NCAA | USC wins, Cal loses, second day of Tournament begins

There were ten first-round matches Thursday, five involving seeded teams. Three won handily: (3) Texas, (4) Nebraska and (6) USC. In one set, Texas beat Colgate 25-4; in another, USC beat Fairfield 25-8.

(6) Louisville—whom many think are overrated—struggled to beat tiny Belmont, 3-1. (15) Iowa State of the Big 12 had to go five to beat Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPW).

Another Big-12 team wasn’t as fortunate, as Kansas State was crushed by Northern Iowa.

The Cal Bears ended a truly disappointing season by losing to North Carolina, 1-3. Cal lost each of the first two sets in heartbreak fashion, and couldn’t recover.

Michigan won the first two sets against Tennessee, but had to hold on to beat the Volunteers in five.

The most exciting match of the night, however, found St. Mary’s of the West Coast Conference trailing San Diego State 0-2. The Gaels powered back, however, winning the final three 25-23, 25-22 and 15-12. As a reward, they now face USC.


On tap today: 22 more first-round matches—including four in Seattle—and 5 second-round matches—including Northern Iowa @ Nebraska, to determine the team that will face the winner of the Seattle quadrant next week in Omaha.
