On Tuesday we'll find out if the third time is the charm for the Virginia men's tennis team, in its ongoing quest for its first-ever NCAA championship.
The Cavaliers advanced to the NCAA Tournament final for the third straight year with a 4-1 win over Georgia in Monday's semifinals. UCLA beat Ohio State in Monday's other semifinal, setting up a match-up of the tournament's top two seeds in Tuesday's championship match.
Virginia took a 1-0 lead by winning the doubles point on Monday, but the Bulldogs pulled even when Ben Wagland beat Jarmere Jenkins 7-5, 6-3 at No. 1 singles. Mitchell Frank won the No. 3 singles 6-3, 6-3 to put the Cavaliers back in front, then Julen Uriguen extended the lead to 3-1 with a 6-3, 7-5 win at No. 6 singles.
Alex Domijan clinched Virginia's third straight semifinal win with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 win at No. 2 singles.
Virginia hasn't faced UCLA since a 4-2 UVa win in the 2010 NCAA quarterfinals. The Cavaliers lost to USC in each of the past two national finals.
Tuesday's match begins at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
