    Final Big 12 Regular season standings

    Baylor 4-1
    Oklahoma 4-1
    Texas 4-1
    TCU 1-4
    Oklahoma State 1-4
    Texas Tech 1-4

    Not sure what tiebreakers they used but Baylor came out looking good. If they used point differential in conference play as the TB Baylor would have been 1, OU 2, and Texas 3 so they couldn't have used that. They couldn't have used ITA rankings because if they did that it would have been OU 1, BU 2, TX 3. They couldn't have used most wins because it would have been BU, OU, TX. They couldn't have used fewest losses because it would have been OU, TX, BU. They couldn't have used overall winning percentage because it would have been OU, TX, BU. The only criteria I can see that was possibly used aside from them flipping a coin was Total Points Scored because BU scored 123 points, Texas 111, Oklahoma 106 however if they did that 4, 5, 6 would have been Okie St, TCU, and TT and it wasn't so who knows.

    Friday
    #3 Oklahoma vs. #6 TCU
    #4 Texas Tech vs. #5 Oklahoma State

    Saturday:
    #1 Baylor vs. TT/Okie St winner
    #2 Texas vs. OK/TCU winner

    If Oklahoma wins out they'll be #1 in the final regular season rankings and will be the #1 seed in the NCAAs.

    Okie State up breaks on all courts against Texas Tech - looks like they'll take the doubles point with ease.

    Texas Tech jumping on Okie State in singles leading on 5 of 6 courts so far.

    Hinnisdaels was leading the 3rd set 5-0 vs Gerch but now is only up 5-4. It's 3-3 and was looking like a Texas Tech win before the Gerch rally

    Gerch completes the 0-5 to 7-5 comeback win. Ridiculous choke from Hinnisdaels.

    I fear for TCU right now. They are up on 1-3 which is shocking yet somehow Oklahoma is taking it to them at 4-6. There will be at least one 3rd set on 1-3

    OU might end up regretting moving Andrew Harris back up to 3 and Dane Webb down to 4. They have alternated, but Webb is more experienced in these pressure dual matches and seems to me to have done better than Harris this year.

    It sounds like the team is mailing it in for the Big 12 title. I guess they are ok with getting blasted by the despicable Sooners. He probably has a small cold or something.

    Yeah because you care more than the players! Really, how do you come out with some of this nonsense. If he could have played he would have - accept it. They have a strong squad anyway

    doubles are a mess without him. Having to do combinations never seen before and plus it eliminates any chance of winning at singles 2,3 or 4. I hope they release his sickness report so we can evaluate if he could have played or not.

    I actually am a doctor. I have heard all kinds of stories about players playing while sick and infact sometimes they play better because focus is sharpened. Glasspool better have a serious illness today to be missing the Big 12 tournament match vs rival Oklahoma.

    Nice, wishing him a serious illness! You really are one of a kind. When was the last time he missed a match since he's been there? A fan like you would know that. Try supporting instead of moaning ALL the time

    just lost doubles easily. You can close the book on this one. I won't even follow live stats for singles.

    see you all come NCAA time

    Nice jinx. :)

    Harris drop the second set 5-7 and Siegel falls behind 1-4 in the third set at #5. OU still favored, but tight.

    Well good news for Oklahoma is that Ghilea has been playing pretty good in the low parts of the line-up

    based on the blog, this is hard to watch tennis. Each point is ending in a bad error.
