PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Binghamton men's tennis (6-3) dropped the doubles point before roaring back to win the first four completed singles matches and seize a 4-3 victory over host Brown (9-4) Saturday afternoon. The Bears were ranked No. 3 in the Northeast Region last season and were the Ivy League runnersup.

Senior Moshe Levy clinched the team victory with a 7-5, 7-6 win over Jonathan Pearlman at No. 1 singles. He improved to 14-8 overall.

"It was a great team victory in a very tough place to play," head coach Adam Cohen said.
