Immediate Release: May 2, 2010
In a rematch of the 2008 America East championship, also won by BU, the Bearcats captured the doubles point before winning the first three completed singles matches in workmanlike fashion.
"UMBC played very well," head coach Adam Cohen said. "We had to play our best to win today. We were lucky to win the doubles point. That proved pivotal. Had we lost that point, we might have still been out there trying to win because UMBC had won first sets in the other three singles matches. I'm very proud of our guys. They put in the hard work every day and they have been rewarded for it."
Sven Vloedgraven rolled to a 6-0,
6-1 win at first singles. The reigning conference player of the
year is now 38-8 overall, 23-3 in duals. Earlier, Vloedgraven
and junior Gilbert Wong posted an 8-4
win at the top doubles spot, where they are 21-4 overall.
Junior Arnav Jain won his singles match at the fifth position with a 6-2, 7-5 triumph. Jain is still unbeaten in duals (23-0) and is a team-best 34-3 overall.
Freshman Ruben Devos clinched the championship with a 6-2, 6-3 win at sixth singles, setting off a subdued celebration for the six-time conference champs.
