Results from French Wild Card Tournament; Jenkins, Uriguen to Virginia

I'm getting ready for the NCAA Division 1 Selection Show in less than 30 minutes, and I'll have a post about that later this evening, but I wanted to pass along the results of today's French Open wild card tournament in Boca. Isner beat Pasha 2 & 0. Jenkins beat McClune 3-6, 6-0, 6-0. Young beat Williams 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 and Levine beat King 6-1, 3-6, 6-2.

The men's draw can be found here. The women's draw is here. (Sorry it's so small, but I couldn't find a link.) The first three matches of the women's tournament are Wednesday.

For those of you who missed the comment earlier today, the University of Virginia announced that Jarmere Jenkins, Julien Uriguen and Dino Dell’Orto had signed with Cavaliers. The press release can be found here.

Ole Miss is the #2 team in the country yet they have to travel to LSU and be the #2 seed in a regional hosted by a team ranked #28. Someone please explain the logic of this to me. What an absolute freaking joke. This just confirms that the NCAA is really run by a bunch of complete morons.

Pretty sad when a 10-11 team gets to host. LSU is capable of pulling off the upset of Ole Miss as well. Why even bother seeding teams if you're gonna send the #2 team on the road? Same for Baylor, the #6 seed. 2 other Texas schools, seeded lower, are hosting, yet Baylor is not? How is that fair at all? Oh, right, it's not.

I mean, I look at Florida hosting. They deserve to host, but you're flying in Columbia and Marist, from New York, down to Florida but you can't make it so Ole Miss and Baylor can rightfully host?

Fresno State on the women's side gets the unfair treatment. Illinois is hosting, which I don't understand at all. The NCAA is flying Long Island and Texas to Cal, but they can't allow Fresno State to host? Army and Princeton are flying to Miami. There's just no consistency. And I can't tell you how much I hate all the potential conference matchups in the 2nd round. This is not a national tournament. Could you imagine if this happened in basketball?
