Boss-Ross in finals at St. Petersburg

by FatSpike at 12:19 PM

With May-Walsh in Cincinnati this weekend, Boss-Ross have worked their way to a final against Brazil's Larissa-Juliana.

By Olympic points:

  • Larissa-Juliana officially ranked #2
  • Boss-Ross unofficially ranked #25

Looking at average points, though:

  • Larissa-Juliana #2 (463.6)
  • Boss-Ross #5 (410.0)
The Boss-Ross score is skewed by their big upset earlier in the season, but we know they're capable of digging deep.

Predictions:

Brazil takes it in three games.

The Americans can hammer the ball, but they're bigger and slower than the Brazilians. If Boss-Ross are on their serving game, the matches will be close. But Larissa-Juliana are second only to May-Walsh in athleticism. They can scoop and shoot with the best of them.
