Men's Tennis Wins the Big Ten Tournament. Again.

By Ross Fulton on April 27, 2014 at 3:32p

Say hello to depth. Despite losing No. 1 and No. 2 singles, the Ohio State men's tennis team pulled out a 4-2 win over No. 2 seed Illinois at the MSU Outdoor Tennis Courts in East Lansing to win the program's eighth Big Ten Tournament championship in the last nine years.

“It was another hard-fought match,” Tucker said. “Our guys stepped up to the challenge when they needed to. We knew it was going to be a back-and-fourth battle when you play a Top 10 team like Illinois. Ralf, Kevin and Hunter showed their toughness today and we took advantage of our opportunities and made Illinois pay for it. It was a great win for the Buckeyes.”

Next up for the No. 2 Buckeyes (30-3): The 2014 NCAA Championships, held in Athens, Georgia, in two weeks.

Congrats Ty Tucker and Team. It's great to have the depth on this team and players are constantly rising above the stress. Has eight in nine years ever been accomplished before Ross? 

My guess is NO 

I'm so looking forward to the N.C.

Congrats, Buck Netters!  Tough to get to the top of the mountain, and tough to stay there wearing that "bulls-eye".

Good luck at the NCAA's!
