sorry, couldn't create a new thread for this earlier.
Here's the NCAA release
agree with most of the comments at the bottom of the previous thread., particularly Lewis over Pepperdine. But the Waves didn't play any matches outside of the MPSF and that likely hurt them.
The seedings were very interesting. Loyola has held steady at No. 1. But you do see an agenda here.
IMHO this was for regional attendance purposes. which is really sad.
Over-under on time of Stanford-Erskine match? 45 minutes? Some of it will depend on how Shaw is following his injury against BYU.
MPSF Champion BYU (21-8) received the NCAA two seed, advancing to Thursday's semifinal against the 3-6 Tuesday play-in winner between Stanford (22-8, MPSF at-large) and Erskine (21-6, Coastal Carolinas Automatic) at 6 p.m. CT. MIVA Champion Loyola Chicago, who will host the national championships, received the No. 1 seed after going 27-1 this season. Loyola will play the winner of fourth seed Lewis (23-7) and fifth seed Penn State (24-6) at 8 pm CT. The semifinal matches will be streamed on NCAA.com, with ESPNU broadcasting the championship match Saturday at 7 p.m. CT.
Stanford seeks a third national title (1997, 2010), while BYU is going for its fourth (1999, 2001, 2004).
