(1) Pepperdine, (2) BYU, (3) Vanderbilt, (4) Cal Poly
Pepperdine is one of five schools in the Golden State playing host to an ITA Kick-Off Weekend event. The Waves may be one of the deepest teams in the entire field, with four ranked players in their singles lineup and former Top 100 player Alex Llompart returning after missing the fall.
BYU will counter with three ranked players of its own, led by No. 43 Georgy Batrakov, a grinder from Russia who knocked off Top 10 player Kevin King of Georgia Tech at the ITA All-American Championships.
Vanderbilt hopes to have its No. 1 player, Ryan Lipman, back from injury, while Cal Poly No. 1 Andre Dome quietly enters Malibu as the No. 22 player in the country. With great feel at the net and two handed groundstrokes on both sides, Dome defeated No. 13 Alex Musialek, No. 18 Andreas Mies and No. 26 Ignacio Taboada at the ITA All-American Championships.
