If the team would have played like it is starting out today, they might have beaten Pepperdine. That's a sign of a young team in a rebuilding year, which the Broncos clearly are. Great moments, then bad moments, but mostly inconsistency.
UCLA won the doubles point, but a huge struggle for the #6 team in the nation. Sears & Hume lost 8-6 at #1 doubles, Sereke and Mullen won 8-5 at #2 and Pogostkin and Sheldon lost 8-6. Can't get much closer than that without winning.
