ETSU remains perfect on their home court with the win Saturday

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 26, 2016) – The 57th-ranked ETSU men’s tennis team posted its second straight shutout of a Southern Conference opponent Saturday afternoon as it blanked UNCG, 7-0. With the win, the Bucs not only improve to 9-5 overall and 3-0 in conference play but they also maintain their dominance on their home court as they are 17-0 at home the past three seasons.  

Although the match ended in a 7-0 final tally, UNCG did notch doubles win over the Bucs’ top doubles duo of David Biosca (Sant Fruitos De Bage, Spain) and Rogerio Ribeiro (Sao Paulo, Brazil), 6-2. Following that defeat, however, the Bucs went a combined 6-0 to seal the match.

Biosca’s straight set win over Connor Thompson (6-4, 6-2) ultimately clinched the match for ETSU. The victory was Biosca’s tenth of the season. Robert Herrera (Barcelona, Spain) and Sebastian Yllera (Cinco Saltos, Argentina) also notched wins Saturday afternoon improve their respective records to 6-0 over the last six matches.

The Bucs will look to keep their 23-match winning streak in conference matches intact Friday when it visits Furman. First serve is scheduled for noon from Greenville, S.C.
