A few thoughts on the women’s bracket

On the women’s side, we can expect Texas and Baylor to host. With that in mind, I think this is how it will pan out.

Austin – Texas, TCU, Rice and a random 4-seed
Waco – Baylor, Tulsa, North Texas and Oral Roberts

And shock of all shocks, A&M hosts. They could keep Ole Miss in Oxford, but this seems like a logical move.
College Station – Mississippi, Texas A&M, Stephen F Austin and Southern

I am not going to think this all out, but you can just look at California and notice there are a ton of 1 and 3 seeds. I expect Texas Tech to get shipped out there (like Nebraska). I mean they could send them to Big 10 territory, but there are plenty of schools that can drive, albeit they are all Big 10 schools.

I think Oklahoma State goes to an ACC school.

Will both FSU teams make the trip to Gainseville? Yikes. Maybe Miami gets hosed and flies north…

I am tired and I think I have done enough damage for one night.

Men’s bracket predictions – one huge dumpster fire

I am really not sure where to go with all of this. The men’s is a massive dumpster fire in the middle of the country. With only one top seed between the Mississippi River and the city of Los Angeles (Oklahoma), I am not sure what they are going to do. Not to mention there are five top seeds on the California Coast, something has got to give.

Someone has got to go to Norman. Texas, Texas Tech, Tulsa, Baylor and Texas A&M are all within 400 miles. The logical choice is Tulsa, but both Tulsa and Texas were sent there last year. Tech was sent there the year before. My guess it is either Texas A&M or Baylor. The Bears and the Sooners played a viscous 4-3 match decided at line six that went three tiebreakers, so I am guessing Texas A&M gets a farewell visit to Norman. So that regional is Oklahoma, Texas A&M, some team random 3-seed and UMKC. I know UMKC went there last year, but hey, that’s about it. They are a 4-seed. There are no drivable 3-seeds, as the closest, Memphis and Drake are over 400 miles.

I am guessing Drake gets sent to Illinois.

I think Florida gets Florida State, College of Charleston and Auburn. That’s one of the only ways to make that a completely driving pod and keep too many SEC teams in there. South Carolina State and CoC could change spots, but SCS was there last year, so it’s CoC’s turn.

Virginia can host an all-driving pod with VCU, GW or Navy and Virginia Tech or NC State. VCU went there last year, so do they fly down Harvard and send VCU to Durham or Chapel Hill? I think so.

Just like last year when Illinois and North Carolina were neck and neck in the rankings and were forced into a rematch at Illinois, I think UNC gets a team involved in the the mix with them. Tennessee has a win over Auburn, who has a win over UNC. Maybe they give the regional to Tennessee, with VCU, UNC and Virginia Tech. This could also just stay in Chapel Hill.

I think Duke gets a 2-seed like Indiana, UNC Wilmington and East Tennessee State.

Ohio State looks to have either Notre Dame or Michigan and their 2-seed. They deserve a ND or Indiana seed more than having to host Michigan, but ND was there last year. Maybe Duke gets Notre Dame and Ohio State gets Indiana. How about Northwestern and Western Michigan?

Illinois hosts Drake or Green Bay, Vandy and Michigan.

In Mississippi and Georgia, there are a lot of option, but here’s my guess. In Athens, you get South Carolina, South Carolina State and either Baylor or Texas Tech. In Oxford you get Memphis, LSU or maybe Louisville (406 miles via Google Maps) and Alcorn. In Starkville, you get Middle Tennessee State, LSU or Vandy and a random team from the north.

I think they have to fly people anyway, so maybe one of the California teams will be shipped to Austin, where USTA can drive. Normally I would say it would be Cal or Stanford, but it would not surprise me if it were Pepperdine.

Yes, crazy, but not out of the realm. Obviously, you match up the California schools the best you can, then fly everyone else out there.

OK, so I rambled forever and really didn’t give you much…. sorry

Maps of the seeds for men and women

OK, so I have created maps of the suspected seeds… some schools are on top of others and obviously I have cut Hawaii out of the women’s map. (blue-1, red-2, green-3, yellow-4)

MEN – http://texascollegetennis.com/images/NCAA_men_2012.jpg

WOMEN – http://texascollegetennis.com/images/NCAA_women_2012.jpg

I may port them to longitude and latitude and put them in a some software, but I think you get the point.

Women’s 2012 NCAA seedings… how I see it.

OK, here’s what I have… 32 at-large, 32 next highest. Puts us at last one in being #41 St. Mary’s College Of California. Here are the seedings. I have not looked to see if any teams have direct wins and should move ahead. I also want to point out that the final team, Oral Roberts, only has a few matches in the ITA database, but appears to have played a bunch more if you check the Summit League website

The entire double-run women’s ITA Rankings, as far as I can tell

OK, if they are not going to publish them, then I will go ahead and publish my own version. Again, the biggest issue is correcting the neutral matches that show up as away wins for teams. I manually corrected this for the top-51 teams in the April 24 rankings. Why 51? Not really sure myself. I thought it was enough to get us through the part where it gets dirty. The other issue is the fact you have to ‘make up’ the 76-125 file. I feel pretty good about where I am on this. So the bottom line is this… these are pretty darn close. Here you go. Of course I will follow up with more in a bit.

My look at the seeds for the men’s bracket

There are a few interesting quirks. One I see is that there is a rule saying teams with direct wins over a teamdirectly in front of them can jump them. At 16, you have UNC, who lost to 17 Auburn… but Auburn also happened to lose to 18 Tennessee… so what happens? Also, the Big 12 only has one team in the top-16. Will a team like Texas, who got hosed last year, get to host as a 2-seed?

I will plop these all into my mapping software and show you where the seeds are located in my next post.

Ever wondered what the entire ITA rankings look like? Here are the men’s final rankings

This is not going to be 100% correct, but I can assure you it is pretty darn close. I do not think I am missing any matches. I have validated the database for all matches for teams that were in the top-50 last week. The biggest challenge was how to estimate the rankings from 76-125. I won’t disclose my methods, but I think it was pretty solid. I will post a a bit about the seeding and such.

Storybook Finish Gives Horned Frogs Mountain West Crown

Simona Parajova clinched the title for TCU

SAN DIEGO – TCU’s women’s tennis captured the Mountain West Women’s Tennis Championship in dramatic fashion Sunday, a 4-2 triumph over host San Diego State at the Aztec Tennis Center.

The 32nd-ranked Horned Frogs improved to 18-5 on the year and won for the 11th-straight time this season. Third-seeded San Diego State dropped to 12-14. TCU earned the Mountain West’s automatic bid into the NCAA Tennis Championship and will learn its destination Tuesday evening.

For TCU, it marked the fourth time it has won the Mountain West tournament crown (2006, 2009, 2010). After winning the Mountain West regular season championship as well, TCU swept both titles for the second time in program history (2006).

“It was really tough today,” TCU coach Dave Borelli said. “I thought we had them beat early. San Diego State made an amazing comeback. We were able to withstand the crowd and playing on their home courts. It’s been a long season, but we’ve still got a lot to accomplish. Hopefully we can do a lot of damage at NCAAs.”

After claiming the doubles point to open the match, TCU appeared to be in complete control as it quickly ran its advantage to 3-1 and picked up first set wins on two other courts. However,SDSU was able to force third sets at Nos. 2 and 4 singles.

No. 119-ranked Simona Parajova rolled through her first set at No. 2 singles, claiming a 6-0 win. Emma Cioffi of the Aztecs refused to go quietly, though, fighting off Parajova serving for the match to take the second set, 7-5.

In the third, CIoffi broke the freshman’s serve early to take a 3-1 lead, but breaks by Parajova in Cioffi’s next two service games made it 4-3 in favor of Parajova. The match finished on serve as Parajova hit a huge serve in the championship’s final point that Cioffi returned well long. In all, the Zvolen, Slovakia, native won 6-0, 5-7, 6-4 to spark TCU’s celebration on court two.

TCU’s top two doubles tandems from the year produced the doubles point once against for the Frogs as Gaby Mastromarino and Simona Parajova were first to strike, grabbing an 8-4 triumph at No. 3 doubles. They improved to 16-1 this spring as doubles partners.

No. 49-ranked Millie Nichols and Olivia Smith clinched the doubles point with an 8-4 win of their own on the top court. After SDSU’s Roxanne Ellison and Sierra Ellison broke to make it 4-all, the TCU tandem won four-straight games to give the Frogs a 1-0 advantage.

In all likelihood, Nichols and Smith clinched a spot at the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships as the league’s top-ranked doubles tandem. Overall this season, Nichols and Smith are 19-6, including an 11-3 mark in the spring.

After doubles play, Federica Denti extended the Frog lead to 2-0 with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Sierra Ellison at No. 5 singles. The Bellano, Italy, native controlled the match the entire way andimproved to 15-5 this spring.

The Aztecs struck back to make it 2-1 with a win at No. 3 singles, but Mastromarino, TCU’s lone senior, responded to give TCU a 3-1 lead with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Kristin Buth at No. 6 singles. The Jupiter, Fla., native won her ninth match in a row.

Nichols won the first set 6-2 at court four and went to a tiebreaker that could have won the championship for the Frogs, but SDSU’s Alicia Aguilar claimed the breaker, 7-4. When Parajova clinched the title, Nichols was leading 5-2 in the final set. A win at No. 1 singles provided SDSU’s second point.

TCU returns to the NCAA Women’s Tennis Championship after missing the field of 64 a year ago. It will be the Frogs’ eighth appearance in the last nine years.

TCU wins fourth Mountain West Women’s Tennis Championship title

Texas captures Big 12 Championship, defeats Texas A&M, 4-2

Longhorns claim eighth Big 12 Championship and their first since 2005; Elizabeth Begley selected as the Big 12 Championship’s Most Outstanding Performer.

COLLEGE STATION – Cierra Gaytan-Leach punctuated a come-from-behind, three-set win with a service ace, as fourth-seeded Texas (17-7) collected the doubles point and three singles wins to seal a 4-2 win over third-seeded host Texas A&M (18-5) Sunday in the finals of the 2012 Big 12 Championship.

Texas claims its eighth Big 12 Championship – its first since 2005 – and the first for seventh-year head coach Patty Fendick-McCain, who has led the Horns to the finals of the Big 12 Championship in each of her seven seasons in Austin. Texas becomes just the second fourth-seeded team to win the Big 12 Championship. Oklahoma State was the last No. 4 seed to win the event in 2003.

Texas sophomore Elizabeth Begley was selected as the Big 12 Championship’s Most Outstanding Performer after going 3-0 in singles play without dropping a set. The Houston native completed the regular season with a 9-0 mark against conference foes and improved that mark to 12-0 with her victories this weekend over Oklahoma State’s Isabela Miro, Texas Tech’s Nikki Sanders and Texas A&M’s Sheri Olivier.

The Horns won matches at the first and second doubles matches to assume a 1-0 lead before adding wins from Begley, freshman Lina Padegimaite and the clincher from Cierra Gaytan-Leach to seal the victory, which was punctuated by a Gaytan-Leach ace on match point.

At second doubles, UT’s Krista Damico and Gaytan-Leach led off by breaking the 16-match winning streak of A&M’s Janelle Cuthbertson and Nazari Urbina. UT raced out to a 5-0 lead behind three service breaks. A&M closed within 5-2, but Texas cruised to an 8-3 win. Texas’ Begley and Aeriel Ellis held a 5-3 lead over the Aggies’ Sheri Olivier and Lauren Santacroce at third doubles, but the Aggies claimed the next three games to assume a 6-5 lead. Texas held serve to even the match at six games apiece, but A&M held and broke the Horns in the final game to take an 8-6 win.

Texas’ Padegimaite and Noel Scott broke the Aggies’ Cristina Sanchez-Quintanar and Wen Sun to take a 4-3 lead at first doubles. UT held serve and broke once more for a 6-3 lead. Both teams held serve the rest of the way, and A&M failed to put a final Scott serve in play, as UT claimed the match, 8-4 to nail down the doubles point.

Begley made short work of A&M’s Olivier at sixth singles, as she posted a 6-0, 6-1 win to push the Texas lead to 2-0. Padegimaite, who joined Begley to finish 9-0 in conference play, remained undefeated against league foes, as she notched a 6-0, 6-2 win over A&M’s Santacroce at fourth singles to extend the Longhorns’ lead to 3-0.

Texas A&M responded with a victory at first singles, where the Aggies’ eighth-ranked Sanchez-Quintanar topped UT’s Ellis, 6-0, 6-1. A&M pulled within 3-2 when the Aggies’ 81st-ranked Sun defeated UT’s Scott by a 6-1, 6-0 count at third singles.

At fifth singles, which proved to be the clinching point, Gaytan-Leach broke for a 3-2 first-set lead over the Aggies’ Cuthbertson. But, Cuthbertson held serve twice and broke Gaytan-Leach as many times to take the first set, 6-3. Gaytan-Leach broke for a 5-2 second-set lead before Cuthbertson broke Gaytan-Leach and held serve to close within 5-4. However, Gaytan-Leach held serve to close out the second set, 6-4.

POST-MATCH COMMENTS
Texas head coach Patty Fendick-McCain
On winning the Big 12 Championship
It feels pretty good. We actually thought we were going to play Baylor, but the Aggies took it to them yesterday. It was fun. We played the Aggies here a couple of weeks ago and they got us then, but we knew it was going to come down to the doubles point today. That was our emphasis today.

There is really some parity in the Big 12 at this point. We are seeing every single team battling really well and playing really good tennis. We knew we had to play just about our best tennis to get through this. About four days ago we were dragging a little bit with a few speed bumps toward the end of the regular season. I am really proud of the girls and the way they were able to right the ship.

It’s special for us. We haven’t won this before. one of our goals this season was to come and win this tournament. After the bumps in the road, it seemed almost unlikely. It’s a true tribute to their resiliency and their determination and their Texas fighting spirit.

On the leadership from senior Krista Damico
I think she played some of her best tennis today, and that is what it’s all about. It’s about bringing your “A” game when you’re playing for a title. I know she’s looking forward to the rest of the season.

On winning the Big 12 Championship with a youthful roster
In tennis, youth is sometimes misleading. Experience is completely different. We have players on our squad who have played internationally. We have some American players who have played at the highest levels internationally and have garnered quite a bit of experience. Even though they’re young in terms of collegiate eligibility, they’re very settled and confident in their abilities. When somebody beats you, you might be down, but you’re not out. They knew they could rewrite their own history today, so that was fun to watch.

On Cierra Gaytan-Leach rallying from a set down to win her match
Determination is great, but you’ve got to have some strategy. I think at the beginning, she had a pretty good strategy, and then it got away from her a little bit because she was trying so hard. I went out there after the first set and just settled her down a little bit and reminded her of the game she needed to play. Her determination was going to help her do that, but she had to be able to focus on her strategy, settle herself down and do what she had done so well all season. She kept her discipline and kept her emotions in check. “I was really happy for her. She has battled really hard all season. It is good to see her playing confidently and feeling that good about herself. It is just a wonderful thing.

Texas senior Krista Damico
On winning the Big 12 Championship
It’s everything we’ve worked for this season. We definitely had some rough matches on the way here, but we came out here swinging today. We had a lot to prove. It has been a long time coming to win this Big 12 Championship. We’ve worked so hard for it. We lost to A&M during the season, and that was tough. We took that one hard. We felt like we had a lot to prove.

On the challenge of winning the Big 12 Championship
I can honestly say that out of the past four years I’ve been here, this is by far the highest standard of tennis we’ve seen in the Big 12. The competition day in and day out is so tough. It has helped our team get better.

On Cierra Gaytan-Leach clinching the match
I had just lost a really tight 4-all game, and I was upset about that. I knew the longer I stayed out there and kept fighting that hopefully I could just push her (Cierra) through it. I knew she had it in her when I heard she had won. I knew I had to shake my opponent’s hand, but all I wanted to do was just run to Cierra and go hug her. She’s only a sophomore, and she did so well. It’s a lot of pressure for her. It’s just amazing.

Texas sophomore Elizabeth Begley (Big 12 Championship’s Most Outstanding Performer)
On going undefeated against conference opponents (12-0) this season
It was really great, just awesome. I wanted to win quickly today, and I was able to support my team and help them win the Big 12 Championship. It feels great. I did it for my team. That was the most important thing I could have done, to do something important for my team this year. I really owe it to my team for helping me through this year. I set my goal early to win every conference match – every one. I didn’t want to lose to one person. That was my goal from the very beginning. I put my mind to it and I made sure that I got it done for my team.

On winning the Big 12 Championship
It feels so good. I wanted to soak up every minute of it. But, now we need to get back to work and get ready for the national championship.

Texas sophomore Cierra Gaytan-Leach
On clinching the Big 12 Championship with a service ace
It felt amazing. I couldn’t be happier. I felt amazing out there in the last two sets, and that was the way I wanted to end it, with an ace.

On rallying to win the final two sets of her match
I’m a very aggressive player. I wanted to hit the ball and use some angles and come into the net. When I did that, it worked. I wanted to serve really big and look for the short ball.

Howard Joffe, Texas A&M Head Coach
“Truthfully our kids conducted themselves like champions, but unfortunately on the scoreboard we are not champions today. I am delighted with them. They did a great job.”

(On doubles point) “I actually don’t think we did a bad job at all in the doubles. You have to give Texas some credit they played not just well, but with a ton of passion and energy. They really took it to us. In the context of the match it was huge for them.”
“I have to give them credit as well in the singles. They also played with a lot of spunk and passion.”

“If I have to sort of analyze it most honestly and unemotionally, Texas probably does have the best team. They are very, very deserving to be the champion. Ours is a team that unfortunately has lacked some depth. In our two matches against Baylor and Texas in the last two days we have not gotten beaten at No. 1, 2 or 3. There is no question that we have a very strong top of the lineup and there is no question that Texas has the best team.”
