As crazy as it may sound, any one of the four teams could come out of this region. Stanford is certainly the favorite but it would not be a complete shock to see an upset Saturday or Sunday. The Cardinal lose Tom Fawcett but bring in highly touted Alex Rotsaert who will fill the 2 spot with Geller moving up to 1. Their matchup against UCF is interesting though as UCF has to be one of the best 4 seeds of the weekend. The big question for UCF is will they have the full lineup. The Knights took a bad loss at Arkansas last week and were without #1 Gabriel Decamps (Arkansas was also without Oscar Mesquida). If the Knights have a full complement they have an excellent lineup from 1-6 and could put up a good fight. I don't think Stanford will lose at 1 or 2 so if UCF doesn't take the dubs point it could end quick but I think UCF will find a few points.
The second match of the day gives us Minnesota and Oregon, both very good teams. Minnesota is coming off their great run in the NCAA Tournament last year but lose their top player in Felix Corwin. Oregon boasts one of the nations best players in Thomas Laurent but the bottom of the Ducks lineup is suspect. Fortunately for the Ducks the Minnesota lineup is equally suspect at the bottom so I'm going to take the Ducks but if Minnesota manages to get the dubs point it could easily go the other way.
That brings us to a Pac-12 preview in the final with Stanford and Oregon. These two met in last years ITA kickoff with the Cardinal blanking the Ducks 4-0 and then again in the regular season for a 4-1 Stanford win. I don't see the result changing here as the bottom of the Oregon lineup just won't be able to contribute but the Ducks could easily grab a couple points, most likely in dubs and at 1.
Predictions:Oregon 4, Minnesota 3
