• Baylor tennis teams both advance to NCAA’s third round

    Women’s tennisBuilding on already successful regular seasons, the Baylor men’s and women’s tennis teams each took advantage of playing at home to advance to the NCAA Tournament Round of 16 over the weekend. The women will be playing in the tournament’s third round for the fourth straight year, while the men have advanced at least this far in each of the last seven seasons.

    The fifth-ranked women beat Oral Roberts and Tulsa; they will face 12th seed Miami in the Round of 16 Thursday at 9 a.m. Baylor defeated the Hurricanes 4-1 in Coral Gables earlier this season. The 10th-ranked men, meanwhile, breezed past Oral Roberts and Texas A&M this weekend. They will take on No. 8 Tennessee this Friday at noon.

    From here on out, all matches for both the men’s and women’s tournament will be played at the University of Tulsa’s Michael D. Case Tennis Center. For live updates, ticket info and more, visit BaylorBears.com.
