"It was a very spirited and well-fought match," head coach Michael Starke said. "We played well and showed promise against a team that I think will be ranked in the top-5 in the region. I think this match will set us up to play good tennis the rest of the weekend."
In the highlight match, sophomore No. 1 Dan Hanegby (Herzliya, Israel) rolled over former Binghamton standout Akshay Rao, 6-1, 6-4. Playing in front of a strong Binghamton alumni contingent, Hanegby raised his record to 13-3 with the surprisingly-easy victory. Hanegby ended the fall campaign ranked 14th in the Northeast, while Rao was 10th.
"Dan played unbelievable," Starke said. "It was a great exhibition of tennis that was certainly worth viewing."
