Anderson, who in 2012 became only the second UCLA player in history to win an ITA National Indoor singles title following Jane Chi in 1995, is seeded No. 2 in the 32-player singles draw. She opens up the event against Georgia State's Abigail Tere-Apisah on Thursday. Chanelle Van Nguyen, who earned a spot in the tournament by winning the USTA/ITA Southwest Regionals in October, will meet Virginia's Danielle Collins in the first round. Freshman Jennifer Brady takes on third-seeded Beatrice Capra of Duke.
In doubles, UCLA's Brady and Catherine Harrison are the No. 1 seeded doubles team. Similar to Van Nguyen, the Bruin duo claimed the title at the USTA/ITA Southwest Regionals. Brady and Harrison have a bye in the first round and will take on Auburn's Jackie Kasler and Jennifer Pfeifler in the round of 16.
