VESTAL, N.Y.—Binghamton men’s tennis doubles tandem Alexander Maisin and Aswin Nambi has earned a final ITA national ranking of No. 83 - the first time in BU’s Division I tenure that a doubles pair has been ranked at year’s end.
Maisin, a sophomore, and Nambi, a junior, were also ranked 10th in the Northeast. Their signature win was an 8-5 triumph over 32nd-ranked Jones and Heugas of VCU on February 28. That top duo from VCU advanced to the second round of the NCAA Championship.
Maisin and Nambi won 11 matches together in the spring, including victories in BU’s matches against No. 51 Central Florida, No. 58 Penn State, Penn and Buffalo.
After yet another championship season, the men’s tennis team earned a return position among the top-10 teams in the Northeast. The Bearcats were ranked No. 10 - the sixth consecutive season BU has been among the elite teams in the region. Binghamton (16-11) won five of its last six matches en route to a seventh straight America East championship. The title was the program’s 10th in 13 years of America East membership. During the seven-year run under head coach Adam Cohen, BU surrendered just six team points in 14 tournament matches.
The Bearcats will return four starting singles players as they make their debut in the Mid-American Conference in 2014-15.
