Ohio State men’s tennis scored a big win against Mississippi State in the NCAA Super Regionals, securing a spot in the final rounds of the NCAA tennis championship in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The Buckeyes, ranked No. 1, showed their prowess with a 4-1 victory, improving their season record to 33-1. Next up, they’ll take on Columbia, the No. 8 seed, in the quarterfinals on Thursday, with the match airing on ESPN+ at noon.

In their last home game of the season in Columbus, Ohio State got off to a good start by winning the doubles point. Although one of our pairs, Andrew Lutschaunig and Justin Boulais, lost, the duos of Robert Cash and JJ Tracy, and Cannon Kingsley and Jack Anthrop, secured victories, giving us a 1-0 lead.

Boulais and Cash continued the momentum in singles, with Boulais dominating his match and Cash securing another win. Despite Mississippi State winning one singles match, Jack Anthrop sealed the deal for the Buckeyes with a win, bringing the final score to 4-1.

Coach Ty Tucker expressed satisfaction with the win but emphasized that the team’s focus now shifts to the next challenge. The Buckeyes are aiming for their first-ever NCAA championship, having reached the quarterfinals numerous times under Tucker’s leadership. Last year, they made it to the final but fell short against Virginia. With a perfect home record this season, the Buckeyes are determined to make this year count.
