    Things starting to get interesting. Gators up 3-0 but Vandy about to win at 1 & 2. Johnson down a set but up a double break at 4 and they are just starting a 3rd set on 6

    Not able to stay around for the finals today but I'd be very surprised if Texas A&M didn't win. Adams and Vinsant should both win at 1 & 2. Maxx Lipman played well yesterday but I think Efferding likely wins that match at 3 if it finishes. Hidalgo is a solid player more than capable of beating Ore but Diego was running on fumes at the end of his match with Rhys Johnson and I think he would have lost had the match been completed. Both 5 & 6 are toss ups so for Florida to win they'd need both of them.

    SEC Twitter actually doing a nice job today keeping scores updated and telling us who is serving. Florida served 1st at 2 and 3 dubs. aTm served 1st at 1. aTm is up breaks at 1 and 3. FLA up break at 2.

    Not a big surprise, TAMU takes the doubles point with little difficulty. Wins at 2 & 3 while up a break serving 7-6 at 1.

    Overcoming this for the Gators will take a monumental effort.

    Strong play so far from Florida up top - up a set at 1 and 2 and up 5-3 on 3.

    Ore turning it on. But Knowing Ore he can quickly turn it off, Hidalgo needs to hang in there.

    solid win for Diep at 1, but this is looking like a 1-4...maybe 2-4...match at this time.

    would think so with wins over Pieters, Ore, Adams (SC), Libeitis, Waglund, Stroppe, Kallberg and now Adams (TAM) that he has a good SOS. Really bad loss to Arkansas is the only resume flaw, maybe also the early #6 loss to UCLA.

    Anyways, congrats to Texas A&M. Strong team and deserving of it this year.

    32 players get on a team of some type. 32 out of about 78 regular SEC singles players. 41%. That's a pretty high % if players getting honored

    I tend to agree it is too many. I prefer an awards system that recognizes the top player/dubs team at each flight/line and have the top 8-10 overall talented players get All Conference.

    Rumors are that Goffi is out as coach of the Gamecocks if they do not win the NCAA 1st round.

    Makes zero sense. 4th year and has them top 30. You think SC should be top 10 or something?
