Www 2013 Ncaa Team Tournament
 
Since this is an unusually volatile season :lol:
Thought making a separate thread would be appropriate.

Brag and bash all you want :kiss:

USC really should overcome that Semifinal barrier, already 3 tournaments in a row, starting from WTI last year :lol:

I think UNC is still the lesser team than USC/UCLA, but they have one thing going for them;

Caroline Price is still not playing doubles. So when she does, beware! :lol:

UF will really miss Will.

Because she was also a very good dbls player; she just won ITF 25K at RSF with Muhammed. See how UF is struggling against UNC now in dbls..and both USC and UCLA won dbls point against UNC at WTI.

And of course, not only that..Will playing #1 singles meant that UF could guarantee a win from Embree at #2.

Now that option is gone.

So I guess thus far

First tier; USC/UCLA

2nd tier; UNC/UF/DUKE/STAN, etc..

I think UF misses Mather more. She was tough and the team fed off that. Early in the season, UF is lacking some toughness, though they showed some today against UNC.

I still think UF is the team to beat outdoors. And will be until someone does it when it counts.

My money is on USC. They're solid at all positions and have a great number 7 and 8. They are one of the best outdoors teams.

It will be interesting to see if Ayaka Okuno gets clearance. With her in the lineup, Georgia could do battle with the top teams, because right now I feel like they're about one match short

Is she better than Silvia Garcia, who beat Van Nguyen in 2? If not..
Well, she did once beat Christina Makarova.

She was a good dbls player, but UGA is pretty good in dbls already, so..

We'll see?

They need to be more ruthless and be more hungry for glory :lol:

We'll see how they do against UCLA! I can't wait for that match up. They'll have some fun battles these next few years!

Why is she waiting to be cleared? Didn't she graduate early and I don't think she's played pros. Could it be her relationship to Redfoo?

I'm thinking she could be a solid 5 or 6. Probably not better than Garcia, who is definitely one of the best #4s in the country

I'm not sure. Maybe because she graduated early, which I know was a relatively late decision, they just didn't have time to clear her before she got to Athens.

Yeah too bad I'll probably miss the 1st match due to IW.

I guess USC has a pretty high chance of winning it all.

I doubt sgls 1-3 will lose to any team, bar maybe Stanford, and you know, USC SWEPT those positions against the vaunted Gibbsy-Ahn-Krista :hearts: Maybe if Caroline plays #3 for UNC, maybe they can win THAT one, only :devil: Oh Anett has 3-0 advantage against Danielle, but I doubt Danielle will lose again, she's playing so well now :angel:

So, what USC has to do is secure the dbls win, and since #1 hasn't lost a single match thus far :lol: They should concentrate on #2 and 3.

And get that one win from sgls 4-6, and there you go, USC winning formula :hearts:
Incidentally, Gabi, except that one terrible upset loss against UNC, has clinched a lot of matches for them :worship: I'm sure she's DYING to play UNC again :devil:

I have a feeling Stanford will take it. They aren't really expected to win and I think that will help them :p
