TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Henrik Wiersholm rallied from a 5-2 deficit in the second set for a 6-2, 7-6 victory over Andre Biro, clinching a 4-1 victory for Virginia over Oklahoma in the NCAA men’s tennis final Tuesday night.

It was the second straight national championship for No. 1-seeded Virginia (30-4) and third in the past four seasons.

Last year’s title also came after a 4-1 win over Oklahoma (20-11), which lost in the final for the third straight season and has never won it all.

After winning the doubles point, Virginia went up 2-0 after J.C. Aragone defeated Oklahoma’s Florin Bragusi 6-3, 6-4 in the No. 5 singles slot.

The No. 11 Sooners pulled within 2-1 after a No. 1 singles victory by Andrew Harris over Ryan Shane, 7-6 (6-2), 6-0, but the Cavaliers secured another win at No 3 singles when Thai-Son Kwiatkowski completed a 6-4, 6-4 triumph over Spencer Papa.
