Men's Tennis Claims Ninth-Consecutive Big Ten Championship

“To win an outright title is unbelievable and to claim nine straight championships is a pretty nice feeling,” Tucker said.

Such is the life of Ohio State men's tennis coach Ty Tucker these days: Watch your juggernaut of a team win yet another Big Ten outright regular season championship, while also extending an NCAA home win streak record to 188 matches, and you simply dust off one of five gracious statements you have at the handy, change a number and boom, quote.

Tucker's No. 1 Buckeyes (26-3, 10-0 B1G) have now won 92-consecutive Big Ten regular season matches, the latest a 7-0 win over Iowa Friday night at the Varsity Tennis Center.

Everyone that took the court earned a win for OSU, including senior ace Peter Kobelt, playing the second-to-last last home match of his career, and taking that opportunity to clobber Iowa's Jonas Diercks, 6-1, 6-1.

The Buckeyes close out their Big Ten slate with a home match against No. 63 Nebraska Sunday.
