"The scores don't really tell the full story. Tennis is a tough sport and it is very physical. It is tough on you mentally and emotionally. Our players are embracing it and obviously doing it pretty well."- Head coach Joey Scrivano on the match

"I think we are competing really hard and are focused on the task and process. We are obviously not getting too hung up on the outcome and that is an area I am really proud of. It is hard to not look too far ahead and not just do the job in front of you. For back-to-back days we have done a great job of focusing on the task and good things have come from it." -Scrivano on the focus of the team.

Baylor will face No. 25 Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Championship final at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The Bears beat Oklahoma State 5-2 earlier this season.
