We’ll start with the men who entered their tournament as the top seed in the western division. I’ll fly through their quarterfinal match against Indiana. Illinois won the doubles points with a 6-2 wins from Alex Brown/Zeke Clark on court 1 and Hunter Heck/Aleks Kovacevic on 3. A 6-1, 6-4 win from Noe Khlif followed by 6-3, 6-2 wins from Kovacevic on 1 and Heck on 3 gave Illinois the 4-0 win. This was expected and was not interesting in the slightest, so I will not discuss this match any further.
The next match was much more interesting.
