The ITA National Women's Team Indoor Championship gets underway on Friday morning in chilly Madison, Wisconsin. Florida, which is the No. 8 seed, is the defending champion but the Gators will have an uphill climb after dropping its last two to Florida State and Oklahoma State. North Carolina will attempt to make it to the finals for the fourth year in a row while the top seed Vanderbilt will look to win its first NTI Championship. 

All matches will be held on campus at Wisconsin with live streaming available via PlaySight for the matches on courts 1 through 6 (Duke/SC, UCLA/TT, GT/Mich, Florida/Wisconsin). There will be live scoring available for all matches at this link

Below are the projected singles lineups for each match along with how each team qualified. 11 of the 16 teams are undefeated with Texas (Illinois), South Carolina (UCF), Michigan (Duke), Auburn (Princeton), and Florida (Florida State & Oklahoma State) the only ones with blemishes.

    Pepperdine playing without Stefani and still getting 2nd makes them the favorite for the NCAAs. If they play her at 2 or 3, they are especially powerful. As it stands now only Pepperdine, UNC and Vandy have a chance to win. The men's is much more wide open.
