Re: On bubble to host regional

Hosting Implications

#14 Tennessee upsets #13 Georgia 4-2


Regional Hosts

13. Georgia

- Georgia is a lock to host an NCAA regional with their win over #18 South Carolina. The 1st scenario of my most likely to host secures their regional.

14. Tennessee

- Tennessee is a lock to host an NCAA regional with their wins over #18 South Carolina and #13 Georgia. The 2nd scenario of my most likely to host secures their regional.


Eliminated

19. South Florida

- South Florida is eliminated from hosting a regional with their lost to Notre Dame.


So #15 Florida St., #16 USC, #18 South Carolina, #17 Mississippi and #25 Georgia Tech are fighting to host the last 2 regionals.

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

Big assumption to make about Georgia & Tennessee as locks to host. Remember that they still have to play in the SEC tournament and a loss in the quarters might be enough to do either of them in. They are the 3 and 4 seeds in the SEC tournament, so they will have tough 4-5 and 3-6 matches and it is conceivable that a couple of teams like Ole Miss or even Vanderbilt could make strong runs through the tournament and take away top-16 spots.

Also you're probably right about South Florida being out of hosting but it is by no means a lock. At this point it is really too far out to rule anyone out, assuming a team plays in a strong conference, has a conference tournament, and still has a chance for some good wins. The loss against ND isn't going to hurt USF that much and maybe a win against DePaul in the Big East tournament combined with some bad losses by teams ahead of them in their respective tournaments gets them in. Also, though it is unlikely, a win against ND in the conference tournament would likely get them into the top 16...which as we have seen in the last few years doesn't guarantee that you're going to host anyway!

Probably right about most of your predictions, though I wouldn't call most of them "locks" just yet. I think a "lock" is a team that, even were they to lose the rest of their matches, would still be where you project them to be. With so much tennis left to play, I just don't think that you can call anyone a lock for anything at this point. Even if a team is in a conference with no conference tournament, they are still at the mercy of what the teams above them and below them do. A team ranked 42 today and static this week could have the bad luck of having the 43-49 teams do well in their tournaments and could find themselves out of the NCAA tournament.

Re: NCAA Tournament

At-large Implications

#53 Wake Forest def. #41 North Carolina St. 4-2


#74 LSU upsets #64 Alabama 4-2

- LSU's ranking increase helps Rice and San Diego. USD's ranking helps UCI & SDSU which in turn will pull up Long Beach St.

- Alabama's loss doesn't help Oklahoma.

Re: On bubble to host regional

Hosting Implications

#14 Florida St. upsets #10 Duke 4-2

#20 Georgia Tech upsets #11 Miami 4-3

#16 South Carolina upsets #15 Georgia 4-1

#13 Tennessee def. #29 Vanderbilt 4-2

#17 Mississippi def. #25 Arkansas 4-2

- How did Mississippi become the SEC #2 seed and Georgia became the #4 seed? The standings on the ITA website must have been wrong. Georgia was ranked #13 and a lock to host a regional until they ended the season with 3 straight losses including getting upset back to back which probably just eliminated Georgia from becoming a regional host.


Regional Hosts

14. Florida State

- Florida St. is a lock to host an NCAA regional with their win over #10 Duke.


Eliminated

18. USC

- USC is eliminated from hosting a regional with the upsets by Florida St. and South Carolina.

Well, Mississppi, Georgia and Tennessee all finished 8-3 so I take it they just took the result of the mini-league between the three.

Sorry, trying to get up to 100 posts, so I'm going to say any old rubbish. Wish I could put that in my sig, but I don't seem to have one. Maybe when I get to 100 posts.
