SEATTLE - The draws have been unveiled for the 2012 NCAA Men's Tennis Singles Championships, with Husky junior Kyle McMorrow set to compete amongst the field of 64. First round action is Wednesday, May 23, with one round each day until the finals on May 28. This will be McMorrow's second appearance.
The tournament is held at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Georgia, with the University of Georgia serving as hosts.
McMorrow is ranked 23rd in the ITA singles rankings and looking to make his first extended run in the tourney after dropping a close first round match last year. He will have a tough first round draw again, as he faces Sadio Doumbia of Georgia, who will get the home court advantage. Doumbia is ranked 32nd in singles. First serve is set for 11 a.m. Pacific time.
An All-Pac-12 First Team selection for the second straight season, McMorrow is also shooting for All-America honors, which are earned by reaching the NCAA round of 16, or finishing in the top-20 of the final singles rankings.
Washington saw its NCAA team run ended in the second round in a 4-0 loss at Pepperdine. The Waves went on to make the national semifinals, upsetting host Georgia in the quarterfinal round.
