Individual rankings were also updated this week, which saw three OU newcomers. Junior Mason Beiler fell from No. 69 to No. 105 in the ITA singles rankings. Beiler is 12-11 on the season. The other individual was senior Jake Van Emburgh who entered the rankings at No. 110. Van Emburgh is 7-8 on the season.

The Sooners also had one of their double teams ranked for the first time this season. Sophomore Alex Martinez and freshman Nathan Han entered the rankings at No. 52. They are 9-3 on the year, along with being 2-0 against ranked teams this season.

Oklahoma will be back in action at 12 p.m. CT on Saturday, March 27 against UCF in Norman. The match will be televised on Fox Sports Oklahoma.
