SEC Weekend Preview 3/30 - 4/1

Texas A&M and Mississippi State remain atop the men's conference standings with 6-0 records after each posted a pair of wins last weekend. Both teams will get serious tests this weekend as they both face a couple of top 25 teams on the road. A&M will visit Vanderbilt and Kentucky while Mississippi State will visit Georgia and Tennessee. While those are the marquee conference matchups there is one huge non-conference matchup this week when Florida visits #1 Wake Forest. The Deacs lost their first match of the year Sunday to Florida State but rebounded Wednesday to take down #5 North Carolina and will be ready for the Gators. Full match previews with depth charts can be found below.

Friday March 30

#47 Alabama at #40 Ole Miss

Both teams are struggling right now but Ole Miss is in worse shape if Hansson and Fallert are still out. Both teams have only one conference win so far and the loser will find themselves squarely in contention for the 12/13 spots in the conference and the unenviable position of having to play in “play-in” game between the 12th and 13th place teams in the SEC Tournament.

#84 Auburn at #19 Tennessee

Tennessee should have no troubles with Auburn and will just need to be careful not to look too far ahead to Mississippi State on Sunday. Auburn is winless in conference play and that should continue here.

#10 Florida at #1 Wake Forest

A big non-conference tilt for the Gators that should have the entire SEC behind Florida in an effort to help the rankings for all the SEC teams. Wake beat #5 North Carolina on Wednesday with a full lineup so Florida will have their work cut out for them.

#12 Mississippi State at #20 Georgia

This is one of two marquee matches on Friday in the SEC. Georgia had been the tale of two teams at home and on the road until last weekend when they dropped a home match to Tennessee. I suspect Georgia swapped Montgomery and Reinberg at the top of the lineup as they matchup better with Borges and Oradini that way. Walker Duncan’s availability remains a big question but should he remain out I’m going to guess that doubles 5 and 6 may be the crucial matches that help determine the winner of this one.

#78 LSU at #23 Kentucky

LSU has been competitive in a few matches this year but with Gabor Csonka missing from the lineup and the fact that it’s on the road at Kentucky I expect a quick Wildcat win here.

#6 Texas A&M at #22 Vanderbilt

The second Friday marquee conference matchup. Vanderbilt is at home where they have been very good and the team is playing very well despite a 4-2 loss at Mississippi State last weekend. They have proved to be very tough to put away in hanging to the very end with Florida and Mississippi State and while you have to think A&M is the favorite here I would not be surprised at all to see a Vandy upset. Remember, Vandy was one point from an upset of Wake Forest earlier this year when Baker Newman had a serve called out that looked pretty darn close. Expect Vandy to be up for this match. 

Saturday March 31

#240 Arkansas-Pine Bluff at #40 Ole Miss (DH)

All 6 active players on the Ole Miss team should pick up a pair of wins here, that about all the ink this match is worth.

Sunday April 1

#47 Alabama at #43 Arkansas

After facing Ole Miss on Friday, Alabama gets Arkansas Sunday for two very competitive matches they should be in. Arkansas on the other hand needs to get back in the win column after a rought 3 loss road swing last week on the east coast.

#192 Nebraska-Omaha at Arkansas (DH)

Chalk a couple wins up for the Hogs. Should get some guys in that haven’t seen much playing time.

#84 Auburn at #20 Georgia

With or without Duncan the Bulldogs should be able to handle this home match against Auburn, but that is exactly what we thought when they lost to South Carolina and Arkansas. If Auburn is going to entertain pulling off an upset they are going to have to find some chemistry with the new doubles teams to snag the double point and then try to take advantage of some potential weakness at 6. De Vicentis is very capable at 2 and then someone else will just need to step up big.

#10 Florida at #26 South Carolina

Florida has 3 doubles teams ranked in the top 12 which will be a tall task for South Carolina and their new doubles pairings this week. Harrison O’Keefe is starting to show signs of the form that had him splitting time at #1 last year and the matchup with Perez-Blanco should be one of the better matches. Florida probably has too much depth and 3-6 will be tough spots for South Carolina to find wins at.

#6 Texas A&M at #23 Kentucky

On paper A&M should win this match but a road match at a talented Kentucky team is never easy. Matsumura is extremely hot and the matchup between he and Kypson should be a good one. I’d also expect a slugfest on 2 with Bushamuka and Rinderknech that should be very entertaining. Kentucky’s problems have been at 5 and 6 and they are going to have to have someone step up there to pull off the upset.

#78 LSU at #22 Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt at home should handle a short-handed LSU team without too much trouble. Shane Monroe has shown flashes at the top of the LSU lineup but the Commodores will prove to be too deep in this one.

#12 Mississippi State at #19 Tennessee

This may be one of the most competitive matches of the weekend. Both teams have excellent doubles teams and I expect that to be tightly contested. If you look at the UTRs the Bulldogs have the advantage at every position except one where Scott Jones is a really tough 5. But Tennessee is at home and riding the momentum of the Georgia win so I expect a very close match that could go either way.

The Gators make a several singles changes this week swapping Ingildsen and Perez at 1/2, Perez-Blanco and Vale at 4/5 and Kessler and Andrade at 6/7. The change at 1/2 was a little surprising and who knows what the reasoning there was but it’s hard to argue either way. The swap at 4/5 is clearly a chance to build some confidence for Vale who on paper should be a ridiculously good 4 but has struggled as of late. The 6/7 swap is really irrelevant as you can play whoever you want come game day, but I like Kessler and his leadership and think it may give the Gators a shot in the arm.

Georgia lists Walker Duncan at 5 but the question remains as to whether he is ready yet. The other notable change is the swap of Montgomery and Reinberg at 1/2 which I have to believe is a matchup swap based on Friday’s matchup with Mississippi State.

I give up trying to do any analysis here as Hansson and Fallert have been out which means the doubles teams have to change, and last week Reynolds retired. At least this week they dropped an ailing Babic a spot in the lineup. I’m assuming Reynolds is ok as they actually moved him up a spot in front of Wilson.

Women

Screen Shot 2018 03 29 at 9.10.33 PM

 

The South Carolina women remain in the top position this week in the SEC with Florida and Vanderbilt continuing to sit one game back. If the top 3 feast upon each other it could open the door for Georgia to sneak back into the mix but it is in all likelikood a 3 team race. This week we see a lot of top vs. bottom matchups that on paper should only spread the standing even further. The Georgia/Auburn match is the only one affecting the top 4 teams that would seem to be able to put a kink in the plans for any of them this week.

Thursday March 29

#60 Alabama at #8 Georgia

Alabama has shown some fight and been competitive in many of their SEC matches but they have yet to be able pull one off and this doesn’t look like the time to start. The Bulldogs should have no issues here.

#48 Arkansas at #12 Florida

The Gators are hot and playing at home. The worry every week has to be that they stay healthy given they only have 6 women on the roster, but so far so good and this should be a good prep for them heading to their big non-conference matchup in Lake Nona Sunday.

#15 Auburn at #38 Tennessee

Even though Auburn is #15 in the rankings they are only 4-3 in the conference and need to run the table to put themselves in a top 4 position heading into the SEC Tournament. Tennessee should not pose a huge threat here and the Tigers should get to the big match with Georgia Saturday in good shape.

#97 Missouri at #6 South Carolina

Not a pleasant sight for a struggling Missouri team seeing the conference leaders on the road. This should be a quick one for the Gamecocks.

 

Friday March 30

#10 Ole Miss at #47 LSU

There may be a big disparity in rankings between these two teams but they are 4-4 and 3-4 in the SEC. Ole Miss would seem to be the favorite but they are on the road at LSU and this is one of the matches that I think could surprise this week if LSU comes out strong in doubles.

#25 Mississippi State at #33 Texas A&M

The suddenly hot Bulldogs head into College Station riding Anastasia Rentouli’s 5 consecutive 3 set match clinches. What that means is Riley McQuaid better prepare herself for a long critical battle on court 4. Both teams have only 3 losses in the conference so the winner puts them in a good position to separate from the middle of the pack.

 

Saturday March 31

#60 Alabama at #38 Tennessee

This had to happen sooner or later right? Two of the three SEC winless teams finally face off so somebody has to win. Tennessee comes in with the higher ranking and they are at home so it would seem to be their match to lose.

#48 Arkansas at #6 South Carolina

The second of what should be a pretty easy pair of home matches for the Gamecocks this week to push them to 10-0 in the conference. Arkansas has only won one conference match and it would seem improbably that they could go into Columbia and pull off an upset.

#15 Auburn at #8 Georgia

This is the marquee matchup this weekend for conference matches. The Bulldogs have to be a slight favorite as they are at home and Auburn has not quite lived up to some of the expectations so far this year. This will be an opportunity for them to get a big road win and move up in both the SEC and national rankings.

#97 Missouri at #12 Florida

Florida should have no trouble here but they will want to dispatch the Tigers as quick as they can as they have to head down to Lake Nona afterwards to get ready for the big matchup with Texas at the USTA National Campus.

#20 Kentucky at #2 Vanderbilt

Kentucky has made a change at the top of their lineup this week but either way they will have a tough time taking down either Sharma or Contreras. While Kentucky still holds a decent ranking they do not own a single win over any of the current top 25 and the Commodores are just too good.

#95 Western Kentucky at #38 Tennessee

This is a non-conference battle that might be able to give the Vols a chance to build a little confidence and possibly a couple wins in a row if they can manage to beat Alabama at home on Friday.

 

Sunday April 1

#12 Florida vs #7 Texas (Tennis Channel)

While not a conference match this will be one of the best matches of the weekend and you can catch it live on Tennis Channel. Did you hear that? Let me say it again… LIVE ON TENNIS CHANNEL! Everyone should be tuning in to watch and dare I say offer remarks on social media to let Tennis Channel know you are watching so they keep this kind of coverage going. All that aside, the Gators have been hot and they will meet an equally hot Texas team that has won 8 straight after dropping 4 of 5 in early February to 4 teams currently ranked in the top 11.

#25 Mississippi State at #47 LSU

Another mid pack battle for the Bulldogs as the 5-3 Bulldogs meet the 3-4 Tigers. After a very slow start to the season for Mississippi State they have hit their stride and this weekend will tell them a lot as they battle a couple mid pack teams on the road. LSU is in much the same boat in meeting a couple of teams in the middle of the SEC standings this weekend. Much like Florida and Kentucky, LSU only lists 6 women on the lineup for the weekend so getting out of the first match of the weekend healthy will be a big key for them.

#10 Ole Miss at #33 Texas A&M

Texas A&M makes a change in their doubles lineup this week even though they have fared pretty well the last couple matches so not sure why Ivascu was pulled. Nevertheless the Aggies will look to extend their 4 match win streak as they take on both schools from the state of Mississippi this weekend. Ole Miss has won a couple in a row but they have not managed to win three matches in a row in over a month before the SEC season started. Facing LSU and Texas A&M this weekend gives them a very good chance to put a nice string together but things are never easy on the road.

    It is rather stunning that neither Georgia, Virginia, nor Baylor will likely be hosting a regional this year. Who would have suspected that when the year started?

    Virginia had to replace about everyone so them struggling isn't too surprising and Baylor had to replace it's top two though I still thought they'd be a top 15 team. Georgia's struggles this year have been very surprising since they returned the same starting six from a team that was likely a rain delay away from playing for the national championship last year.

    Why has Henrik Wiersholm been missing from the Wahoo's lineup. He is still listed on their roster.

    Henrik is taking a redshirt season due to injury

    Baylor still has a decent shot to host so I wouldn't count them out yet. They are 19 this week (although already set to drop to 23 next week with a 9th match added) and have not played any of their 5 Big 12 matches yet. How they fare in the Big 12 is TBD but with all 6 of the teams in the top 30 they will have plenty of chances to tack on quality wins. Virginia was a given to be out of the hosting. Georgia is definitely the surprise given they returned the whole team but sometimes the injuries just kill you.
