MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The University of Memphis men's tennis team (5-8, 1-1 C-USA) won its second straight match, using victories in five of the six singles matches to close out a 6-1 victory over Tennessee Tech, Sunday.
"We are starting to compete for every point and having fun," Head Coach Paul Goebel said. "It was a good weekend for us and we look forward to a tough conference opponent next Friday in UAB."
Memphis won two of the three doubles matches to open the competition, falling 8-3 at No. 1, but winning 8-4 at both No. 2 and 3. The Tigers then used wins at No. 1, 3, 4 , 5 and 6 singles to close out their second straight win and their fifth of the season. The Tigers will now step back in to conference play when they travel to Birmingham, Ala., Friday, to face UAB. UAB was in the top 75 national rankings until a couple of weeks ago and is looking to work its way back in.
