Texas A&M Men's Tennis defeats Buffalo in NCAA Tournament First Round

Texas A&M Men's Tennis defeats Buffalo in NCAA Tournament First Round

They've had a successful year facing Pac-12 teams and we have not fared very well against Pac-12 teams here in the past.

No. 17 MI ended Valparaiso's season Friday, beating the Crusaders 4-0 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Palo Alto, Calif.

After a first-round loss to OR at the Pac-12 Championships, coach Stella Sampras Webster said the key in this tournament is preparation for the intense environment. "They beat us on 50-50 balls and that's just plain hustle and hard work", Penn head coach Karin Brower Corbett said. I have total respect for them.

For freshman Ena Shibahara, sophomore Gabby Andrews and redshirt freshman Jada Hart, the NCAA Tournament is a new experience. We got a little bit of a lead, but they came back and almost tied it up. Junior attack Cam Ziegler (Carlsbad, Calif.) saved the ball on the sideline and passed it off to classmate Kyle Cornell (Darien, Conn.), who found Forsberg on the right side.

"Anything can happen because it is one and done", Fleming said.

Despite the frustrating result, the season spotlighted some major positives for a Penn team that met challenges unlike few others in Corbett's tenure. After winning the doubles point, FSU's Rana Roop Bhullar, Alex Knaff and Jose Garcia all won in straight sets to take the match for the Seminoles.

Starting strong in doubles, as well as minimizing errors, will be key in the matches this weekend, according to Fleming and Hart. "That was really critical for our team", Timchal said. "I love this team so much and I'm so proud of how we executed today".




The Bulls defeated Duke 4-0 in the match before Georgia's. The Dolphins had an immediate reply as they won the next draw, went down, and equalized with a goal from Erica Beal at 28:01.

Palina Dubavets leads UCSB, playing No. 1 in singles and doubles with a combined record of 25-16.

A deadlocked third quarter would break wide open for the Bulldogs in the final three minutes, starting with a man-up goal from Sharpe that would tie the senior at the top of the national rankings (9 man-up goals in 2017).

If the Bruins defeat the Gauchos, they face the victor of Long Island University Brooklyn and No. 12 Pepperdine's match.

The Quakers scored four consecutive over the next 10 minutes to take a 5-2 advantage.

The Tigers will face No. 37 Florida State on Saturday for a chance to advance to the NCAA Team Championships in Athens, Ga. "And I think that's really great for the future - the two of them [Barry and Rosenzweig] really stepped up and brought us back into this game", Corbett said. "Our guys our going to have to elevate their play if they want to advance". It's a special feeling.
