CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Seedings have been announced for the 2016 Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Men’s Team Indoor Championship with all competition over the four-day event (Feb. 12-15) scheduled to take place at Boar’s Head Sports Club in Charlottesville, Va.
Tournament host and top-seeded Virginia will face No. 16 San Diego in a first-round match on Friday, Feb. 12 at 6:30 p.m.
Admission to the tournament is free.
The seeds in the #ITAIndoors field were determined based off of an unpublished ranking conducted by the National Ranking Committee earlier in the week. Texas A&M is the No. 2 seed. North Carolina is seeded third, followed by USC at No. 4 and TCU at No. 5. Rounding out the Top 8 are Ohio State (No. 6), UCLA (No. 7) and Oklahoma (No. 8). Teams were moved to avoid playing opponents in the first round already on their respective regular-season schedules.
