No. 2 Oklahoma edges No. 10 Duke

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- A comeback win by Dane Webb clinched second-ranked Oklahoma’s 4-3 victory against Duke on Saturday afternoon in San Diego, Calif. 

Webb cruised to 6-1 first set win, but dropped the second 1-6. Despite falling behind, he battled to win the tiebreak set 6-3 against Bruno Semenzato.

“Dane did a great job of regaining his composure in the third set,” head coach John Roddick said. “He did a tremendous job of making adjustments in his third set today.”

Playing in the No. 1 spot, Axel Alvarez won the first singles point for OU, ousting Michael Redlicki in straight sets 6-4, 6-2.

Alvarez’s doubles partner, Guillermo Alcorta, followed suit, defeating Jason Tahir 6-4, 6-4, putting OU up 3-2.

Oklahoma secured the doubles point with wins at the No. 1 and 3 positions.

In the No. 1 position, Webb and Andrew Harris won six consecutive games, beating Hemmeler and Saba 8-3.

Nick Papac and Peerakit Siributwong topped Levine and Pura 8-5, in the No. 3 spot.

“We fought hard against Duke,” Roddick said. “We were able to compete for the win, but we definitely have some things to improve on. I was really proud of our effort late in the match. I give Duke a ton of credit, they played really tough and had chances to win it.”
