Note that 4th seed Jake Langenfeld and 7th seed Jake Trotta declined their invitations to participate in the game, causing alternates Bryan Pravel and Matt Sundstrom to be tapped and other players to move up in selection order. Second seed Kevin O’Kelly had to bow out Friday evening, opening the door for Adib.
