LINCOLN, Neb. - The University of Louisville men's tennis team defeated Nebraska 4-2 Saturday afternoon at the Nebraska Tennis Center.
The Nebraska indoor courts were polar opposite of our courts - they were fast and in a bubble," said UofL coach Rex Ecarma. "Their crowd was really loud and into the match. This was a really good road win under tough conditions. This showed some real growth for us and heading into a big weekend at home."
Louisville began the match by taking the doubles point. Nebraska's Dusty Boyer and Andrew Dzulynsky defeated Luis Elizondo and Jeffrey Brown 6-2 at the three-spot, but Sebastian Stiefelmeyer and Van Damrongsri quickly evened the score with a 6-3 victory over Marc Herrmann and Beau Treyz at No.2. The point came down to court No. 1 where Albert Wagner and Chris Simich outlasted Brandon Videtich and Bradford Zitsch 6-5 (7-4) to put the Cards up 1-0.
In singles action, Nebraska evened the score when Boyer defeated Stiefelmeyer 6-2, 6-2 at the two-spot. The Cardinals answered on court No. 3 where Alex Gornet beat Dzulynski 6-4, 6-2. Luis Elizondo increased the lead to 3-1 with his 6-1, 6-5 (8-6) win over Treyz at No. 5. The Huskers cut the lead to 3-2 When V. Stavropoulos edged Michael Lippens 6-4, 6-5 (7-4) at the six spot. Albert Wagner's 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 victory over Hermann at No. 1 sealed the win for the Cardinals."
UofL (6-2) will return to the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center to face Virginia Tech on Feb. 21 at 4 p.m.
