Full NCAA Selection List

LOS ANGELES - UCLA junior men's tennis player Benjamin Kohlloeffel, the nation's No. 1-ranked player, has been named the top seed in the singles draw at NCAA Individual Championships, which run May 24-29 at the Taube Tennis Center in Stanford, Calif.

Kohlloeffel, who owns a 37-4 overall record, is the Bruins' lone entrant in the singles draw. He and teammate Philipp Gruendler are the No. 2 seed in the doubles draw. The duo owns a 28-2 overall mark and recently set a new school record by posting their 20th-consecutive dual-match victory.

UCLA's last NCAA Singles Champion was current head coach Billy Martin, who captured the title as a freshman back in 1975. Justin Gimelstob and Srdjan Muskatirovic were the last Bruin doubles team to win an NCAA title, achieving that feat in 1996.

UCLA is the No. 10 seed in the team championships, which begin on May 13 at college campuses throughout the country. The round of 16 begins on May 20 in Stanford.
