    Maybe the AAC in Memphis and A10 in Charlottesville but that's probably it.

    My friend is with Winthrop women's tennis and he told me about some crazy stuff going on in the big south women's final. Winthrop was down 2-3 in the final to Charleston Southern. Winthrop girl on 5 wins to tie it at 3, the girl on 6 thinks that's the clinching point so age throws her racquet in celebration midpoint but then she realizes that she actually has to finish. No big deal
    Though she's up 6-4 5-0 40-15. Well she loses the next two points then the game. Still in commanding 5-1 position. Then the collapse comes and it's now tied 5-5. Then came the rain. The match was suspended at 5-5 in the 2nd. It's still raining. If they cannot get the match on by 7 pm then the whole match will have to be replayed in Charleston because they are the higher seed. (Big south does not allow indoor in the tournament, no exceptions) . So they are praying for the rain to stop

    South Carolina State will play for their 8th and 10th straight MEAC titles for men and women, respectively. Matches are today in Cayce, SC at 11am and 2pm. Norfolk State men and Bethune-Cookman women will provide the challenge. Bethune-Cookman women beat SCST in the regular season 4-3, while NSU has split their last two outings with the men.

    Columbia takes the Ivy League title dropping only 1 point in all of conference play (Given no matches get played out once they are decided). Very impressive season from this team

    Belmont dropped a tough one to Jacksonville State 4-3 in the Ohio Valley final. Brian Baker is still a volunteer assistant there and he came down to the Vandy/Florida match yesterday after the OVC final. He said their #6 (who lost the deciding match) started cramping after the 1st set TB and could barely move over the final 2 sets. Tennys Sandgren was watching the SEC Tournament as well said he was still recovering from hip surgery.

    really bad downfall this year for them
    remember they were in the Blue-Gray-Finals, and led Boise for a long time of the match... :shock::oops:

    but their season after then went on a downfall
    but they still ve beaten 3 teams, who surely makes NCAAs...
    (Miss St., NC State , Texas Tech)
    they will lose Argente & Heugas, that will really hurt

    SF took doubles from LMU and also looks tied in singles

    Pacific took doubles from BYU, BYU won 3 first sets , Pacific 2 right now

    it is not over yet, livescoring turned the #1 and 2# singles around in favor of st.clara now, but St Marys still a decent chance to win

    WCC - Santa Clara beat San Francisco 4-0. Doubles point came down to a TB and San Fran was up on the other 3 courts when Santa Clara wrapped it up. Pacific and Portland are tied at 2 but Portland is close to making it 3-2. The other 2 appear headed to a 3rd set.
