It’ll be an SEC versus Big 12 kind of day on Friday after a pair of schools from those two conferences advanced to the NCAA Semifinals. By far and away the thriller of the day was the showdown between defending national champion No. 4 Texas and Pac-12 Tournament Champion No. 12 USC. Going into Thursday’s matches, Texas was the only team that had managed to come back after dropping the doubles point but the Horns knew they didn’t want to attempt that feat again against a deep USC’s singles lineup. USC got off to a good start in doubles and went up early breaks on 1 and 2 while the match at 3 stayed on serve. USC’s Bradley Frye and...
The craziness of the last few days finally culminated on Thursday with the inevitable announcement from the NCAA confirming what we all knew was coming – the 2020 spring season and subsequent NCAA Championships were officially cancelled. The coronavirus, which has been sweeping the planet over the last several months, finally started to ramp up in the United States and after the number of cases spiked up conferences and schools started to pull the plug on fans attending events and then ultimately calling everything off. Was the quick decision to cancel the season too rash? Only time will tell but it was a move that the NCAA and each school/conference...
USC may have been the top ranked team in the country headed into the 2020 ITA Men’s National Team Indoor Championships in Madison, Wisconsin, but most thought the winner would come from the top half of a draw which was loaded full of stalwarts such as Ohio State, North Carolina, and Texas. However when the ice had thawed in chilly Madison it was the No. 2 seeded Trojans that were hoisting the hardware after claiming their first indoor title since 2012, fourth overall, with an authoritative 4-1 win over the No. 4 seed North Carolina. Just one day earlier USC was on the ropes and getting a standing ten count after dropping the doubles point and five first...

I just dusted off my live scoring page and added links for this weekend’s ITA Kickoff matches – I still have more to add for Saturday/Sunday but they should all be there for today’s matches. Unfortunately I don’t see myself being able to do any kind of match recaps because I won’t have that kind of time but I figured the scoring links/schedule were better than nothing.
History was made on Saturday with Paul Jubb becoming the first South Carolina man to win the NCAA Singles Championship after the junior from Hull, England, halted the 31-match winning streak of Mississippi State senior Nuno Borges. Jubb, who also became the first British man to win the NCAA Singles Championship, took the early advantage after breaking Borges’s opening service game but Borges broke back and held for 2-1. Jubb would regain the lead with a break on the deciding point for 4-3 and then after holding on the deciding point he’d break one more time to take the opening set 6-3. Jubb went ahead 2-0 in the second set but Borges...
