Men's Tennis Defeats USF
Play Southern California on Saturday
Baylor put away South Florida pretty easily yesterday by a score of 4-1. preventing drawn-out matches is essential at this part of the competition to preserve energy for the later rounds. Baylor did this successfully; No. 1 seed Oklahoma did not, barely beating No. 16 UCLA.
The action continues tomorrow when Baylor plays seventh-seeded Southern Cal at the Hurd Tennis Center. Show up. Periscope it to us like Drew Mastin did on twitter yesterday.
