      Agreed. I really love having Joe as AD, but it confounds me how these two programs, he hasn’t figured out yet. But, the new basketball & football hires gave me a lot of hope. When/If changes happen, I believe he will get it right this time.

        The tennis programs, men and women are both doing great. this year. Coach Cohen on the women's side is building a national power in her tenure and the men have picked up the pace since Roddick jumped to Florida several years back. Nice to see these OU programs making an impact on the national scene.

          Agreed. I checked & the guys are currently 10-1. I’m hoping both programs continue to build on their successes.

            Women's TennisFebruary 15, 2022IVANA CORLEY EARNS BIG 12 HONOR


            NORMAN – Oklahoma senior Ivana Corley has been named the Big 12 Athlete of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.

            The Sooners had a monumental run in their first ITA National Indoor Championship appearance in Madison, Wis. OU rolled through their first three matches against Wisconsin, No. 1 Texas and No. 5 Pepperdine to earn a spot in the finals against No. 2 UNC, ultimately falling 2-4 against the three-time defending champions.

            Corley went undefeated by the end of the tournament, 8-0, taking down multiple ranked opponents along the way.

            In doubles, the No. 11 ranked Corley Sisters returned home with four more notches in their belts. They opened the weekend with a 6-4 win over Wisconsin's Xinyu Cai and Alina Mukhortova and a 6-3 victory over Kylie Collins and Sabina Zeynalova of Texas. The duo then picked up back-to-back ranked wins on the doubles court, starting with No. 5 Pepperdine's 15th-ranked pair Liza Zaar and Victoria Flores, 6-4, and following it up with a victory over the No. 1 duo Fiona Crawley and Elizabeth Scotty, 6-3, in the title match with UNC.

            On the singles court, Ivana competed in the No. 3 spot the entirety of the time in Madison, defeating Mukhortova 6-3, 6-1 in the match against Wisconsin. She then went on to take down Texas' Charlotte Chavatipon, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2 before grabbing her ranked win against No. 34 Flores, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1. Closing out her impressive singles run, Corley snagged her highest-ranked win against No. 7 Teilly Tran of UNC, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4, the only Sooner to win a singles court against the Tar Heels.

            This marks Ivana Corley's second career Big 12 Player of the Week honor and first this season. The accolade is OU's third of 2022.

            The No. 8 Oklahoma Sooners are back home Sunday at the Headington Family Tennis Center at noon CT to face No. 10 USC.

                NORMAN — The No. 2 Oklahoma women's tennis team shut out the No. 10 USC Trojans on Sunday at the Headington Family Tennis Center.

                The Sooners (12-1) kicked off the match in doubles, going up against two ranked-duos. The No. 11 Corley Sisters took the first win at the top court, defeating No. 5 pair Salma Ewing and Snow Han, 6-1. To clinch the opening point, No. 47 Layne Sleeth and Alexandra Pisareva took down No. 40 pair Eryn Cayetano and Grace Piper, 6-1, on court two.

                When play was halted, Anchisa Chanta and Emma Staker were down 2-4 against Danielle Willson and Sloane Morra on court three.

                "They [Ivana and Carmen Corley] dominated the court," said head coach Audra Cohen. "I think they're using more options and they're growing as a team even when they're winning."

                With the 1-0 lead on the Trojans, the match headed into singles. Alexandra Pisareva defeated Grace Piper 6-1, 6-0 at the No. 5 spot. To extend the lead, No. 103 Emma Staker took down Danielle Willson on court six, 6-1, 6-0.

                To sweep USC with the 4-0 match win, No. 15 Layne Sleeth took on her highest-ranked opponent of the season, No. 1 Eryn Cayetano, clinching a 6-1, 6-4 victory at the top court.

                "It was a massive win for Layne," said Cohen. "Her style of play and her grittiness is really huge for our program overall. She's a great team player, so to see her also have a big win at her position and give that to her team is really special. She's learning how to be more aggressive in her game and learning more about herself, I'm proud of her for that."

                Ivana Corley, Carmen Corley and Anchisa Chanta's play was halted on court two, three and four with the match win. Ivana was tied, 2-6, 6-3, Carmen was down, 6-2, 1-6, 0-2, and Chanta was up, 6-2, 5-2.

                "The main focus is staying true to the process of improving with every rep we get and UCF next week will be another rep," said Cohen. "Regardless of the outcomes, we have to continuously be finding ways to get better and stay focused on that."

                  What's even more impressive about these ladies is that they are still missing one of their top 2 singles players from last year (she should return this season).

                  The bad thing about the guys' loss is that it was in the National Indoor Qualifier. I'd have loved to see them in the National Indoors, like the ladies

                    NORMAN — The No. 20 Oklahoma men's tennis team defeated the No. 18 Texas A&M Aggies in a 7-0 fashion at the Headington Family Tennis Center Friday night.

                    OU (11-1) earned its second top-25 win on the season, fifth sweep and remains undefeated at home following Friday night's victory.

                    The Sooners kicked things off claiming the doubles point over the Aggies with victories on courts one and two. Alex Martinez and Welsh Hotard rolled through their match at the top spot against Stefan Storch and Noah Schachter. Baptiste Anselmo and Mark Mandlik clinched the doubles point with a 7-5 win on court two against Pierce Rollins and Matthis Ross.

                    When play was halted, Mason Beiler and Nathan Han were up 6-5 against Giulio Perego and Raphael Perot on court three.

                    "The doubles point, as always, is one of our biggest points," head coach Nick Crowell said. "Welsh [Hotard] and Alex [Martinez] did an unbelievable job getting off the court quick, 6-1, against a good team. Then Mark [Mandlik] and Baptiste [Anselmo] got down a break early, broke back, got another break, got down 4-1. We've been talking about having a lot of resilience in these matches and what it takes to win, and they did a great job tonight putting it out in a tight win there."

                    Justin Schlageter continued the Sooners' momentum, notching the first singles win on the night. The junior defeated Storch 7-5, 6-2 at the No. 5 spot. Hotard struck next for OU with a 7-6 (5), 6-2 win over Giulio Perego on court six.

                    Martinez clinched the match for the Sooners in a 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 fashion over No. 50 Perot at the No. 2 spot. Martinez's win was his third ranked win on the season.

                    Play continued with OU picking up three more singles wins. No. 29 Beiler finished next for Oklahoma, defeating Schachter 6-3, 5-7, 1-0 [3] at the top line. On court five, No. 88 Mandlik tallied the win over Ross 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-2 to put the Sooners up 6-0. No. 70 Jordan Hasson closed out the night for OU with a 6-7 (2), 6-3, 7-6 (3) victory on court three.

                    "Everybody came to play tonight," Crowell said. "It was a tug-of-war match and they never let go of the rope."

                                STILLWATER, Okla. — The No. 2 Oklahoma women's tennis team used a late comeback to knock off No. 12 Oklahoma State on the road, 4-3, and claim the program's first outright Big 12 Conference regular-season championship Friday night.

                                Sooner junior Layne Sleeth faced a 4-1 third-set deficit in the final match of the night but won six of the next seven games to prevail 7-5 and deliver the title for Oklahoma (23-1, 8-0). It also marked the program's first-ever perfect regular-season in conference play. The Sooners claimed a share of the conference title on Sunday with a 7-0 win over West Virginia, but needed a win Friday to claim the outright title over OSU and No. 4 Texas.

                                OU/OSU kicked off in doubles, where OU's No.5 pair of Ivana and Carmen Corley took down No.12 Ayumi Miyamoto and Lisa Marie Rioux 6-2 at the top court. Sleeth and Alexandra Pisareva defeated Mhai Sawangkaew and Dariya Detkovskaya 6-2 on court two to clinch the opening point for the Sooners.

                                Singles play got started with intense back-and-forth action. The first singles court victory came from Pisareva at the No. 5 spot over OSU's Sofia Rojas in a dominant 6-1, 6-1 fashion. The Cowgirls clamed the next three singles wins. The first came from Oona Orpana on court four, defeating No. 104 Dana Guzman 6-0, 6-4. The match tied at two after a court six win from Ayumi Miyamoto over OU's Emma Staker, 6-3, 6-2. OSU then took a 3-2 lead with a victory from No. 51 Mhai Sawangkaew over No. 47 Carmen Corley, 6-1, 7-5, on court two.

                                The Sooners tied the match at 3-3 when freshman Anchisa Chanta fought hard for the 6-1, 7-6 (7-2) victory on court three against Martina Zerulo.

                                With the Big 12 outright title on the line, No. 14 Sleeth forced a third set and came back from a 1-6, 7-5, 1-4 deficit to defeat No. 27 Rioux, 1-6, 7-5, 7-5.

                                The Sooners, who are winners of 12 straight and haven't dropped a match since the ITA Indoor National Championship, finished the regular season a perfect 7-0 on the road.

                                The Sooners return to Norman to face No. 5 Pepperdine on Sunday at noon to close out the regular season. The second-ranked Sooners will then play in the Big 12 Championship in Fort Worth, Texas, April 21-24.

                                          Truly thankful for the great coaches we have in men's golf and women's tennis. OU doesn't really have any big advantages in these sports to have an elite program yet they have gotten to that level anyway.
