Baylor has dominated the Big 12 Conference under the leadership of Coach Knoll and Coach Joey Scrivano; the men have won 10 Big 12 regular season titles and seven conference tournament titles since 2000, while the women have won eight regular season titles and six conference tournaments since 2003.

How does Texas look next yr? I know the got Breuanna Addison who will be a great addition, but they always seem to be missing a solid #2 and #3 players like the Top 5-10 teams have to really break through. Hopefully they will be getting another one as they lose Krista Damico who has been a great player for Texas.
Texas loses Krista Damico to graduation and now Cierra Gaytan Leach and Alex Martin from the line-up. Those are pretty significant losses. Besides Brea Addison, do they have anyone coming in? They could be in trouble if they can't find another player to be in the Top 4 of their line-up.
i believe Bree is still going to Texas, but is Texas bringing one else? they really need some new additions with their losses.
Does anyone have any update on Texas Longhorns? THey've been playing with 6 players all semester long and 1 of them is a walk-on too. I hope they are getting some spring semester players, or they could be struggling this yr
I'm sure somebody will answer your question ASAP if there's information on it.

As for BU, no Kosakowski and Budai, wonder what happened to them.

And coach Scrivano says Burgic is projected to play #1, according to their website

BU's article about 3 newcomers

'"Alex is a really good ball striker," Scrivano said. "She plays a style of tennis that we really like by taking the ball early and being aggressive. '

I agree, she played at Riviera I think in her freshman year, and I was pretty impressed with her hitting.

'Scrivano expects to add at least one more player before the dual-match season starts in January.'

3. Alex Clay/Megan Horter (BU) def. Tara Panu/Megan Moore (PEP) 8-5

Match Notes
Pepperdine 0-6; National ranking #46
Baylor 4-5; National ranking #18
Order of finish: Doubles (3,1); Singles (1,6,2,5,4,3)
"We're not as bad in doubles as everyone thinks," Scrivano said. "There's some obstacles that we're dealing with that make it very difficult to compete in singles and doubles. We're a team that's a work in progress, as I've said many times. The reality is that we have a lot of new players to our system who didn't play in the preseason, so the bottom line is that we aren't going to be playing our best tennis in February. To all the people who don't know better, we're going to be much better in the second half of the season and in the post season when it really matters. We're getting there."

To kick off singles play, BU placed another point on the board with No. 13 Burgic's straight-set win over Guillermo, 6-2, 6-2. Burgic is now 7-2 in the top spot for the Lady Bears.

"Ema's becoming a very mature player," Scrivano said. "She's developing nicely. We like the way she's handling herself on the court, and her mindset has improved so much since last year. We need her to continue to do this and take it to another level."

Take it to ANOTHER level? :eek:

2/2/2013 Dual Match Pos. #1 #4 Lauren Embree #2 University of Florida Loss 6-4, 6-7 (6), 1-0 (10-7)

Never heard of her. Being no. 4 is not to be sniffed at, but you should beware that very few good players play the TE16 circuit, they go straight from the 14s to ITFs, so ranks are misleading. (The high tariff events Euro 16 champs and the summer and winter cups do get good turnouts, but they're not enough to unskew the rankings.)

she has a pretty good forehand, serve needs some work. Mental capacity is maybe all not there yet.... She hits a slice backhand on every backhand...literally every one. Probably an amazing clay court player. hasn't translated to hard yet
