    When McLachlan hits his one hand backhand it's a nice shot but he keeps slicing everything back. Cunha eating him up

    3-1 as the frenchman misses an opening he created

    let's get this last one before the switch

    mini break on a bad cal error - 4-3 mengel to serve

    overhead from mid court by cal makes it 4-4 - big, big, point

    nice win by cal, mengel will be thinking about those three match points for a bit

    when you basically start up 3-0 with a better #1 player and way too much depth at #s 5 and 6, you should probably win the match

    but all four other guys (well, three and dubs) decided to lose - unfortunate but i'll take that rematch on a neutral site in NCAAs for sure

    Season changing win. Very strong effort from the guys, they wanted this match so bad. To tell you the truth after our loss to SDSU I wasn't feeling good about this one, good thing the team believed more than I did! Bayane is a hero!

    Duke has all the talent in the world but again they show that they can be out-fought. (Illinois and UNC last year other examples). They need one of their players to really show some steel in tough situations, like Cunha did today.

    Gonna call exaggeration somewhat on this, if Wagland was gone for 4.5 minutes then he would have racked enough Time Violation Pt Penalties to end the match anyways, so not knowing bathroom facilities at Starkvegas, not sure the timeline holds up.
    Men either have 90 sec on changeover or 2 min set break (or coach time) otherwise it is considered a medical and already a pt penalty, then time violations begin racking up with first being a warning.
    Not sure a referee would let this fly, much less the MS State Coach.

    Unless the coaches agree otherwise, of course.

    Cardinal on a roll. Downs the bronchos 4-3. Can they go straight to NCAA team title undefeated from this point ?

    of course but even 4.5 minutes is a little overkill unless there are no bathrooms at the facilities.

    Virginia takes dubs over Baylor. Baylor up early breaks on 2 and 4 while UVA up break on 3.

    Baylor with 1st sets at 1 and 4. Everywhere else on serve...very surprising start for Baylor in singles.

    Well it's pretty evident now that Baylor is very talented. This is a top 10 team. Looks like the new pieces are starting to gel nicely.

    Texas had Virginia on the ropes like this a couple years ago and completely collapsed. Lets see if Baylor can keep it up.
