UVa will face top-seed USC in the Final Four Monday at five o'clock.

The Cavaliers and Trojans are meeting in the tournament for the 6th time in the last eight seasons.

USC ended Virginia's season in the tournament every year from 2009 to 2012; including victories in the finals in '11 and '12.

The 'Hoos played in the quarterfinals for the tenth year in a row Sunday, which is the longest active streak in the nation.

Virginia (27-2) won the doubles point against the Bears, and earned singles victories from Justin Shane, Ryan Shane, and Alex Domijan.
