The Texas team of Lloyd Glasspool and Soren Hess-Olesen knocked off a Baylor duo Sunday to reach the finals of the NCAA doubles championship.
On Monday, they’ll take on Texas Tech’s Hugo Dojas and Felipe Soares.
Baylor is playing host to the NCAA championships.
The UT duo beat Diego Galeano and Julian Lenz, 2-6, 6-3, 7-6(3).
It’s the second time in three seasons that a Longhorns doubles team has reached the NCAA finals.
“To beat Baylor at Baylor in the semifinals takes a great effort, and that’s what they gave today,” said Texas coach Michael Center. “The quality of tennis was very high on both sides. We did a great job on our service games, and just played a great third-set tiebreaker when we needed it. Great win. Those guys very are excited to continue playing.”
