdine. Third year in a row to be close 4-3 loss although this year they did not have a match point.

I have been watching on the live scoring. LB won doubles but Armstrong/Alawi/Manasse are not nearly what they were a year ago. Not even close.

That is too bad because Malenovska won in straight sets and Dallara won 7-5 in the third set. THE REST OF THE TEAM SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO BOTH OF THEM. For Alawi, last year's # 1, to be losing at # 4 is pathetic. And Manasse is just a waste of scholarship at this point.

If coach can find a way to REVIVE the three I mentioned than this team would be really be something. This is very disappointing so far this year. It is a good team but it should be so much better. :fiery:

Mar 19th, 2011, 05:37 AM
I cannot argue that. When Alawi has eight set points today and loses the first set than I cannot argue your suggestion.

Though I would argue the 2006 team was the most talented (#18 in the country, only BW team to ever be a # 2 seed or win a round in post season).

Pepperdine did play their full line up today (without Walters who seems out for the year) as opposed to the weaker line ups versus Hawaii, Sac State and San Diego State. They are a good team (5-2 loser to USC last week and have beat Texas) but LB had the opportunity at # 4 singles and blew it. Again.

Thank goodness under achieving was still good enought to beat UCI (without Malenovska) a few weeks ago. It was not good enough with match points blown vs UCSB or BC though. Brutal season.

I will say Dallara and Malenovska are really good right now. Full of fight and fun to watch. No doubt they will lose matches but they are fun to watch. I would have to agree with Beachman that apologies are in order from the other girls.

IMO, LB is the best BW school on paper but the Cal Poly depth at 3-6 makes them the prohibitive favorite. It is about finding four points and LB seems to be stuck at 3 far to often this year (3 times now). But that is why the play the matches.

Maybe LB can put a cast on Manasse and move her to # 3? That's how you win Big West titles when you are short one point, right? Just sayin!

Gouci, this post is going to frighten you... I agree with it all

CSUN will be whoever finishes # 3 in Big West bad first round nightmare. They are just good enough to wing someone.

UCSB is not ranked if LB does not choke away that match: see Alawi and Manasse; does that sound familiar? (I will help you... UCSB 4-3 loss was those two, Boston College 4-3 choke were Alawi and Armstrong who had multiple match points, Pepp 4-3 loss was Alawi with 8 first set points and Armstrong and Manasse who failed to compete. LB really should be 14-1 if not for multiple veterans not holding up their end. Only USC has 'beat' LB, the others are matches LB gave away. They are good teams but LB had opportunities to win all three).

CP gets first real test today on neutral site

YES, Baylor just hurt Big West as they become yet another team to mess with line up and get burned this year (ask Pepperdine who have done it multiple times). These odd ball wins are really junking the rankings.

YES, it does appear they spun the rankings twice. Which means we have no clue what rankings might look like this week? In the end, Big West will only get one team in unless LB were to run off a series of wins (DePaul, Oregon, Cal Poly, Davis). I am not sure that would even be enough and I'd more likely bet on LB going .500 with a bunch of 4-3 wins or loses in that schedule. I think Big West teams will likely finish 45-60 area.

Ranking could be stronger but having two of the worst team in D1 tennis in the league does not help either. Last year at this time the ITA accidentally posted the entire 300+ team list for a few hours and CS Fulleron was dead last. One year later neither Fullerton or Riverside have a D1 win this season (Bakersfield is still in their conditional transition period and non-scholarship in tennis too). So the Titans/Highlanders are either last or arguably close to it again. Those matches don't exactly help the rankings when the season ends.

If at the start of the season you told me that LBSU would win the doubles point and that both Anais and Klaudia would win at one and two against Pepperdine, I would have bet the house that the team could have picked up a point down the line up. That would be especially true if I knew Jacki and Rachel would be playing at the four and five position. Well, I would be homeless now pushing a shopping cart and scratching my head in disbelief. I have to think that someone down the line will get their act together sooner or later but all the key out of conference matches are flying by. Regardless if LBSU wins the auto bid to the NCAA tourney, this will be a disappointing season since many of us will be thinking about what could have been if the players just played to their potential. The trip to middle America could change all that if the team pulls a couple of upsets but I will not be betting the shopping cart this time around.

Some thoughts from above.

- Jenifer Widjaja lost to Fresno St.'s Marianne Jodoin. It doesn't look like Widjaja will be ranked at season's end and may not go to the NCAA singles tournament. Widjaja can win Big West Player of the Year but the conference may not have a NCAA singles representative.
- For all the ranked teams the Big West has it doesn't have any ranked singles players. Last season Widjaja was able to feed on the rankings of other Big West #1s like Matzenauer and Novak.

- Wyoming defeated Texas-Arlington 5-2 and UCSB destroyed Wyoming 7-0 so UCSB dropped another stinker losing to UTA. However this misstep may not hurt UCSB. A win over #59 UCSB will keeps #66 UTA ranked. A win over ranked UTA & #56 UCI will get Wyoming ranked. And a ranked Wyoming gives UCSB another ranked win besides LBS.

The match #39 St. Mary's at #59 UCSB today has been postponed to Mon. 3/28.

St. Mary's plays at Pepperdine Sun. 3/27 and at UCSB Mon. 3/28. Catching St. Mary's on the 2nd game of back to back road games gives UCSB a slight advantage. Just maybe UCSB can pull their weight in non-conference and upset a slightly tired St. Marys team. :bounce:

- I expect SDSU's rise to get CSUN ranked next week and give LBS a boost into the 30s.

The rankings have a footnote which says:

I wonder if the ranking for UC Davis was adjusted to place them above UCI or did Davis' win over UCI just kick in this week?

The Dartmouth swing through the Big West started and ended in DISASTER for the conference. :explode::explode:

- 1st CSUN lost #3 singles Nina Jaworowski to injury just 1 week before playing #72 Dartmouth. CSUN's match with Dartmouth was very close. CSUN probably defeats Dartmouth with Jaworowski. :banghead:

- A CSUN win over #44 San Diego St. + #72 Dartmouth would have guaranteed CSUN a ranking next week. A ranked CSUN would have given a rankings boost to LBS, Cal Poly, UCSB and UC Davis who all beat CSUN. :banghead::banghead:


Don't get me started on UCSB! :fiery:

- Was the UCSB coach clueless about the NCAA at-large ramifications for the Big West riding on the Dartmouth match? :shout: Dartmouth was taking the match lightly too not playing their regular #5 in favor of bench jockey but local girl Decker-Sadowski. If the UCSB coach was aware he probably would have played Dartmouth 1st or at least moved the Northwestern start time up 1 hour. As it turns out that would have allowed the Dartmouth match to finish. :crazy:

- Cal Poly was in a win-win situation about to take 1 step closer to securing an NCAA at-large. They would of gotten a rankings boost from the winner of the UCSB-Dartmouth match regardless of who won because they beat both teams. With the match abandoned Cal Poly gets screwed big time. For LBS it would be like the UCI-Sac. St. match not finishing and neither team notching a big win to help LBS.

- The best result for the conference would have been Dartmouth beating UCSB and UCSB avoiding a loss to Northwestern. Dartmouth could have won the match on 1-4 singles if it had finished. A higher ranked Dartmouth could have pushed both Cal Poly & UCI to within 1 big win of an NCAA at-large bid. And since Cal Poly & UCI will play each other, the winner of that could probably have punched their NCAA at-large ticket.

- Instead the worst case happened where UCSB loses to Northwestern and the Dartmouth match is inconclusive. :facepalm:

Well, two that I mentioned are from California.

For all three, taking one match trips is not only an expensive gamble that they won't get rained out, but quite frankly it's a spring break junket.

It looks like the purpose of the NU trip wasn't match play but to start the transition to outdoor play. Even if their match with ucsb was rained out, the trip still wouldn't have been a waste of time or a vacation in my opinion.

Well if I'm flying anywhere for Spring Break it won't be to Chicago. That is (very) ironic that LBS would be traveling there for what likely could turn out to be indoor matches because of rain or cold weather.

Earlier point was just that because a team travels to an outdoor location to practice, that isn't a bad decision.

Sadly I am not making the trip since it is also Opening Day at Wrigley Field this coming week. In 2005 they did play outside versus UIC and I recall hearing they could have played outside vs ND but for some reason did not due to the forecast. Chicago is obviously a crap shoot at this time of year. I just looked on the web and last spring on April 1st it was 70 degrees there.

LB has for years alternated their major trip between going east or going to AZ/LV. Boston, DC, twice to Chicago area. Coach believes in giving the team the experience of other parts of the US as well as good tennis versus other opponents. A number of Boston area schools have come to LB over the years so she probably was also returning those matches. The other years LB goes to either Arizona or Las Vegas. The hand out at the recent matches says LB is going their to play UNLV, Utah and Texas Tech next year.

It certainly is better than going on a one match expensive trip or going to the islands where a number of Big West teams then play D2 Hilo. In what way is that well spent money? LB went to Hawaii in 2004 (and 1997 I believe) and both times had to battle constant rain delays as I recall coach explaining.

The basic point you are missing is that I believe practice in and of itself justifies a trip like that. Getting the right mix of practice and matches is pretty important. Also what is the value of teambuilding and managing injuries, burnout, etc.? I don't know but I'll let the coaches figger that out......

I will agree getting outside helps but my point was that I find it incredible to spend that kind of money for a junket. Play matches. The NCAA allows this during spring break but not the rest of the season but it must be great to be at a school where they can drop $10,000-$15,000 to go on a four or five day vacation and play just one match.

Any other time of year there are restrictions on travel (cannot leave campus more than 48 hours before game/match and must be back with 24 hours). I recently learned the Pac 10 has even more stringent travel rules for league games/matches. All this is to try to eliminate the 'vacation/junket' spending.

To finish, I will be honest and say I believe matches are better than practice against your same teammates at this point of the season anyway. Having said that I would note that most (not all but most) schools doing this are in the Top 20 so what are they afraid of anyway?

Props to Notre Dame for a week in Florida playing matches.

Trap game

- A trap game is when a school overlooks their next opponent and concentrates on a bigger showdown against a ranked team the following match. UCI was playing unranked UC Davis 1st then #54 Long Beach St. next in the same week. Davis was a trap game for UCI.

- UCI knows Davis has improved but before the meeting the reputation of UC Davis was a perennial 7th place finisher in the Big West. However UCI without Hammel would have to step it up to beat rival LBS. It would be natural for UCI to overlook Davis and focus extra on LBS.

- UC Davis on the other hand have their top 4 singles players all from Orange County. They were coming home to play infront of their family and friends and probably were fired up to play UCI, the defending Big West Tournament champs.

- Example of another trap game.
UCSB loses to Cal Poly before facing LBS. UCSB saw CP has having graduated their top 4 singles players. On the other hand UCSB wanted to break LBS's conference winning streak.


UC Davis at Sac. St. probably involved a young Davis team letting up after getting ranked #60 combined with getting thrown a curve ball playing indoors.

Interesting that UCI sports info (the home team since Pacific would be travelling home) did not bother to post this result on the ITA site.

I was afraid of this happening. UCI matches up badly against Pacific. :help:
- Pacific's #1 singles is Big West automatic.
- Pacific has a better #2 singles than Kwan.
- UCI's walk-on is almost an automatic loss in #6 singles.
- UCI has no margin for error when trying to get the 4 other points.

If UCI was going to get upset I wanted it to be against CSUN. That would help out the conference the most. But now UCI can finish anywhere from 5,6,7 and has to beat CSUN to win the 5th spot tie-breaker.

- UCI's ranking is also headed south fast with Dartmouth dropping out of the rankings and the loss to Pacific kicking in.


Real or pretenders?

- UCSB lost what is by definition a trap game against Cal Poly. So IMHO Cal Poly hasn't really been tested by a top 60 team yet. We are about to see if Cal Poly is real or are pretenders when they play #26 Pepperdine, #44 Long Beach St., #48 St. Mary's and #57 UCI. I see all 4 as potential losses for Cal Poly.

- UCI lost a classic trap game to UC Davis. So we are about to also see if UC Davis is real or are pretenders when they play #44 Long Beach St. and #59 UCSB.

- The good news is Cal Poly and UC Davis will play each other 1st so at least one of them gets to win before the tough parts of their schedules kick in. Although Davis should beware of Nevada before playing Cal Poly.

- Pacific still plays #42 Cal Poly, #59 UCSB, #44 LBS and CSUN. If they win all 4 Pacific will be Big West regular season champs and be an NCAA at-large lock even before playing the Big West Tournament. :lol: The real question is can a healthy Pacific add any more chaos to the BWT seedings? :smash:

Gouci, your venom for LB blows.your credibility again.

7-6 was point number five in match. LB clearly not playing well but just two points (had match pts vs both UCSB and BC) and LB would otherwise be top 30. But obviously they can win or lose virtually any match outside the top 25.

UIC indoor courts super fast and took time to adjust I am told. UIC would be decent Big West team. Was told as good as UCSB or UCI if playing indoors.

How does SD State win help CSUN? This aint handgrenades. Close is still a loss for ranking.

Meliuk led the 2nd set 4-2 then gave up 4 in a row to lose 4-6. :banghead:

Obviously Meliuk didn't deal with the pressure of closing out a set well. :help: Meliuk was the more aggressive, harder and better hitter and Smith had no shame resorting to moon balls. :o Meliuk would make some wild errors and you could tell she was thinking about losing too much.

Smith would hit a short ball baiting Meliuk to approach the net where she was just totally lost. Meliuk was clueless about closing off the angles. She would be in the left side service box and volley the ball to Smith's forehand giving Smith a huge opening to hit a cross court winner instead of volleying it to her backhand and making Smith hit it down the line into a narrower alley. :facepalm: The coach needs to tell Meliuk after the approach shot she either needs to move up closer to the net or go back down to the baseline. There's a reason the middle of the court is no man's land. Smith would then pass her or lob over her with ease. :explode:

A ranked Pacific notably helps
1. Cal Poly

3. Santa Clara - ironically could help Cal Poly & Davis again
4. Fresno St. - which helps Sac. St. and could help Cal Poly.

6. Nevada if they beat Pacific - would in turn help CSUN, Davis, UCI & LBS along with Sac. St., Santa Clara & Fresno St.

74. UCSB 64


- LBS just had their highest ranked win of the year against #42 Cal Poly and they only moved up to 42? I thought they would break into the 30s for sure. :scratch:

- I expected UCI to move up a little but the CSUN win was entered after the deadline.


I am very surprised Pacific isn't ranked this week with wins over #60 UCI & #64 UCSB.

For comparison:

#68 Central Florida = no current ranked wins
#72 UNC Wilmington = no current ranked wins

unranked Wyoming - def. #60 UCI & #62 Texas-Arlington

unranked Pacific - def. #60 UCI & #74 UCSB

How does Central Florida & UNC Wilmington get ranked over Wyoming & Pacific? :confused:

This wouldn't have happened last year. This makes me suspect that they tweaked the ranking formula for this season.

Rankings are progressive. They factor in more and more of your 'best' wins as the season goes. So each week more and more wins are factored. Thus one big win becomes less and less valuable. Most of the Big West will continue to slide from this point forward as the 'power conferences' are able to add more than four or five big wins to the calculation.

I am not sure but think the 51-75 continues to be tinkered with by the 'committee' so regional agendas still come into play. Those two examples make little sense.

Senior Day at Cal Poly

Apparently Pane and Markhoff are not the only one's playing their last home match.

Saw it come up on a job email about faculty positions.. totally unrelated to tennis but regards faculty positions so that must be why it came across.

22 years - CS Fullerton
18 years - UC Riverside
16 years - UC Santa Barbara
16 years - UC Davis
15 years - UC Irvine
14 years - CS Northridge
14 years - Long Beach St.
11 years - Cal Poly
08 years - Pacific

The long tenured coaches in the Big West is one reason the conference continues to get better through the years.

With that win 6 - 1 over UC Davis, Long Beach State's women's tennis would have the tiebreaker over Cal Poly for the No. 1 seed in the BWT.

#46 San Diego St. def. BYU 7-0 (http://www.byucougars.com/Filing.jsp?ID=15503)


#63 Dartmouth def. #45 Brown 4-3 (http://www.dartmouthsports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=48775&SPID=4700&DB_LANG=C&ATCLID=205137477&DB_OEM_ID=11600) :woohoo:

- Dartmouth is 5-0 in the Ivy League and alone in 1st place.

- They still have road games at #36 Yale and #66 Harvard.

- 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:

- 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.
