  1. I think another match to add to the list is Stanford v. Saint Mary's on 8/24 at 8pm PT in Hawaii. Saint Mary's got a couple of top transfers and they are also returning a good chunk of their roster. In my opinion, they should have made the NCAA tournament last year. Looking forward to the season!
