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.

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.
