Virginia Duals Seeds ..

They normally release a statement with some details on seeds and so on but they didn't this year so here's is my somewhat educated guess on this:

Hampton River Pool:
#1 seed - Virginia Tech (#9 in NWCA Coaches Poll)
#8 seed - ODU (#41 in WrestleStat Rankings FWIW)
#9 seed - Campbell (#46 in WrestleStat)

James River Pool:
#2 seed - Arizona State (#10 in NWCA Coaches Poll)
#7 seed - Virginia (#31 in WrestleStat)
#10 seed - Iowa State (#53 in WrestleStat)

Poquoson River Pool:
#3 seed - Northern Iowa (#11 in NWCA Coaches Poll)
#6 seed - Chattanooga (#38 in WrestleStat)
#11 seed - Kent State (#49 in WrestleStat)

York River Pool:
#4 seed - Lock Haven (#20 in NWCA Coaches Poll)
#5 seed - Oklahoma (#28 in NWCA Coaches Poll)
#12 seed - Bucknell (#61 in WrestleStat)
#13 seed - Fresno State (#71 in WrestleStat)

I did a pre-seeding guess last week and the only difference I see is that UVa is the #7 seed instead of the #6 seed. Not sure why they are behind Chattanooga and arguable they could have been a #5 seed over Oklahoma as statistically they are about equivalent teams. By not having them as the #5, you wouldn't have to adjust in the semifinals as I believe there is an agreement that VT and UVA can't meet until the finals (maybe I am wrong on that, and UVA was the #4 seed last year but got beat by NDSU).

UVa will have to beat ASU instead of UNI to get to the semifinals, although not much difference and probably no change in the ultimate result for the Cavs which is a spot in the Silver Round. I sent an email to the tournament director suggesting ODU and Iowa State would be good opponents for VT due to the location of ODU (in-state) and former head coach (ISU) ties but alas only got ODU.

IMHO, look for VT - LHU and ASU - UNI semifinal matches.
