NCAA MTEN: Pac-12 eliminated with exit of two USC players
With the exit of two USC players in Friday’s round of 16, the Pac-12 is completely out of the NCAA men’s tennis individual championships. The Pac-12 accounted for seven singles players and three doubles teams in the 64-player and 32-team brackets, respectively.
The USC tennis season is over with the exits of Yannick Hanfmann and Jonny Wang. Hanfmann, a No. 9-16 seed, fell to seventh-seeded Noah Rubin of Wake Forest in straight sets (6-2, 6-4), while Wang dropped a three-setter to Felipe Soares of Texas Tech (6-3, 3-6, 6-2). Both seniors, Hanfmann and Wang wrap up their careers as All-Americans. Hanfmann finishes the Trojan chapter of his life as a five-time ITA All-American and this season’s ITA Southwest Region Player of the Year, while Wang earned ITA Southwest Region Most Improved Senior of the Year honors this year in addition to his All-America accolade.
