March 28, 2014

NORMAN, Okla. — No. 3 Oklahoma fell 4-3 against No. 11 Texas in its first Big 12 match of the season Friday night at the Penick-Allison Tennis Center in Austin, Texas.

“Our guys fought hard and competed really well,” OU head coach John Roddick said. “We just have to take a few more chances in the big moments. We have to bounce back and get ready for Sunday.”

In singles play, OU battled for three points.

Senior Guillermo Alcorta finished first, with a 7-5, 6-3 victory over Lloyd Glasspool.

Playing in the No. 3 spot, Andrew Harris remained focused after dropping his second set 1-6, and came back to beat Adrien Berkowicz 6-4, 1-6, 6-0.

Harris’ doubles partner, Dane Webb, earned OU’s final point. Despite falling 6-7 in the second set, Webb battled back, ousting George Goldhoff 6-3, 6-7, 6-2.

The Longhorns won the doubles point with wins at the No. 1 and 3 positions.

The Sooners look to get their first conference win Sunday, March 30, when they face TCU in Ft. Worth, Texas.
