Is Pac XII (Women's) Basketball Back? bell Points Member Joined: Sep 20, 2017 Messages: 244 Likes Received: 133 Mar 27, 2019 #1 I couldn't help but be excited about how well the conference's women's teams are doing. Five of them - Oregon, Oregon St, Arizona St, Stanford and UCLA are all in the final 16. Does any conference have more? I hope this will be maintained and may be upped over the next several years. Unfortunately, the USC team is in terrible shape and has been so for many years even after several coaching changes, some of whom looked like the right choices. Not too many here can recall that USC was once the top dog in women's soccer with the program winning two NCAAs in a row under Linda Sharp and Cheryl Miller (one of the best women players of all time), the McGee twins, Cynthia Cooper et al. I'm not necessarily one of those seeking to blame all things on Swann but I couldn't understand why he brought Mark Trakh back for a second stint after he failed in the first. Nothing personal, but I didn't see what he did after he left SC to justify bringing him back. I was waiting for him to prove me wrong but he didn't. His second stint seems worse than the first. I can't understand why he's not on the hot seat.
