RICHMOND, Va.—Binghamton men’s tennis (2-3) was defeated by host VCU 7-0 Saturday afternoon at the Thalhimer Tennis Center. The Rams, 12-time CAA champions, captured the doubles point before winning all six singles matches.
The Bearcats played close matches at No. 1 and No. 3 doubles, losing 8-6 at each position. A strong VCU lineup controlled the singles matches, however, with sophomore Ruben Haggai the lone Bearcat to push his match to a third set. Haggai won the opening set over Camill Salomon, 6-4 before falling 6-2, 11-9.
