TennisForum Racket Bracket - 2010 NCAA Team Championships -FINAL- Congrats CTSEMT!!!!

Racket Bracket |2010|NCAA Championships









Playing Racket Bracket is simple and only takes a few minutes. Here is what you need to know:

This game is based off of F-I-T-D , or Fill-In-The-Draw.

1) Just post a full predicted draw for the tournament, including all winners in all matches of all rounds.

2) No commitments are necessary for the tournaments; simply post your picks in the thread!

3) You must post your full prediction must be posted before the first ball of the match is struck. Any draws posted after this time will not be counted.

4) Please post your picks in the form "A def. B", "A d. B" or "A over B", and not "A loses to B". Writing down the winner's name only is allowed, but it might make things confusing for us and you may lose points as a result, so please try to post as specified.

Please post players' full names, not nicknames.


6) When changing your picks, you must post in a new post, quoting the previous picks. NO EDITING UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! (any edited post will not be counted, no exceptions!)

7) Please keep your picks as your own and DO NOT copy and paste other poster's picks. If you do this this will be taken as cheating and your picks will not be counted.



Feel free to ask questions! Good luck and have fun!

Re: TennisForum Racket Bracket - 2010 NCAA Championships

Contenders



1. Baylor
Record: 27-2
Highlights: Big 12 Championship, Number 1 Rank
Why?: With only 2 losses of the season, Baylor has a solid line-up. They have only lost to North Carolina 2-4 at the National Indoors and an away match against Michigan 3-4. They have only 1 National Championship, a 2005 singles winner in Zuzana Zemenova. They usually go deep but falter at the end. Can they finally finish at the end???

2. University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill
Record: 26-4
Highlights: ACC Runner-Up, ITA Indoor Runner-Up, Number 1 Rank
Why?: The Tar Heels have gelled extremely well and have a great line-up led by Seniors Katerina Tsang and Sanaz Marand. The breifly held the number 1 ranking earlier in the year and with all 4 of their losses coming at 3-4, they show that they don't go easy. They also have 1 National Championship, a doubles win when Sara Anundsen and Jenna Long won in 2007. I have personally seen them play and they have the tools to win, but other teams stand in their way.

3. University of Florida
Record: 24-2
Highlights: SEC Winners
Why?: The hottest team in the country right now, who haven't lost a match since February. Led my freshmen Lauren Embree and Allie Will, they are a force to be reckoned with. They are on a 17-match winning streak. The have 12 National Championships, 4 in each team, singles and doubles. They got the Triple Crown (all events won) in 1995. They have what it takes, but will they flame out?

8. Stanford University
Record: 20-1
Highlights: Pac 10 Winners
Why?: The Cardinals are in NCAA history with their tennis program. They currently ride on a 13-match winning streak and at home, have won a record 161 consecutive matches (131 in the regular season). Their win count is "low" only because they decided against playing at the ITA Indoors. They have a total of 32 National Championships, 15 in team, 12 in singles and 5 in doubles. They also won the Triple Crown in 1990. They have a solid line-up and with their only loss a 1-6 match to UCLA, the Cards can do some damage.

Darkhorses:
- Defending Champions Duke
- Home team UGA
- Georgia Tech
- Michigan
- Northwestern
- California
- UCLA


It will be a great Championship, for sure!

Could you also explain, perhaps in the first post, how the points are awarded. I think that is important in terms of whether there is more emphasis on the final four, winner etc.
