Men's Tennis Will Play for an Indoor National Title on Monday After Taking Down Texas in Semis

Ohio State destroyed Texas on Sunday to earn a shot at an indoor national title.

Rematch, anyone? 

After Ohio State's men's tennis squad lost to Wake Forest on the outdoor courts in last year's national championship, the two programs will meet again tomorrow – this time on the indoor courts – with an ITA National Championship on the line. 

Ohio State earned a trip to the championship round via a 4-0 shutout of Texas while the Demon Deacons took care of business, 4-2, against North Carolina. 

The championship event will take place at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow in Chicago. 

Against the Longhorns in the semifinals, Ohio State used singles wins from J.J. Wolf, Hunter Tubert and John McNally while doubles partners Alex Kobelt and Kyle Seelig also captured a victory. 

The Demon Deacons beat Ohio State by a score of 4-2 in last year's outdoor championships. No doubt, the Buckeyes will have revenge on their minds.
