Today may be Cinco de Mayo, but the month of May is tournament time for college tennis. The first and second rounds of the NCAA Division I Tennis Championships start this Friday, and by Sunday we should know which 32 teams - 16 men's and 16 women's - will be making the trip to Tulsa.

- Finally, the three official sources - NCAASports.com (men, women), the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, and College Tennis Online - are always great sources of information.
