Men’s tennis sweeps Temple

After falling out of the national rankings, the Binghamton men’s tennis team swept Temple, 7-0.

The Bearcats, who had appeared at No. 75 in the March 11 Intercollegiate Tennis Association poll, hosted the Owls on Friday and lost just one singles set. They have won 10 of their last 13 matches.

Sophomore Eliott Hureau posted the most dominating win, a 6-0, 6-1 beat-down of Temple freshman Filip Stipcic. Hureau also joined forces with classmate Janik Burri to secure the doubles point at No. 3 doubles.

Sophomores Sid Hazarika and Alexander Maisin and juniors Robin Lesage and Florian van Kann all won their respective singles matches in straight sets, while freshman Thomas Caputo earned a win in three.

The Bearcats are set to return to action with three matches at UNC-Wilmington later this week. Binghamton will open play against No. 62 Central Florida at 10 a.m. on March 20.
