2015 Men’s NCAA Championships: Day One Prelims Scoring Predictions

After the day one prelims an idea of who’s going to take the lead after tonight’s finals has emerged, and it seems as though the Longhorns are going to be up big on Cal.

Note: all results do not include diving 

The Longhorns are set up to take 50 points in the 500 freestyle. They’re also projected to score over 25 points in every single event besides the 50 freestyle. They faired up extremely well against the psych sheets which should put them in a fantastic position if they’re able to maintain a similar picture tonight.

Cal had a great prelim session and based on that is sitting second behind Texas. They swam very well on the relays, especially the 400 medley relay where they took the top seed heading towards finals. Cal also came up big in the 200 IM where they locked in two swimmers in the ‘A’ final and two in the ‘B’ final.

Florida should be close to Cal tonight based off their prelims performances. They’re supposed to put up 116 points tonight. Caeleb Dressel was a huge part of their effort, taking the top seed in the 50 free and helping the team in the 200 free relay.
