End of the regular season: top 16 team view.

Rundown to the final 16

The end of the season is becoming concentrated with important mathces. Here is my view of the important matches that can change the top 16 seeds and regional locations. For another day is the issue of the top 16 teams that don't have challenging matches in their final weeks.

April 7
North Carolina v. Duke 4 3


April 9
Baylor v. Northwestern 4 3
South Carolina v. Georgia 3 4
Notre Dame v. South Florida 7 0
Stanford v. Washington 4 3
USC v. ASU 5 2

April 10
North Carolina v. Clemson 4 3. here
Duke v. Georgia Tech. 12 pm (3 3 last match 6 6 in third set tiebreaker) current score here
UCLA v. ASU 12 pm PT (4 2, #4 still on court ) current score here
California v. Washington 12 pm PT (4 1, #1 & #2 on court in 3rd set ) current score here


April 11
Florida v. Georgia (florida 5 Georia 0, Florida rolling) live score here. 1 pm ET
Duke v. Clemson (3 3, with final match #2 in third set Clemson up 3 0). live score here. )12 pm ET
South Carolina v. Tennessee (SC 3 Tenn 4 . live score here 1 pm
Georgia Tech v. UNC 2 5 live score here

April 16

April 17
Florida v. North Carolina
Stanford v. California
FSU v. Duke 1 pm
Georgia v. Tennessee
South Carolina v. Florida

April 18

16

UF managed to jump to 15 at the end of April. So anything can happen.

Now I don't think top 8? teams need to worry about that much. But PAC-10 teams, for example..

8. UCLA, 11. STAN 12. CAL 17. USC 21. ASU 25. UW

Pretty tight.

Even those 3 top teams canNOT afford to lose a single match..which is why UW & ASU matches are so

important..I don't think that UW can upset STAN & CAL, IMHO, but who knows..

and of course CAL; STAN , USC ; UCLA would matter MOST.

I thought the top teams last year would suffer due to graduations, but actually

the ranking didn't change much.

Credit to those teams..Baylor & UF doing well was to be expected (no losses

from last year)...and ND, despite the loss of Kelcy Tefft still #6..amazing..

The biggest change is of course UNC and MICH, and to the lesser extent FSU,

at the expense of GT, USC, ARK, LSU, Fresno St..but we'll see.

A big piece of the puzzle that's been left out are the potential matches teams will play in their conference tournaments.

Locks to host regionals

I'll do an multi-part analysis.

1. Baylor
best wins = #2 UNC, #6 ND, #8 UCLA, #10 Miami, #13 FSU, #17 USC twice

2. North Carolina
#1 Baylor, #5 NW, #6 ND, #7 Duke twice

3. Michigan
#1 Baylor, #5 NW, #9 Clemson, #10 Miami

4. Florida
#2 UNC, #3 Michigan, #7 Duke, #13 FSU

5. Northwestern
#2 UNC, #4 FL, #12 Cal, #13 FSU

6. Notre Dame
#3 Michigan, #5 NW, #16 TN, #20 GT

7. Duke
#3 Michigan, #5 NW, #6 ND, #17 USC

8. UCLA
#4 FL, #10 Miami, #11 Stanford, #12 Cal

9. Clemson
#13 FSU, #14 Georgia, #15 SC, #18 Mississippi

10. Miami
#9 Clemson, #13 FSU, #14 GA, #20 GT

11. Stanford - 55.35 pts.
#8 UCLA, #12 Cal, #21 ASU, #27 Texas

12. Cal - 51.81 pts.
#8 UCLA, #17 USC twice, #20 GT, #21 ASU


So looking at their best 4 wins and their computer points the 12 teams above are LOCKS to host an NCAA regional.

Since these teams are already locks no need for me to look at their remaining schedule.

Re: End of the regular season: top 16 team view.

reah, right, ranking points..

12 51.81 California 11
13 44.77 Florida State University 17
14 40.09 University of Georgia 13
15 39.64 University of South Carolina 19
16 37.70 University of Tennessee 14
17 35.29 University of Southern California 18
18 35.28 University of Mississippi 35
19 34.59 University of South Florida 15
20 34.04 Georgia Tech 20
21 32.66 Arizona State University 16
22 32.01 Univ. of Iowa 26

it's scary

April 9

South Carolina v. Georgia
Notre Dame v. South Florida 3 pm ET

April 10

Duke v. Georgia Tech. 12 pm
UCLA v. ASU 12 pm PT

April 11
Florida v. Georgia 1 pm ET
South Carolina v. Tennessee 1 pm

April 16
UCLA v. USC 12 pm PT

April 17

FSU v. Duke 1 pm
Georgia v. Tennessee
South Carolina v. Florida

April 18

UNC v. FSU 1 pm.

For Georgia and USC, a win against Florida would be tremendous..

Hell, Tennessee schedule; remaining matches against Florida, USC, UGA..

is Pluskota injured? why is she not playing..(the same to Petukhova of FSU)

Gouci, I did a similar analysis the other day for a different reason. The top ten teams before this last ranking came out seemed odd to me so I wanted to see what teams had the most top ten wins, which is the most important in my mind going into the NCAA's. As your analysis proves here, its the top three ranked teams this week that all have won four times and now NC five after beating Duke tonight. I also looked at who had the most top 25 wins and the results were all similar.

Re: On bubble to host regional

Here is how I handicap the remaining teams and their chances to host a regional.


Most likely to host regional

1. #14 Georgia

- Needs 1 win over either #15 South Carolina, #16 Tennessee or #18 Mississippi to lock up a regional.


2. Winner of #15 South Carolina at #16 Tennessee


3. Winner of SEC Tournament #4 vs #5 seed

- Likely #18 Mississippi vs #16 Tennessee.


4. Winner of #21 Arizona St. at #17 USC


Chance to host

#13 Florida St. = Would have to upset one from either #2 UNC, #7 Duke or #9 Clemson.

#19 South Florida = Would have to upset both #6 Notre Dame and #26 DePaul.

#20 Georgia Tech = Would have to upset one from either #2 UNC, #7 Duke or #9 Clemson.


Conclusion

In my opinion SEC teams will host 3 of the last 4 regionals. The SEC teams in position to host regionals will play each other with the winner receiving enough of a rankings boost to secure hosting a regional.

The Pac 10 in my humble opinion is in position to claim the final regional.


Key Matches

Fri. 4/9 = #15 South Carolina at #14 Georgia

Fri. 4/9 = #21 Arizona St. at #17 USC

Sun. 4/11 = #15 South Carolina at #16 Tennessee

Sat. 4/17 = #16 Tennessee at #14 Georgia

Fri. 4/23 = SEC Tournament #4 vs #5 seed
.

All this is beyond my ken, of course, so I'll pick up on a side issue.

Here's the link 2nd_serve gave a day or two ago.

 Geographical location; and
 Championships operating costs.


As I read it, ranking is only one part of one of five criteria used to select the hosts.

Excellent analysis you make, but I would respond that these last days of regular season and Divisional playoffs are going to help decide seeds, and being seeded right in top 4 or 8 can be a big difference than a 9-16 etc.

Duke lost to Georgia Tech and Clemson, how much will this effect the seeding.

Re: NCAA At-larges

I added both San Diego St. and TCU as long shots for an NCAA at-large based on their remaining schedule.


Long Shots

75. San Diego St. 1-1

- Still plays #66 San Diego and possibly #36 UNLV, #42 Utah or TCU in the Mountain West Conference Tournament.

77. TCU 1-2

- Still plays #42 Utah and possibly #75 San Diego St. or #36 UNLV in the Mountain West Conference Tournament.

Re: NCAA At-larges

I went ahead and looked at the data for the teams ranked #51 to #77 just to be thorough. I added #56 Harvard as a bubble team and #59 Oklahoma State as a long shot based on their remaining schedule.

Adding #56 Harvard as a bubble team should be proof I don't just look at the current rankings and assume a team will hold their ground but I make projections based on analyzing data.


Bubble Teams

56. Harvard 2-1

- Still plays #46 Yale, #53 Dartmouth and #62 Brown.


Long Shots

59. Oklahoma State 1-2

- Still plays #43 Oklahoma and #49 Nebraska.


Eliminated

50. Wake Forest 2-1

- Wake Forest was eliminated from NCAA At-large contention with their loss to #31 Virgina on 4/11.
