BU men's tennis shines at season-opening Bloomsburg Invitational
Bearcats win 14 of 16 singles matches against Bucknell, Villanova and host Huskies

BLOOMSBURG, Pa. - Binghamton men's tennis opened its 2006-07 campaign with a strong showing at the non-scoring Bloomsburg Invitational, Saturday and Sunday. The Bearcats, who made the trip with five newcomers for first year head coach Adam Cohen, went 14-2 in singles play and 6-3 in doubles matches.

"It was a productive weekend," Cohen said. "Faisal (Mohamed) and Pierre (Clavel) were unbeaten in singles and doubles play (6-0) and our other two freshmen, Moshe (Levy) and Justin (Salkin) went 5-1 overall. Our guys played hard. We've got some work to do in doubles to be ready for next weekend."
