So many good defenders/movers. 4 of top 5 are reknown for their excellent defensive and counterpunching abilities. 3 from this list are sophomores/in their 2nd seasons; Stefani, Di Lorenzo and Minor(Aney follows at 31, Ogando 32, Daniell 33, McCarthy 34, Hammond 35, Golovin 38, Fahey 41, Danilina 43, Shkudun 44..).

Only 3 Pac 12 players are from the top 50(Doyle is at #52, Starr, #62), Manasse, Davidson and Marker. Queen of the West is Stefani, ranked #2(fellow teammate Ahmed is ranked #48).
=====
Austin(6), Gavrilovska(15) and Brinson(21) are the only ones who didn't make NCAA singles.
