Good team effort. Oklahoma State will be a difficult challenge tomorrow.

Will be really tough if Vukic can't play, hopefully he's able to go.

The reason Vukic was held out of singles not specified.

I hope it isn't a lingering injury as he has a good chance of winning title in individual tourney.

Lost doubles point and 2 singles matches, but still have a chance. Clark, Vucik and Kova won first sets and Hiltzik is in the 3rd set.

Illini will face #6 TCU next in Athens. TCU beat the Illini 5-2 in the regular season this year.

Great win, but the fact that they went skydiving yesterday is insane. Or actually a brilliant coaching move. haha When I saw the photo's I thought that they were joking and just put on some gear for a photo-op.

Punking Okie State appears to be becoming routine these days.

On court in Georgia vs TCU.

Georgia live scoring not working.

Well, that's another good season in the books for the Illini. I would have loved to see just one more win, but I expected one fewer (and LOVED that one), so that counts as a fun finish in my book.

http://fightingillini.com/news/2017/...und-of-16.aspx

No. 1 Norrie beat Vukic 6-3 6-4 and Hiltzik lost 6-4 7-6(5). Zeke Clark nabbed the only completed Illini point in a 6-4 6-4 win.

There's lots to look forward to next season. Go Illini!

TCU is a good team and a tough match-up as they can equal our strength at the top of the lineup. Should be a good team next season as the frosh get a year older and we add another good recruiting class.

Hey it isn't over quite yet. Let's hope for a deep run in the singles tournament for Vukic. Maybe really, really deep!

Absolutely right!

Did we ever hear why he was held out the other day? Health, or maybe just rest?

Looks like he's not playing. So maybe he has been hurt recently...
