CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas - The UAB men's tennis team won four of six singles matches to take a 4-3 win against Memphis in the 2004 HEB Collegiate Team Championships.

UAB's Sanzaruz Zaman clinched the match for the Blazers with a three-set win over Memphis' Marten Tamla at the No. 5 position. Zaman went up early by winning the first set, 7-5. Tamla claimed the second set, 6-3, but Zaman fought back to win the third set, 6-4, to take the match.

Memphis took the lead early with wins at No.1 and 3 doubles to take a 1-0 lead into the singles portion of the match, but UAB used wins at No. 1, 2, 4, and 5 to complete a comeback and take the match 4-3. Juniors Alex Bucewicz and Mark Finnegan picked up wins at No. 3 and 6 singles, respectively, to try to keep the Tigers from falling to the Blazers for the second time in two weeks. Memphis fell to UAB in the consolation match at the C-USA Inter Conference Tournament last weekend.

Memphis (6-6, 1-3) will return home to host Indiana State and Charlotte, Mar. 9-10 before travelling to Texas for four matches against four different ranked opponents.
