GULF SHORES, Ala. – The third-seeded and No. 3-ranked USC beach volleyball team (31-5) racked up a 3-2 win over second-seeded No. 2-ranked TCU (37-3) in the NCAA Championship semifinals at Gulf Beach Place on Saturday, May 6. The win propels the Women of Troy into their fourth straight championship dual, sixth all-time.
