(1) Florida, (2) Missouri, (3) Harvard, (4) Louisville
The Florida women's team is No. 2 in the team rankings, as the Gators' two-year NCAA Championship reign ended in 2013 in the semifinals against Stanford. Though they've lost 2013 ITA Player of the Year Lauren Embree, the Gators boast four players in the ITA Top 30, including Olivia Janowicz (No. 17) and Brianna Morgan (No. 18), who is 13-4 with six ranked wins this fall. The Gators also feature former ITA No. 1 Sofie Oyen, who is currently ranked No. 27. The Gators will be heavily favored against their lower ranked competitors.
Missouri is ranked No. 63, Harvard is No. 67 and Louisville No. 70. Watch for Louisville’s doubles tandem of Rebecca Shine and Julia Fellerhoff, who were runners up at the 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, and the duo are ranked No. 2 in the ITA Doubles Rankings behind an 8-1 fall record. Harvard’s top singles players have had strong fall seasons, with Spencer Liang going 9-4 and Monica Lin with an 11-3 record.
