Men’s tennis loses at UNC Greensboro 5-2

Contact: John Hartrick (

GREENSBORO, N.C.—Binghamton men’s tennis (8-9) ran into a buzzsaw and dropped its final spring break match to host UNC Greensboro (11-2), 5-2, Saturday afternoon at the UNCG Tennis Facility. The Spartans captured the doubles point before winning four of the six singles matches.

“It was a tough match,” head coach Adam Cohen said. “I thought our guys kept hanging in there ... we just didn’t pull it out today. Give UNC credit - they played good. We’re looking forward to playing some outdoor tennis next week at home for the first time this season.”

Freshman No. 1 Sid Hazarika continued his stellar rookie campaign with a three-set win at the top spot. Hazarika improved to 15-2 overall this spring. Junior No. 5 Ruben Haggai earned BU’s other win - also a three-set triumph.

Earlier, the top tandem of senior Bastian Bornkessel and sophomore Ismael Dinia posted an 8-6 win at the top doubles position.

Binghamton hosts America East rivals Stony Brook and Hartford on April 6 at the Bearcats Sports Complex.
