    Jan. 14, 2012

    LAS VEGAS, NEV. - USC freshman Zoe Scandalis goes up against the top seed in the singles draw tomorrow at the Freeman Memorial in Las Vegas, and USC's Kaitlyn Christian and Sabrina Santamaria will play in the doubles semis after a solid day by the Women of Troy.

    Scandalis - the No. 5 seed in the singles draw - topped Lucia Batta of host UNLV in the quarterfinals before upsetting No. 2 seeded Bruin Robin Anderson in the semifinal this afternoon. No. 4 seeded Santamaria got a quarterfinal win over No. 6 seeded Hanna Mar of Duke to start the day, but fell to top-seeded Mallory Burdette of Stanford in a tough semifinal draw. Scandalis had a busy day with doubles play also on the agenda with Christian, and the No. 2 seeded Trojan pair delivered a quarterfinal win over a No. 3 seeded Anderson/Morton of UCLA to punch a ticket to tomorrow's doubles semifinals.
