A solution in search of a problem.

Prior to tournaments like this, the coaches submit their lineups. There is a challenge period where any other coach can challenge the submitted lineup as a stack, and the ITA can force the coach to alter their lineup if it is indeed found to be a stack. I know the UCLA and OSU men have had to alter submitted lineups in advance of the NCAA Tournament at least once in the last few years.

UNC used the approved lineup they submitted that was reviewed by the coaches. Maybe their #4 just had a bad day.
