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.

Among the survivors:

  • No. 1 Oklahoma
  • No. 2 Baylor
  • No. 3 Virginia
  • No. 5 TCU
  • No. 6 Texas A&M
  • No. 7 Southern California
  • No. 8 Georgia
  • No. 13 North Carolina
One of the best things about this list is that Illinois, to my knowledge the only other team besides Oklahoma to beat Baylor during the regular season, fell to North Carolina, who will face TCU in the quarterfinals on Saturday for a chance to play the winner of Baylor and USC.

Women's Tennis to Play Virginia

Baylor will play No. 9 Virginia in the NCAA Round of 16 tonight at 8 p.m. at the Hurd Tennis Center in Waco. Baylor is the No. 8 seed in the tournament and stand as narrow favorites over the Cavaliers. A win will send the Bears through to play the winner of No. 1 USC and No. 16 Texas Tech.

Softball Opens Postseason in Lafayette

Baylor Softball will open up the preseason tonight against Mississippi State at 5:30 p.m. The Bulldogs finished tenth in the SEC and are underdogs against Baylor, who are the second-strongest seed in the regional after UL Lafayette. The game will be broadcast online by ESPN3 and carried by ESPN 1660 in Waco.
