The lineups for the Division I NCAA tournament have been released, and although I had feared otherwise, they are available to the public. Women's lineups are here, men's are here. A few interesting notes (and please chime in if you see some I've missed).
- Arkansas, Florida State, Miami and Stony Brook have only 6 players
- Nina Secergebovic is at No. 1 for Baylor; Diana Nakic, a 9-16 seed, played 1 in the Big 12 tournament.
- Allie Will is back at No. 1 for Florida; Lauren Embree, who was 10-0 at 1, is at 2.
- Lauren Herring, who was injured and didn't play at the SEC tournament, is at 4 for Georgia, a position she didn't play all year. She was 13-3 at 2 and 3-0 at 3.
- Kristie Ahn is in at No. 4 for Stanford. Ahn has played only three singles matches all year and none since the March 2 match with Cal.
- Lina Padegimaite has moved into the No. 3 line for Texas
- Alex Leatu, who played for Vanderbilt through March, is no longer on their roster.
- Alcorn State is the only team with just six players.
- Ben McLachlan has moved to No. 1 spot at Cal; he's only played one match there this year, he mostly played at 2 and 3.
- George Coupland, who played most of his matches at 5 for Mississippi St. is at 4. Louis Cant moves down to 5, even though he was 13-2 at 4.
- Hunter Callahan is listed as No. 6 for Ohio State, although he has only played 9 matches, and all but one of those against unranked teams.
- David Holiner has played every line for Texas this year.
- Clay Thompson is playing No. 1 for UCLA, with Nick Meister 2.
A couple of other NCAA notes. First, the good news. The final ITA rankings will be published on Tuesday. From what I understand, the NCAA request pertained only to last week, it was not intended to be permanent.
Secondly, the feeds from the University of Georgia courts will be the same feeds as throughout the year (on all 12 courts) up until the team and then the individual finals. The Turner/NCAA crews will be doing the team finals and the singles and doubles finals, providing commentary and regular TV production values for the live streaming on ncaa.com. I thought the release sounded too good to be true, and it was.
Finally, the USTA's College Spotlight is back, with the University of Washington's Kyle McMorrow featured. McMorrow has been selected for the individual tournament, and his team will play North Carolina State at the Pepperdine regional on Friday.
