Selections announced for DI championship

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division I Men’s Tennis Subcommittee has selected the 64 teams and 16 first- and second-round sites for the 2015 NCAA Division I Men’s Tennis Championship. Per NCAA policy, the top 16 seeds are guaranteed to host if a bid was submitted and criteria are met, and matchups between conference opponents were avoided in the first two rounds of the championship.

First- and second-round competition takes place May 8-9 and features four teams playing in a single-elimination format. The winner of each site advances to the Hurd Tennis Center in Waco, Texas, where the 16 teams will compete for the national championship May 14-19. The event will be hosted by Baylor University.

“This bracket culminates a season of hard work by all student-athletes, and has created some excellent pairings in the early rounds of the championship,” said Tad Berkowitz, the head men’s tennis coach at the University of Arizona and the chair of the Division I men’s and women’s committee. “It will be exciting to watch as teams advance to the final site in Waco.”

Tournament matches will be regulation dual matches with three (3) eight-game, pro-set doubles played for one team point, followed by six (6) singles matches, each valued at one team point, played in best-of-three sets. Regular scoring will be used and a 12-point tiebreaker will be played at seven-games-all in doubles and at six-games-all in singles.

The complete list of teams and sites are included on the official bracket.
