    Troy upset #47 south Alabama, even with their strong top 2 losing. 3 and 4 picked up the slack.

    Troy is a dangerous team for anyone, they may now be the favorites for Sun Belt, they lost 4/3 to Ole Miss and Tennessee, they are deep and can play, only weakness was at #3 from what I saw, but he is a Freshman and can be moved around

    i think there is no surprise they beat S.Alabama, Troy nearly beat SEC Tennessee.
    Match vs S.Alabama was clinched at 4-1

    also UNC-Greensboro beat UNC-Wilmgton. It looks like the Seahawks' time in the sun as a dangerous mid-major is over.

    The Troy v USA match came down to a tie-breaker in doubles. Count USA in the same class as Troy.

    If you count Ivy, then Columbia. Outside of that maybe Drake or San Diego.

    Nice result for Incarnate Word's Tucker Brown as he defeated TCU's Trevor Johnson in straight sets. They played at SMU in the morning and at TCU in the afternoon (singles only).

    Nice win. He's been playing well. Ivic and Smoljan are decent at 1 and 2. (I hit with Ivic on occasion). But the team really had no depth. I think there is potential to be a top team in the Southland, just need to capitalize.

    North Florida in a good one with South Alabama. It looks like UNF's #1 had to retire at 5-5 in the 1st set.

    UNF won 4-1 , yes #1 retired.
    UNF is some serious team right now, their only seniors are #2 and #3
    even had a chance vs Vols of Tennessee, only other loss is 0-4 vs Denver (thats scary..UNF only won one set in that one)

    I guess they have turned their program around. Back when I was in law school at Maryland in the 90's they were really terrible.

    from their homepage (lol....)

    Men's Tennis Upsets National Power VCU, 4-2 ....(before 2 seasons okay..but not now...)

    UMBC has 2 losses at Corpus Christi and a sweep to Vtech...but thats not bad...
    Gray/Drean were in ITA Regional finals down at Virginia and lost there to Shane/Corinteli ..but to be in the finals was great. They also beat Bjerrehus/Contini 8-4 in the VTech match. (also in singles only 1 set won vs Vtech)
    Jan Kononoov was one of the best Div. II players last seasons at Armstrong Atl.
    Melker Svard was a decent junior in Sweden ( a better one as A.Fahnehjelm who is now at Miami for example)

    Impressive performance by the Lobos. I thought they were grossly overrated at 45 but they've been showing they deserve it recently.

    Penn was chanceless yesterday at all.
    UNM is a decent team, ranked right there where they belong in the 40s to 50s region. Might not sneak out the MWC title with Boise (which they should beat this year) and SDSU in there. Nevada also competing here. Could be an-at-large selection.

    W/M lost 1-4 to SDSU and the Big Jackson State loses 1-6 to the even bigger FAU.

    UNCW just best #25 drake. Looks like you spoke a little too soon. I think this is the first time they were able to play their full line-up...

    I'm Certainly shocked by that result. UNCW has shown no signs they were capable of that so far this year.

    Just saw that Xander Veys of UNCW was up 7-6(4) 4-6 6-5 (40-0) when the match was abandoned at #2. Literally a point away from a win over the #38 ranked player in the nation Ben Lott. Now how stupid is that? I bet you anything that Lott was watching the other court and probably ran off the court when the other match ended at #3. Veys is robbed of a big ranked win. He has a decent record this year, so that win would have probably got him into the top 125 and considering there aren't any players from the Colonial in the top 125 right now, this abandonment will likely cost Veys a spot in the individual tournament.

    4-3 win by Pepperdine over Memphis. Very young Pepperdine team, and I think they get more scholarships for next year. Should be more interesting to follow in 2016.
