2012 Men's Tournament Bracket 

The University of Minnesota men's tennis team is headed to Oklahoma to face Tulsa in the first round of the NCAA tournament. The winner of the Minnesota-Tulsa match will face the winner of the match between host Oklahoma and UMKC. Competition will be held at Headington Family Tennis Center in Norman, Okla., on May 11-12.

Minnesota is ranked No. 36 and finished the regular season with a 13-7 mark. Tulsa checks in at No. 20 in the rankings and is 18-8 overall. The Gophers lead the all-time series against Tulsa 2-1, but the teams have not met since 1993.

Oklahoma, which is ranked No. 12 in the nation, ended the season with an 18-3 record. UMKC is unranked and completed the year with a 10-15 record.

Tulsa has won eight straight matches and has won 12 of its last 13 contests. Tulsa is making its 14th appearance in the NCAA Tournament and its seventh-straight trip to the national competition.

This is the fourth straight year and fifth time in six seasons under coach Geoff Young that Minnesota has earned a bid in the NCAA tournament. Minnesota lost 4-3 to Fresno State last year in the first round of the tournament in Berkeley, Calif. Young previously led Minnesota to the second round of the NCAA tournament in 2009 and 2010.
