Ohio State men's tennis might be the best program in the entire athletic department yet to finally capture a season-ending team national championship in its sport in recent years. Men's tennis has won the past 13 Big Ten championships and just capped an undefeated Big Ten season this year. Its dominance in conference is unquestioned.
It's still chasing an elusive national championship in that stretch, even getting as far as the tournament finals in 2009. It got one step closer to the brass ring in dispatching Mississippi State in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals this afternoon.
