Texas Tech Twosome Falls Short of NCAA Doubles Championship Title
The NCAA Doubles Championship run of Texas Tech's Raony Carvalho and Gonzalo Escobar came up one victory shy of a national title as the duo was bested by the nation's No. 1 doubles tandem of Chase Buchanan and Blaz Rola (Ohio State) on Monday at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Ga.
The Red Raider tandem, ranked No. 18, had recorded four upsets in advancing to the final match, but against the top-ranked Buckeye duo Carvalho and Escobar fell in straight sets, 7-6(4), 6-3.
The TTU pair finish the season with a 14-2 overall record and 9-2 mark against ranked opponents.
