COLUMBUS, Ohio – The fifth-ranked Ohio State men’s tennis team  won its eighth-consecutive Big Ten Conference regular-season title Sunday when it beat No. 26 Michigan, 4-0, in Ann Arbor. The championship marks the Buckeyes’ 11th overall as they were co-champions in 1915 and winners in 1931 and 1943 as well.

Ohio State finishes the regular season atop the Big Ten standings with an 11-0 conference record and will play host to the Big Ten tournament starting Thursday at the Varsity Tennis Courts. Earning the No. 1 seed, the Buckeyes will have a first-round bye and will face the winner between the Nos. 8 and 9 seeds at 9 a.m. Friday. Ohio State will host the event for the first time since 2002. In all, the Scarlet and Gray have won the conference tournament eight times – 1991, 2001, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.

For some odd reason the link is taking me to outlook but if you want to see the tournament bracket click HERE. In other news, I hope we draw Illinois in the semifinals. They ended our streak last year, and revenge would taste sweet to return the favor and knock them out. 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.
