2017 Season Preview: #12 Williams Ephs

Happy Super Bowl Sunday, boys and girls! I’m dealing with my Pats anxiety by diving into The Blog. I strongly considered making this whole article prop bets-themed, but I think I’ll turn that into a separate article somewhere down the road. You know, something like, “over/under 1.5 NE teams in the final four”, or “over/under 20 times…

2nd Annual Top 20 Teams of the Past Five Years

This is my season preview and the 2nd Annual Top 20 Teams of the Past Five Years.

MIT Invitational Recap

Lost in the past weekend of #Surprise(s) and Small College Nationals was the MIT Invitational. While this is not a new tournament, it might as well have been this fall. Last year, MIT hosted teams like BU, Dartmouth, and Harvard for this tournament, but this year it was STACKED with DIII talent. 8 teams made…

NE ITA RECAP

Another New England ITA, another showcase of the best depth the country has to offer. I’ll save the ramblings for the recap itself, but congrats to both Lubomir Cuba and Kyle Wolfe/Jerry Jiang on taking home the hardware. Rather than go through the actual event piece by piece, D3Regional and I are going to go through…

New England ITA Preview

Happy ITA weekend, boys and girls. The New England ITA is the best thing that happens during the fall season in my 100% biased opinion. The amount of talent at this ITA is bordering on dangerous, and that’s without some of the region’s top players! The #1 player in the region and player generally thought to…

KICKOFF: D3NE AND HIS RAMBLINGS

Hello again, boys and girls, and let me be the 2nd person to welcome you to another rousing year of DIII tennis. D3AS did his thing and give a broader overview of the DIII landscape with his Burning Questions, and now here I am to take you through my eight teams for the 2016-2017 season. If you haven’t…

The Greek’s Freshman 15 – Fifteen Freshmen to Watch This Season

The new season is upon us, which means a new set of upsets, nail-biters, and, most importantly, freshmen. A few months ago, I wrote an article for the Tennis Recruiting Network (TRN) describing the impact of recruiting at the D-III level and how the caliber of recruits is at an all-time high. Today, I want…

Hello fans, as I did last year, I’d like to get an article out to you with some analysis of the NCAA Team Tournament (Elite 8) as well as the NCAA Singles Tournament. I’m going to be using the UTR (Universal Tennis Rating) system. UTR is increasing in popularity as a tool, and is proving…
