After a dominant round of singles matches, the SMU Mustangs (6-4 Overall) defeated the Wisconsin Badgers in Lubbock, Texas on Saturday to earn a fifth victory in their last six matches played.
“Great 4-3 win,” said Kati Gyulai, tennis head coach. “We are pleased with the outcome. Job well done.”
All four of SMU’s points were earned in the singles portion of the competition.
The Mustangs also claimed one 8-3 doubles victory from the highly ranked combination of Edyta Cieplucha and Yana Erkeeva.
Wisconsin claimed the first three points of the match by winning two out of three doubles matches, setting the Mustangs up for a tremendous comeback in the singles round.
SMU will hope to keep this strong play alive on March 8 as the Mustangs will host their second conference opponent of the season, Tulsa, at noon.
