Fifth-ranked Longhorns 5-0 against Texas schools after beating TCU

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Fifth-ranked Texas defeated TCU 4-2 in front of more than 1,000 fans at the Friedman Tennis Center on Saturday afternoon.

The Longhorns (12-2) improve to 4-1 in road matches and 5-0 against teams from the state of Texas this season. Texas has won seven consecutive matches against TCU (6-3) and have an all-time series advantage of 27-16.

"Defeating TCU on their home court is a great win for us," head coach Michael Center said. "TCU is really good this season and they showed that by taking it to us in doubles. Singles was hard-fought down the line, so I was proud of the way our team responded. We have become a pretty mature team, knowing how to stay in these close matches after taking some punches. Physically we looked very strong today."

The Longhorns fought back with four singles victories after dropping the doubles point with losses at the No. 1 and No. 3 doubles positions.

Junior Adrien Berkowicz improved to 9-2 in dual match singles with a quick consecutive set victory against TCU's Rodolfo Bustamante (6-3, 6-3), which put the Longhorns on the scoreboard and tied the team match 1-1.

Sophomore Nick Naumann gave UT a 2-1 team lead by defeating Trey Daniel in consecutive sets (7-5, 6-2) at the No. 5 position. Naumann is now 11-2 dual match singles play.

After freshman No. 60 George Goldhoff was edged at the No. 3 position to tie the match, junior No. 22 Lloyd Glasspool and senior David Holiner picked up three-set wins to help clinch the match for the Longhorns.

Glasspool earned his ninth win against a nationally-ranked opponent this season by defeating No. 51 Nick Chappell in three sets (3-6, 6-3, 6-4) at the No. 2 position, which gave Texas a 3-2 team advantage.

Holiner proved to be the match-clinching point for the Longhorns with a three-set victory against Jhonathan Gonzalez (6-4, 3-6, 6-2) at the No. 6 position.
