MT opens the tournament against the Blue Devils, who finished as the No. 8 team in the country this season. Northwestern and Virginia Tech round out the Blue Raiders four-team field. The Wildcats were ranked No. 42 at the end of the 2012 season, while the Hokies were No. 45.
The national tournament highlights the best collegiate tennis in the country, featuring 15 host locations and four teams in each field, with each team guaranteed two matches. The winners of each of the first two matches at an individual site will play in a championship match, while the losers will square off for a consolation match. The winner of the championship match at each site will be invited to play in the Feb. 15-18 ITA National Team Indoor Championship hosted by the University of Washington.
