Women of Troy impress at Pac-12 championships

first_imgEntering the weekend as the No. 1 seed and boasting an undefeated record, the USC women’s tennis team expected nothing but success at the Pac-12 tournament in Ojai, Calif., this past weekend.Hardware · Junior Kaitlyn Christian (above) teamed with sophomore Sabrina Santamaria to defend their Pac-12 doubles championship title. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanAnd backed by strong performances from its top players, the team came away with more hardware to add to its already impressive collection, as the doubles tandem comprising junior Kaitlyn Christian and sophomore Sabrina Santamaria won the doubles championship mere hours after Christian took home the invitational singles title.The top-seeded duo of Christian and Santamaria has not lost a doubles match all season and continued that streak during this tournament, winning all four of their matches en route to a second-straight doubles title.The final pitted the Women of Troy against a feisty UCLA tandem of Courtney Dolehide and Pamela Montez, but the Christian and Santamaria team won with ease in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3. The final match also served as their 30th straight doubles victory, certainly an impressive feat.The pair has had a remarkable run of success in all sorts of tournament play, as this becomes their fourth tournament win. The duo has won the Pac-12 championship and the ITA National Indoor Championships twice each.USC head coach Richard Gallien was understandably pleased with the efforts of his top doubles team.“Credit Sabrina and Kaitlyn for adding another championship to their season,” Gallien said. “Sabrina was a star in the doubles final. She was hitting some amazing shots.”That victory came only a few hours after Christian clinched the invitational singles title with a three-set victory over No. 2 seed Ellen Tsay of Stanford. Whereas the doubles portion of the tournament comprised of only 16 duos, the invitational singles champion comes from a pool of 64 players.Christian earned a bye in the first round, but she still had to win five consecutive matches in order to clinch the title and was given only a brief rest before doubles play began.A number of other USC players competed over the course of the weekend as a way to get more playing time in before the NCAA tournament.In the pool of 32 singles championship, sophomores Giuliana Olmos, Gabriella DeSimone and Zoë Scandalis all competed but were unable to walk away with any hardware. Olmos and DeSimone advanced to the round of 16, but their run ended there as they faced top competitors from Stanford and Cal, respectively. In the doubles tournament, Olmos and Scandalis paired up and advanced to the quarterfinals before losing to the No. 3-seed pair Lynn Chi and Anett Schutting from Cal.The tournament was not all positive for the Women of Troy, however, as DeSimone appeared to suffer an injury that could hinder her heading into the NCAA tournament.“Gabrielle DeSimone pulled her hip on Thursday,” Gallien said. “The doctors say she will be out for a week. As long as she is ready to go for the first round, we should be fine.”Moreover, there is a natural concern that non-tennis related distractions could add stress on the girls as they enter the most important leg of their season.“For us, the most important thing is keeping the girls fresh and enthusiastic, while keeping in mind that they, like the rest of the students, are in the midst of finals season,” Gallien said. “The nice thing is if we get out of the first two rounds, we will be done with all of the girls’ finals moving forward.”The Women of Troy are expected to be one of the top seeds in the NCAA tournament following a splendid regular season. The tournament will kick off May 17 in Urbana, Ill.last_img read more

Men’s hoops hits the road for one game

first_imgMatt Karatsu | Daily TrojanThrow it down · Freshman guard De’Anthony Melton is a spark off the bench for the Trojans and leads the Pac-12 in steals with 18 this year.After three home games last week, USC (6-0) tips-off against the University of San Diego Toreros (2-4) at the Jenny Craig Pavilion in San Diego on Wednesday at 7 p.m.The Trojans are off to their best start since the 2000-01 season (8-0), and their success can be attributed to their depth. Five players are averaging double digits, and freshman guard De’Anthony Melton is scoring 9.7 points per game. At times, Melton has looked like USC’s best player. Despite coming off the bench every game, he has been on the court at the end of every close contest. His crucial steal with 10 seconds to play at Texas A&M sealed the Trojan’s third victory of the young season. Three games later, Melton is the Pac-12 leader in steals with 18 on the season. Additionally, the 6-foot-4 guard is shooting a team-high 56 percent from the floor and 33 percent from three. He is also averaging 5.8 rebounds per game, third on the team, and 3.3 assists per game, second on the team.Other newcomers have stepped up too. Louisville transfer, redshirt sophomore Shaqquan Aaron is second on the team in scoring and fourth in field goal percentage. Freshman Jonah Mathews, albeit streaky at times, has shown glimpses of stellar all-around basketball. He is only shooting 27.8 percent from 3 this far, but he will certainly raise that number as he continues to adjust to the collegiate level. Nonetheless, he is third on the team in assists with 12, and he is second on the team in assists-per-40-minutes with 5.1. Like Matthews, freshman forward Nick Rakocevic is also contributing 5 points per game. He adds 3.7 rebounds per contest and leads the team in rebounds-per-40-minutes with 10.7.Head coach Andy Enfield has been able to play all 13 men on the roster this season, and he has eight in the rotation. No one plays more than captains junior guard Jordan McLaughlin (32.7 mpg) and sophomore forward Bennie Boatwright (30.0 mpg), so everyone should have fresh legs come conference play. Another good sign for the Trojans last week was that their offense came to life. The team had been shooting under 30 percent from behind the arc in their first three games, but USC shot 44 percent from downtown last week, making 37 3s. Boatwright’s return has certainly aided the Trojans. After two rough games versus Texas A&M and New Orleans, Boatwright averaged 19 points versus SMU and UCSB, making nine of 18 3s. In just their second true road game of the season, the Trojans will be targets of another trap game. The Toreros will be prepared for USC after a challenging schedule so far that included match-ups versus UCLA and Samford. The team can stretch the floor very well with three players shooting above 45 percent from 3. Senior forward Brett Bailey leads the Toreros in scoring at 17.5 points per game. In USD’s most recent game, a home loss to New Mexico State, Bailey posted 24 points, nine rebounds and a career-high seven assists. Sophomore guard Olin Carter III is second on the team in scoring at 16.0 points per game. Bailey and Carter have scored roughly 48 percent of their team’s points this season, so if USC can shut them down, they will make winning on the road a whole lot easier.Last year, USC and USD met at the Galen Center in the Trojans home opener. USC won 83-45. Now, they try to sweep the home-and-home series and go 6-0 all-time versus the Toreros and 7-0 on the season.last_img read more
