Texas freshman Jordan Windle looks like the class of the field on platform, besting defending NCAA champion David Dinsmore by 10 points in this morning’s prelims. Those two should finish 1 and 2 tonight, battling for the title.
Texas will have 1 diver in the A final and 1 in the B, with Jacob Cornish finishing 12th this morning. He’ll dive in the consols shortly.
Indiana got freshman Andrew Capobianco into the A final in 5th. He’s their only diving entrant tonight.
Based on prelims, Texas should score 25 points in diving, while Indiana should score 14. That might just tip the national title to Texas, which trails IU by a single point after scoring swimming prelims, but now should lead by about 10 with diving factored in.
The only other wild card is the mile, where neither Texas nor IU are expected to have any scorers, though Cal is seeded to score 20 points from two swimmers.
Back to diving: defending platform NCAA runner-up and last night’s 3-meter winner Steele Johnson will not be in the mix tonight. He missed the A final, finishing 9th by just 6 points after struggling on his low-degree-of-difficulty round 5 dive.
