Wayne State responded with a point of its own when Grey bested Forcano 6-4, 6-3, to make it 2-1. In Match No. 5, Barry's Arnau Rodriguez beat out Drenth 7-5, 6-1 to extend his squad's lead to 3-1. 

Barry clinched the national championship victory in Match No. 3 when Alessandro Giuliato took down Karcz 6-2, 7-5 to give the Buccaneers their third-straight national title.

No. 3 Barry, No. 4 Wayne State to meet for national championship

After nearly four hours of a highly competitive semifinal, No. 4 Wayne State edged out No. 1 Columbus State 4-3 after  the sixth and final singles match between Wayne State's Niklas Karcz and Columbus State's Tommaso Schold ended with a 6-2, 5-7, 7-6 (7-3) victory for Karcz, breaking a 3-3 tie in the match and clinching  Wayne State's spot in the national championship.

The semifinal was a back-and-forth affair with Columbus State winning the doubles points. Columbus State also had a 2-1 lead, as Wayne State tied the match at both 1-1 and 2-2 before going ahead 3-2 on Daniel Grey's 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 win in the No. 4 singles match. Then it was Columbus State's turn to knot things up with Pietro Martinetti's win in the No. 5 singles match.

At 10 a.m. ET Sunday, Wayne State will face No. 3 Barry, which handled its business against Flagler with a 4-0 victory Saturday morning.
