ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Yannick Hanfmann rallied late in the third set to beat Justin Shane in singles and help Southern Cal win its fourth straight national championship with a 4-2 victory over Virginia on Tuesday night.
Rain delayed the start of singles 3 hours before the match at the University of Georgia was moved indoors just before 1 a.m. Wednesday. Hanfmann clinched the Trojans' 20th national title with a 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (4) win.
Virginia lost to Southern Cal for the fourth straight year in the tournament and for the second consecutive year in the finals.
Steve Johnson, the No. 1 seed in the upcoming NCAA singles tournament and the event's defending champion, gave Southern Cal its first point of the finals, beating Jarmere Jenkins 6-3, 6-2 for his 66th consecutive victory.
