The USC campus will be littered with Trojans this weekend celebrating the end of another successful school year.  While you are here, stop by Marks Stadium as men's and women's tennis begin NCAA Tournament action as the hosts of the first and second rounds.

No. 1 USC men's tennis begins its quest for a four-peat against the same opponent as the women, Fairfield, at Noon Saturday after South Carolina and Texas A&M.  The winners will meet on Sunday at Noon.

As far as the brackets go, the men's team's toughest foe is expected to be Duke in a possible regional final.  The Trojans swept the Blue Devils at a neutral site match in February.

The women have a bit of a tougher road to the Final Four.  The Stanford Cardinal, which beat USC 4-2 in Palo Alto last month, are looming in the Elite Eight.
