Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Rankings: What You Need To Know

MEN/WOMEN


TEMPE, Ariz. – Oracle and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced the updated Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Division I National Team Rankings on Wednesday, with little movement in the men’s and women’s Top 25.

On the men’s side, Cal took sole possession of the No. 5 spot, after sharing it with Georgia (No. 6) on Jan. 4. TCU and UCLA are tied for No. 7, while Duke entered the poll for the first time, checking in at No. 25. There were no changes to the women’s Top 25.

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.

A new wrinkle this year sees the national ranking panel voting on the Top 25 teams, with computerized rankings are in effect for singles and doubles. The national team rankings will shift to the computer system following the ITA National Team Indoor Championship in February.
