TEAM/SINGLES/DOUBLES

TEMPE, Ariz. – Two-time defending NCAA national champion Virginia opened its 2017 spring campaign last week, and eked out a pair of 4-3 victories over Vanderbilt and No. 15 Kentucky, along with a 7-0 win over ACC foe Louisville to remain atop the national rankings, as Oracle and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced the latest Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Division I Men’s National Rankings on Wednesday.
​  
Florida was impressive in last week’s Pac-12/SEC Showdown, defeating then-No. 8 USC 4-3 and then-No. 6 UCLA 4-2 to move from No. 11 to No. 6 in this week’s ranking. North Carolina and Northwestern were the other teams to see upward movement in the Top 10, with the Tar Heels climbing from No. 7 to No. 5, and the Wildcats going from No. 9 into a tie for No. 7 with UCLA.

A reminder that 2017 saw a shift in the national team rankings, with the system converting to a Top 25 poll as selected by a panel of 14 coaches for both men and women that comprise the national rankings committees. When the rankings move to the computerized format in late-February, the Top 50 teams will be publicized.

Petros Chrysochos of Wake Forest remains the nation’s top-ranked singles player, while teammates Christian Seraphim and Skander Mansouri occupy the No. 1 doubles ranking.
