California Team Page

TULSA, Okla. - Florian Lakat trailed in the third set to the nation's top-ranked player but grinded out a three-set victory to clinch California's 4-3, NCAA quarterfinal win over fifth-seeded Ohio State at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center and send the Golden Bears to their first semifinal since 1991.
 
Lakat, ranked 30th, prevailed 6-3, 2-6, 7-6(6) over No. 1-ranked Mikael Torpegaard at court-one singles, with the rest of the Bears rushing the court and forming a dogpile in celebration.
