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. Slam.Tennis will have updated brackets and match times throughout the weekend plus they’ll have a running scoreboard in addition to the scoring and video links. I think they’ll only be streaming video on 7 of the 12 courts so I guess we’ll have to...

Weekend Schedule & My Preview of the Wake Forest/Virginia Showdown (Premium)

The last day of March brings us one of the biggest matches of the year as No. 1 Wake Forest hosts No. 3 Virginia in a match that will hopefully be played outdoors if the rain clears out in time. The match was originally scheduled to be the last USTA College MatchDay event of the year but unfortunately the broadcast had to be cancelled due to the uncertainty of the weather which is calling for rain up until about 4 p.m. I’ll be in Winston-Salem this afternoon and am hoping to see outdoor tennis even if the start time has to be delayed a few hours. The Big 12 kicks of its conference schedule on Friday evening with a pair of gems as No. 6 Texas travels...
