Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25: April 20, 2022

Pat Mitsch | April 20, 2022

A version of chaos typically reserved for the postseason in collegiate athletics started early in women's college tennis, as the Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25 women's poll saw its first big jumble ahead of the major conference tournaments beginning this week.

 

Only one team in the women's Top 12 has the same ranking as it did last week -- No. 1 North Carolina -- though it now shares the top spot with Oklahoma, as the ACC and Big 12 continue their battle for supremacy. The men's poll this week is doing its best impression of the women's poll for much of the season, as the Top 15 remained unchanged.

 

Many Division I conference tournaments begin this week. Click here to find where and when for each.

 

Each team's point total, specified below, is the sum of its ranking points from the USTA's panel of voters (listed below). Each voter ranked 25 teams from Nos. 1 to 25, with the first-place team receiving 25 points and the last-place team receiving one. For control, the highest and lowest outlying ranking for each team on the ballot was removed. First-place votes were not tallied. This week's poll includes 16 voters, making the maximum number of points available 350.

 

The 2022 voting panel includes votes from the following representatives: Casey Angle (former Intercollegiate Tennis Association Director of Championships); Virgil Christian (former USTA director of college tennis); Richard Croome (former journalist); Sonny Dearth (Daily Press; Newport News, Va.); Judy Dixon (former UMass women’s head coach); Alex Gruskin (Cracked Racquets); Chris Halioris / Matt Stachowiak (Cracked Racquets); J. Webb Horton (Former Florida Gulf Coast men's head coach); Granger Huntress (Texas College Tennis); Andy Katz (NCAA.com); Bobby Knight (College Tennis Today); Brandon Moglen (Tennis Channel); Lisa Stone (Parenting Aces); Caitlin Thompson (Racquet); Scott Treibly (USTA contractor); Laura Vallverdu (Between Lines); Dallas Oliver/Shannon Wrege (Tennis Recruiting Network).
