Cal rises, Stanford falls in women's top 10

   Northern California still has two of the top-10 women's collegiate teams in the nation -- barely.
   Cal (7-2) rose one spot to No. 7 and dropped rival Stanford (7-2) three places to No. 10 with a 4-3 victory over the Cardinal on Sunday at Stanford. It was the Cardinal's first home loss of the season and only its sixth since 1999.
   The Intercollege Tennis Association released the latest women's and men's team rankings today. The next team, singles and doubles rankings will be updated on March 10.
   The Saint Mary's women (5-5) jumped 13 spots to No. 51 after crushing unranked Sacramento State 7-0 in Moraga. Joining the rankings were Fresno State (8-3) at No. 62, USF (5-3) at No. 72 and San Jose State (6-4) at No. 75. North Carolina (13-0) remained No. 1.
   On the men's side, idle Cal (9-3) fell from No. 18 to No. 22, and Stanford (6-4) slipped one notch to No. 38. Previously unranked USF (5-3) soared to No. 50 after beating No. 45 New Mexico to win the UOP Invitational in Stockton. UC Davis (9-3) fell six spots to No. 70.
   Oklahoma (12-1) returned to No. 1 after a one-week hiatus, replacing defending national champion USC (10-2). The Trojans tumbled to sixth after losing to 51st-ranked Tulsa 4-3 in Los Angeles.
