Men's and women's No. 1s remain the same

  Virginia's men held on to the No. 1 spot atop the ITA poll.

TEMPE, Ariz. – For the third consecutive week, the University of Virginia men and University of Florida women sit atop the Top 25, as Oracle and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced the latest Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Division I National Team Rankings on Wednesday.

While the women’s Top 10 (and Top 20) remained unchanged, the men’s side did see a bit of fluctuation thanks to some upsets from the weekend. Northwestern vaulted into the Top 10, moving up three positions from No. 13, buoyed by its 4-2 win over then-No. 7 TCU. The Horned Frogs fell to No. 12 this week. The other change saw Texas slide from No. 4 to No. 9, with Cal (No. 4), Georgia (No. 5) and UCLA (No. 6) each moving up one spot, respectively, and North Carolina (No. 7) and USC (No. 8) gaining two spots in this week’s poll.

New to the Top 25 on the men’s side this week is SMU, who check in at No. 23. The Mustangs defeated then-No. 19 (No. 25 this week) Arkansas 4-3 on Jan. 20, with head coach Carl Neufeld earning his 400th career win at SMU in the process.

Northwestern jumped into the women’s Top 25 this week, checking in at No. 25.

A reminder that 2017 saw a shift in the national team rankings, with the system converting to a Top 25 poll as selected by a panel of 14 coaches for both men and women that comprise the national rankings committees. When the rankings move to the computerized format in late-February, the Top 50 teams will be publicized.
