Texas Tech Men's Tennis Wins Big 12 Finale
COLLEGE STATION, Texas - The No. 58-ranked Texas A&M men's tennis team fell to the No. 61-ranked Texas Tech Raiders, 4-2, in a Big 12 match that was resumed Wednesday at the Omar Smith Tennis Center on the A and M campus, after being suspended earlier in the month.
Texas Tech quickly took the lead 2-0, after a default at the No. 3 singles and winning at the No. 1 spot. A&M's Brent Horan tallied the Aggies first point when he defeated the Red Raiders' Adam Baronoski, 6-4, 7-5, at No. 4.
The Red Raiders took the next two points with wins a the No. 5 and 6 spots. A&M's Robbie Krause took a three-set-win over Steve Wood, 7-6, 4-6, 6-3, at No. 2. Doubles were not contested.
"Texas Tech just beat us," A&M head coach Tim Cass said. "We controlled our own destiny today as this match had some big implications for the NCAA Regionals. We knew what we had to do today, but we had a lack of success."
