USC men's tennis beat Oklahoma 4-2 to win the national championship on Tuesday. In the process, the Trojans as a university won their 100th national championship overall. In case that's not impressive enough: Troy's men's tennis team has won five of the past six NCAA titles.

A final bit of symmetry: The Pac-12 and Los Angeles area schools ruled the collegiate tennis world this year: Earlier Tuesday, UCLA won the NCAA championship in women's tennis. The Pac-12 has now won a total of 468 NCAA titles, the most of any conference.

The Trojans secured their 21st tennis title by beating Oklahoma 4-2. They came back from a 2-0 deficit after dropping the doubles point and the initial singles point. Ray Sarmiento, Max de Vroome, Eric Johnson, and Michael Grant all won singles pairings for the Trojans, and that secured the landmark championship victory.
