If matches were required to finish and kids were playing hurt and the 4th point was had, I could see them tanking or their coach telling them to default.
I can understand not finishing when a match is far from an end but there have been a few SEC matches recently that end at like 1-5 and 5-6. It should not become a regular thing as it appears it is becoming in the SEC. A player is at risk of a freak ankle crack at anytime. He could just as easily get injured in a first set than 3rd.
