(Kansas City, Missouri-AP) -- Top-seeded Baylor won the Big 12 Conference men's tennis tournament, beating Number 3 seed Oklahoma State 4-0 at Kansas City's Plaza Tennis Center.

Baylor, the two-time defending champion, won the doubles point and three singles matches, including a win by Benedikt Dorsch, a sophomore ranked No. 2 nationally.

Sunday's win was the 16th consecutive win for Baylor (25-1) since a 4-0 loss to top-ranked Illinois in the finals of the ITA Indoor Championships on Feb. 22.

Oklahoma State ended the regular season at 16-4 overall. The Cowboys advanced with a 4-2 upset of second-seeded Texas, making this the first tournament since Big 12 play began in 1997 that neither a Longhorns' men's nor women's team played in the finals.
