The men won the conference title, their sixth in nine years so what did the women do to top them? They won the Pac 10, but did so for the sixth consecutive year. Yeah, that's what I would call domination. The Pac 10 is no walkover either as two other conference teams join the Bruins in the top 10 nationally. The Bruins clinched the conference title when Catherine Calvert found the net in the 107th minute to give the Bruins a 2-1 2OT win.

The #2 Bruins are 17-0-2 overall and 8-0 in conference play with one game remaining. If the Bruins defeat Oregon in that final game, they will complete their second consecutive undefeated conference season. The NCAA Tournament begins on Friday the 14th, with the second round on the 16th. The 3rd round will be played the following weekend with the quarterfinals on the weekend of the 28th. The Bruins are all but assured a top 4 seed and with it, the right to host their first four tournament matches. The NCAA bracket will be announced on Monday live on ESPNEWS at 5 pm PST.
Congrats to the Bruins on their amazing accomplishment. Hopefully they can break through this season and win the College Cup.
