What To Watch This Weekend – Men’s National Team Indoors, ECAC @ Penn, College MatchDay, FSU/Miami Women

The Men’s National Team Indoors in Chicago is THE event this weekend with Ohio State the top seed and definite favorite. The top seeded Buckeyes open up with Tulane on Friday and with a win in that match they’d move on to face the winner of the Virginia/Stanford match. Almost all of the round of 16 matches are expected to be highly competitive with many 4-2 and 4-3 scores sure to come.

Men’s National Team Indoor Preview

It’s going to be strange to have an ITA Men’s National Team Indoor Championship without Virginia but that’s what we get this year after the Cavaliers were knocked out in the regional rounds. The University of Washington will host the event with half the matches to be played on campus at the Nordstrom Tennis Center while the other half will be played a few miles away at the Seattle Tennis Club. This year’s event is wide open with multiple teams having a legitimate shot at raising the hardware on Monday afternoon.
