I will say that they have improved every year since the new coach came in and I have enjoyed watching them play over the past couple of years. Although I only catch about 2 maybe 3 matches a year.
I don't know if they will make the NCAA tournament though. If they can beat USD, then for sure I think. If they lose to USD, then they would have to win every other match, and have a good run at the WCC tournament. Pepperdine is the runaway favorite to win the WCC though, so SCU has to have a great finish to the regular season.
