WEST POINT, N.Y.—Binghamton men’s tennis (6-9) won four of the six singles matches to knock off host Army 4-3 Saturday afternoon outdoors at the Malek Tennis Center. The teams played singles first and after BU clinched the team win, the Black Knights took the doubles point with two wins in the pairs.
Army (9-8) had beaten Stony Brook 4-3 last month, giving the Bearcats a good barometer against their America East rival.
The Bearcats were set to take on Ivy League member Yale later Saturday evening.
