Texas Tech head coach Tim Siegel
On the performance: Oklahoma is very difficult to beat. They are very strong and tough. I am just proud that we played as well as we could in the doubles, especially at 2 and 3. In the singles, we were carried for the first half of the year from our number 1 and 2 players, and it is only fitting that those two guys would take us home. Those guys played phenomenal tennis. For (David) Gonzalez to beat (OU's Andrei) Daescu after having match point and losing the tiebreaker just shows how much heart and toughness he has. It is never easy.
On the upcoming match against Texas: We lost to them 4-3 early in the year at our place. Obviously they are going to be a little fresher, but we are excited about the opportunity. We match up well with them at certain spots, and we feel like if we play well that we will have a chance. But, they are one of the top two or three teams in the country so we know it is going to take an incredible effort.
Oklahoma head coach John Roddick
On team's performance: I thought we played really hard. We had lost to Tech twice already, and now three times. So, we know they are a little bit better than us on most days. At the same time, we know we have chances. We have played them close every time, but our team fought really hard and that's all you can ask out of the guys. We were down after the doubles and drew the match out. Sometimes in tennis you are going to win some of those and lose some of those but we fought hard. There is not a lot we can look back on and change, and from a coaching standpoint that is not always a bad thing.
