NCAA Men’s Tennis DI Regionals Simulated 50000 times

I’m sitting in the middle of exams and term projects looking for ways to relax. What better way than to run a Monte Carlo Simulation of each of the men’s regionals, based on my year-end ratings?

So I ran each regional 50,000 times and you can see the results. One of the more intriguing of course is the Nashville Regional, where I could not really account for the home court (and probably outdoor) advantage the Vanderbilt will have over Columbia. That probably sways things a little, I am guessing in the range of 5-15%.

The first number is how many times each team won the entire regional. The second is their probability of coming out of the regional.

BEST FIRST ROUND MATCH-UPS: The Vanderbilt-Virginia Tech match-up looks good, as do the Oklahoma State-Michigan, Memphis-Drake, South Florida-Florida State,  Northwestern-Mississippi, Wake Forest-Louisville, Boise State-USD and Auburn-Harvard. There are a few more, but that’s my quick take.

Midwestern State men edge St. Edward’s; advance to Sweet 16

WICHITA FALLS - The St. Edward’s men’s tennis team gave top-seeded Midwestern State all they could handle Sunday afternoon before falling 5-4, in the NCAA DII Men’s Tennis Round of 32 matchup at the MSU Tennis Center.

In doubles action, PEDRO BRONSTRUP and FELIX BAKE took down the 11th-ranked duo of Tomas Grejtak and Ramon Toyos, 8-6 at the number one position. After PATRICK CLYNES and ALEXANDRE BUENO dropped their match at number two doubles to Kacper Boborykin and Kyle Davidson, 8-5, PEDRO BRONSTRUP and FELIX BAKE were engulfed in a dogfight with Midwestern State’s Jarrod Liston and Zack Santagate. The match would go to a tiebreaker where the Hilltoppers prevailed, 8-6. That gave St. Edward’s a 2-1 lead heading into singles.

Bake made it 3-1 as he blitzed #43 Davidson, 6-1, 6-4, at the number two spot. The Mustangs came roaring back taking wins at the numbers three, six and five spots to take a 4-3 lead. After dropping his first set to #27 Boborykin, Clynes rallied to win the match in three sets, 3-6, 7-5, 6-2. That tied the match at 4-4, with Agoglia and Liston still to finish at number four singles. Agoglia won the first set easily but Liston came back to win the final two sets, 1-6, 7-5, 6-4, and clinch the match for Midwestern State.

“It was great to go up 2-1 out of the doubles,” head coach Russell Sterns said. “Every single singles match was strongly contested. After five hours, the match could still have gone either way. We just literally came up one or two points short. Midwestern State had a great home crowd and we wish them the best of luck at Nationals.”

St. Edward’s ends its season with a 15-8 record. After starting the season 1-5, the Hilltoppers were victorious in 14 of their last 17 matches. Along the way, they captured their six-straight Heartland Conference Championship and advanced to the NCAA DII Tournament for the 13th time since moving up to Division II in 1999.

WICHITA FALLS – The St. Edward’s men’s tennis team defeated Colorado Mesa, 5-1, Saturday afternoon in its opening-round match of the NCAA South Central Regional Tournament at the MSU Tennis Complex. The victory moves the Hilltoppers on to the Round of 32 where they will face host, Midwestern State.

In doubles action, the duo of PATRICK CLYNES and ALEXANDRE BUENO teamed up to win quickly at number the number two position with an 8-4 win over Mesa’s Blake Demond and Cody Freischlag. After the Mavericks evened the match with a win at number three doubles, St. Edward’s responded with a win at the number one spot.

Ahead 2-1, St. Edward’s needed only three singles victories to clinch the match. They would get wins from MAXIMO AGOGLIA, PATRICK CLYNES, and ADRIAN GARZA.

St. Edward’s will take on Midwestern State on Saturday at the MSU Tennis Complex. First-serve is set for 2 p.m. in the Round of 32 match. The two teams do have some history when it comes to regional tournament play. The Hilltoppers and Mustangs met in a Round of 32 matchup in 2007, in which St. Edward’s won.

TexasCollegeTennis.com Final Reg Season Men’s Rankings

Here are the men’s final regular season rankings. Apologies for the problems on the women’s side. I have a small issue in getting this streamlined that I have not been able to put the time into fixing.

I will also probably not do my replication of the ITA rankings this year. I have several reasons why, but the main is time. I know there are several people who in recent years contact me for various answers, so please feel free to do so still.

TexasCollegeTennis.com Men’s Rankings 4-21-14

USC takes the top spot in the latest TexasCollegeTennis.com Rankings. Peter Smith’s Trojans are riding high on a 16-match win streak, having dispatched of cross-town rival UCLA this past weekend to clinch their 325th Pac-10 title (I’m just wondering if anybody reads this)…

In other news, I will be cracking down on SIDs who use the terms rout and dominate in 4-3 and 5-2 wins later this week…

In even more shocking news, I believe all of the bugs (I am liar, most of them) have been worked out in calculating women’s rankings again and I hope to get some posted in the next 24-48 hours.

TexasCollegeTennis.com National Men’s Rankings 4-7-14

Another week, another top-ranked team.

The top-6 are still bunched up at the top, with Texas and North Carolina in a group back then a strong group of nine teams hanging on for those top-16 seeds.

I think the interesting question is, how good is Columbia? With a floury of late ranked wins, this is a team that will sniff that area of the rankings but probably not get enough ranked wins to get a home seed.

I am guessing they’ll get shipped to UVA or Notre Dame for the first rounds. Maybe to Columbus.

Texas College Tennis Men’s Rankings March 31, 2014

UPDATE 8:20 CENTRAL MONDAY — There are some changes. I tried a new method to clean the data and several teams were either missing or duplicated, so there are a few changes. It goes to show what I said below about the teams at the top and ow close they are.

Another week, another set of rankings…. this is shaping up to be an amazing season. The top-6 teams are ridiculously close. Indoor/Outdoor, Home/Away… The next six are also way too close and could be interchanged as well. Good times.

TexasCollegeTennis.com Men’s Rankings as of March 24

Apologies for not posting rankings in a month. I have been swamped with projects. I also thought maybe a little more time between releases might be good. Here are the updated rankings…

The Oklahoma Sooners are at the top.

I hope to post a women’s version by next week. If you have any questions, tweet me or send an e-mail to sixmanguru at gmail dot com. That’s the easiest way to get ahold of me.

TexasCollegeTennis.com National Rankings 2-25-14

(updated on 2-25 at 930pm thanks to a reader who brought two missing teams to my attention… I am sure there are more)

Here are the updated TexasCollegeTennis.ocm Men’s Rankings as of matches played by Sunday (February 23)  and recorded by 8:00 am February 25. This is key. Several people have indicated that their records do not reflect their results. Unfortunately, in each and every case, those missing scores have to been reported to the ITA website.

Again, several schools may be included that are NOT playing or who have NOT entered any matches. A few may be playing that for one reason or another I have omitted from my start file. Please let me know. (sixmanguru at gmail dot com is the easiest way to reach me)

I have had several questions about how the rankings are derived. I won’t go into much detail, but refer you to a website or two to help explain if you have more questions.

The basic concept comes from the ELO Chess Rating System (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system). I evaluate it this way.

Each team starts with a generic rating. I start with them in groups with the same rating. Then, when two teams play, you take the difference in the rating and determine a probability of what the result should be. You compare that with what actually happened (one team won, one lost)… and then adjust the ratings accordingly. You do this recursively (over and over).

So basically, I run through the season in order, over and over continually adjusting the ratings, until you reach some sort of equilibrium (or as close to that as you can). Not sure that helped. Hope it did.
