While the official rankings are a great indicator of how a team is scoring, they don’t always tell the full story. Overscoring, injuries, upgrades and downgrades are all things scores can’t necessarily tell you, so we present our biweekly Report Card to break down each event for a variety of teams, and mark their progress as the season progresses.
As we quickly approach the halfway point of the season, I’m taking a look at a crop of nationals contenders and a Pac-12 team that hasn’t been nationally relevant since 2006. While I’m not quite ready to declare Arizona State an NCAA shoo-in yet, I’ll break down each event for five other hopefuls and nitpick at where they need to improve to have a shot at competing in Texas in April.
