Re: Big West - 2012-13
Actually, UCI does not have good results for the last few years if you look at the actually conference standing results (based on the Big West Conference web site:
2008 - 2ND behind Long Beach State
2009 - 2ND behind Long Beach State
2010 - 3rd behind UC Santa Barbara and Long Beach State
2011 - 6th behind most of the schools
2012 - 3rd behind UC Davis and Long Beach State
The year-end tournament does not represent the conference standings. Most of the schools outside of the Southern California do not pay too much attention to the year-end tournament because they know that they do not have chance to practice there (Indian Wells Tennis Garden) ahead of time. The school who can send players to Indian Wells to practice weeks before the tournament are school like UCI and Long Beach State..... Therefore, you can see the wins always go to the two schools.
