2018 MEN’S NCAA SWIMMING & DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Indiana lead the meet after day 2 with 169 points over NC State with 165. If we add remaining psych sheet points (which doesn’t include diving, a strength for Indiana) Indiana lead with 401 projected points over  NC State with 395 and Texas with 364.

Vs seed (so swimming events only) the best day belonged to Georgia who picked up 33 points over the psych sheet. Next were Stanford who gained 29, Florida who picked up 23. The other main contenders, 3rd place Texas and 5th place California each gained 6 points over the psych sheet. The biggest drop offs came from Michigan who lost 30.5 points and Texas A&M who lost 27.

The highest single individual event score was Indiana’s 42 points on the 1 meter. Next was Florida with 36 in the 200 IM, and Michigan and Texas each with 33 in the 500 free.

Scoring Summary

Psych sheet doesn’t seed diving so I compared day 2 swimming only points to the psych sheet to get an idea of how team’s performed vs base line expectations.

This is the first time in awhile that the result was not a foregone conclusion after day 2.

Not only that, but there are freaking FIVE teams in contention!!! I have no idea who will win! This is shaping up to be a team race for the ages.

Go Indiana – they are having the championships of their lives as well

Indiana wins this meet by 10-15 points. Put It in the record books.

Wow. Based on psych sheet and factoring in diving, Indiana should run away with this meet. But – they also don’t have a lot of room to move up from seed in their events.

Looks like NC State and Texas are lined up for 2nd place, since Texas will get diving points, and Cal and Florida battling out for 4th. Not a great night for Cal as compared to their seeding. Still, it’s very early and anything can happen.
