ASouth’s MEGA NCAA Regional Recap

20160513_171703-1

I give the people what they want.  While we are all gearing up for the Elite 8 Matches and sending out preview after preview, I wanted to take a look back at all the different things that happened in the NCAA Regional this past weekend.  About 50 teams participated this weekend, so it would make…

5/19 Power Rankings – NCAA Style

hop

We’re a day late on this, mostly because my colleagues have working behind the scenes to get some Elite 8 Previews for you all and I have been working at a Regional Recap (that sounds weird) for all of those small teams out there.  Additionally, we’ve been trying to come together for our annual “Superlatives…

NCAA Regional Preview – The Emory Region

emory

Last but not least, the Emory Preview.  As always, I’m going up against the clock for this one as the Emory region technically begins today at 1PM with a pretty big match in NC Wesleyan vs. Washington and Lee.  Since I probably won’t get this done before that match, the preview seems kind of moot…

Power Rankings 5/11

Time for some postseason Power Rankings! Despite not a ton of matches happening in the past week but a LOT of hype from NCAAs, Power Rankings will always be posted on Wednesdays.  Anyways, there’s also something else that is very exciting going on for the blog and that would be NCAA BRACKET CHALLENGE.  If you…

Upset Alert! Who to watch out for at NCAAs

Before I begin my article, just wanted to quickly plug our 2016 NCAA Tournament Bracket Challenge!!!  It works the exact same way as the NCAA Basketball Tournament, and apparently the winner gets interviewed by D3NE.  I’m not sure if that’s a prize or a punishment.  All kidding aside, this is always extremely fun, and I…

5.4 Power Rankings

DSC01146

Here we have, as D3NE would say it, the last Power Rankings of the regular season. Even though some conference championships are still going on, those are considered post-season.  So, to all of you readers, it’s been a great regular season! We’ve come a damn long way from the first power rankings of the season…

Players of the Week: 4/25-5/1

REGIONAL PLAYERS OF THE WEEK: April 25th-May 1st Happy Monday, boys and girls, and welcome to the final POTW of the regular season. Now, I don’t want to get too reflective on you here, as there is still the most important tennis of the season yet to be played, but I thought that this week’s…

Regional Roundup – Report Cards

As teams finish up their regular seasons, I’m feeling retrospective, and also don’t feel recapping a million matches, so instead I will recap a million teams!  Not every team is done with their regular season or conference tournament yet, but I’m going to give each team a grade, and then justify said grade with a…
