VESTAL, N.Y.—After playing 17 straight matches on the road to begin the spring season, Binghamton men’s tennis (10-9) celebrated its much-anticipated home opener with a pair of lopsided wins over conference foes Saturday at the Bearcats Sports Complex. Binghamton defeated Stony Brook 5-1 and then toppled Hartford 7-0.

Against the Seawolves in the early match, BU grabbed the doubles point and then dropped just three sets in singles. A few hours later, head coach Adam Cohen juggled his lineup and the Bearcats surrendered just 10 games in the six singles matches and Binghamton rolled to the shutout.

Freshman No. 1 Sid Hazarika, the reigning America East Player of the Week, won both his singles matches to improve to 17-2 overall. Sophomore Ismael Dinia and junior Ruben Haggai also won twice in singles with Haggai raising his record to 16-9 overall.

The Bearcats host Bucknell Sunday at 11 a.m. The scheduled match against Lafayette has been cancelled.
