Sooner Men’s Tennis Advances To Championship Final
Oklahoma’s men’s tennis team advanced to the NCAA Championship final with a 4-2 win over UCLA in the national semifinals in Athens, Georgia, on Monday.
The Sooners won the doubles point, then after losing some of the early singles matches, got wins from Guillermo Alcorta and Alex Ghilea in third set tie-breakers to break a 2-2 tie and go on to win 4-2.
OU will face USC in the championship at 4:00 on Tuesday.
“It was a really good hard fought match,” OU head coach John Roddick said. “I’m proud of our guys.”
The Sooners will be seeking their first national title in men’s tennis, while the Trojans will be playing for their ninth title.
USC won four straight national championships from 2009 to 2012.
