#24 Illinois stuns #3 Ohio State 4-3 to win the Big Ten

wow! this result came out of nowhere. Illinois has not been very good for their standards this year and Ohio State had been mowing down the Big Ten all year.

This will shake up the final standings. Might drop Ohio State to 4 or 5, which would mean a dreaded semifinal matchup with Southern Cal. Good news for Virginia who will probably move up to #3 now.

Ohio State dominated doubles sweeping them by 8-4 8-3 scores.

singles: Illinois won 2,4,5,6

1: 11 Chase Buchanan def 8 Dennis Nevolo 6-2 6-2
2: 41 Roy Kalmanovich def 6 Blaz Rola 6-4 3-6 6-3
3: 67 Peter Kobelt def Bruno Adelnour 6-4 6-2
4: Tim Kopinski def 115 Ille Van Engelen 6-3 6-1
5: Stephen Hoh def 84 Devin McCarthy 6-4 0-6 6-1
6: Ross Guignon def 105 Connor Smith 7-6 6-4

Illinois beating OSU is a surprise but by winning 4 singles matches? I guess it had to happen this way since OSU's doubles are really good, but the Illinois' sweep of 4-6 is very impressive.
