Tiger Tennis Improves to 8-9 Overall
March 19, 2005
The Memphis men's tennis team improved to 8-9 overall and 3-1 in Conference USA with a 6-1 victory over Southern Miss in Mobile, Ala., Saturday afternoon. With the win, Memphis has now won a season-best three consecutive matches heading into a Sunday (March 27th) home match against Georgia State.
No scores for the individual matches were available, but the Tigers won the doubles point with victories at No. 1 and 3 doubles. The No. 2 team of Alex Bucewicz and Marten Tamla did not get to finish their match at No. 2. Southern Miss answered back with a win at No. 1 singles, but then the Tigers swept the 2 through 6 singles matches to improve to 2-0 on the weekend.
Memphis will host Georgia State, March 27th, on the U of M campus courts. That match is slated to begin at noon. Admission is free.
