The Big Storyline: Maya Bordas won two events and the all-around to finish off her home career in leading California to an easy win over visiting Iowa. The Golden Bears notched a new season best and had a second senior, Milan Clausi, also take home a pair of event titles. The Hawkeyes were led by Lauren Guerin, who debuted a new floor routine to tie for a share of the event win.
Implications: After three consecutive losses, the Golden Bears picked up a regular season finale win and posted a score to help it jockey in NQS seeding. Injured California gymnast Kyana George also performed an exhibition floor routine and could provide more options in the postseason.
Records: California posted a 49.600 on floor to set a new program record on the event.

Why You Should Make Time to Tune in: This exciting top 20 matchup pits Big Ten foe Iowa against Pac-12 co-champion California. The Hawkeyes are coming off a season high total on the road against their rival and should push the Golden Bears, who have suffered two upset losses in as many meets.
Need More Proof? California will be in its second meet of the weekend, so we may see some depth on display to give its stalwarts some rest before conference championships. Look for possible depth routines like Gabby Perea on floor, Maya Green on bars and Abi Solari on vault. The Hawkeyes will need to maximize their potential on floor for an upset, with Lauren Guerin and Jerquavia Henderson always threatening for a perfect score.
