It goes without saying that the team with the higher top-8 average does not always win. The top-8 players may not play in a match, and even if they do, the specific match-ups on the court with the line-ups used and how players do on that given day will determine who wins and loses. But comparing the teams using the top-8 average is fun, so here goes.
Flight 1Midwest over Hawaii
Southern over Middle States
Florida over Hawaii
Flight 2Missouri Valley over Caribbean
Mid-Atlantic over New England
Flight 3Intermountain over Northern
Eastern over Southwest
Flight 4Texas narrowly over Pacific Northwest
Northern California over Southern California.
But don't be surprised if there isn't an upset or two. I'll check back in to report as the weekend goes along.
