2016 Men’s NCAA Scoring Projections: Longhorns on Way to Title

2016 MEN’S NCAA CHAMPIONSHIPS

Behind a strong evening session, including some help on the diving boards, the Texas Longhorns have set themselves up to secure a second consecutive team title tomorrow night.  The Longhorns have built nearly a 100-point lead on the field, with three more likely top-3 finishes tomorrow.

Behind Texas lies a solid battle for second place, though it appears Cal has the edge.  The Bears maintained their second place standing tonight with 271 points, and are lined up for a runner-up finish.  Florida is currently running third with 255 points.

Below is a full scoring update coming out of the Friday evening session.  We’ve also included each teams’ psych sheet scoring to better represent how each particular team is performing relative to their seeds.  The final column shows–if seedings hold tonight–what each team’s new projected final score would be.

The Tennessee divers are really carrying the team…they’ve almost outscored the swimmers to this point. For the third spot on the podium it’s going to come down to NC State and Florida. If Florida’s diver scores (they have one in the psych sheet for platform), then I believe it is game over. If not, it’ll come down to the relay. No doubt it’s going to be close!
