TCU won four of six singles matches to beat Texas Tech 4-2 Friday and advance to the semifinals of the Big 12 tournament in Norman, Okla.

Winning for TCU were Orlando Superlano, Arnau Dachs, Facundo Lugones and Rodolfo Bustamante.

“I thought it was a tough match,” coach David Roditi said. “Texas Tech played well and really competed. I’m proud of the way we were able to win some of those tight three-set matches.

“That’s been a major point of emphasis for us all year — closing when it counts. We were able to come through there at the end.”

The Horned Frogs will play top-seeded Baylor at noon Saturday.

“We’ll be ready to play,” Roditi said. “The guys can’t wait to play a very good team in Baylor.”

• Women’s tennis: TCU fell to Oklahoma State 4-2 in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament in Norman, Okla.

“I was disappointed,” TCU coach Dave Borelli said. “Credit to Oklahoma State, they played well. In the Big 12 every match is tough, and we looked mentally fatigued today.”

The Horned Frogs are anticipating receiving a bid to the NCAA Championships.

“We have to move on to NCAAs,” Borelli said. “A win today probably would have guaranteed us a No. 2 seed. Hopefully we can still get a No. 2 seed somewhere, otherwise we will take a No. 3 seed and be ready to go.”

Selections will be announced at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

UTA softball sweeps

UT Arlington swept a WAC doubleheader against visiting Utah State, winning both games 1-0 by scoring a run in the bottom of the eighth.

Teri Lyles pitched a four-hitter in the opener and Callie Collins a six-hitter in the second game.

Taylor Zink drew a bases-loaded walk in the opener, and Kallan Thompson had a run-scoring single in the second game.

Briefly

• Miami basketball: Sophomore point guard Shane Larkin is leaning strongly toward turning pro and will declare for the NBA Draft unless he has a last-minute change of heart, his father said. Baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin said he spoke Friday with his son, who plans to announce his decision at a news conference Sunday.

• North Texas football: Coach Dan McCarney returned to work, seven days after undergoing a surgical procedure at a local hospital.

• Kansas basketball: Sophomore forward Hunter Mickelson transferred from Arkansas to Kansas, where he will sit out next season and have two years of eligibility remaining. Mickelson, 6-foot-10, averaged 5.5 points.

• Oklahoma State football: The Cowboys and Boise State have agreed to play a home-and-home series. The Broncos will travel to Stillwater, Okla., on Sept. 15, 2018, and Oklahoma State will make the return trip to Boise on Sept. 18, 2021.

• Pitt football: Three players were detained for use or possession of drug paraphernalia, CBS affiliate KDKA reported in Pittsburgh. The players were linebacker Eric Williams, tight end Andrew Carsell, and defensive linemen Khaynin Mosley-Smith. The players were arrested during a drug raid that netted seized 20 bags of heroin.
