WACO, Texas (AP) – Virginia has won its second NCAA men’s team tennis title in three years and denied top-seeded Oklahoma its first championship.

The No. 3 seed Cavaliers wrapped up the crown Tuesday when Mitchell Frank won his singles match against Andrew Harris for a 4-1 victory.

It was the second straight year the Sooners have lost the title match under coach John Roddick, the older brother of 2003 U.S. Open champion Andy Roddick.

The younger Roddick was in the stands as Oklahoma never led after losing the doubles point and dropping two of the first three singles matches.

The Cavaliers beat UCLA for the school’s first title in 2013. Oklahoma lost to 21-time champion Southern California last year.
