"Hartford is a pretty good team as evidenced by their win at No. 1," head coach Michael Starke said. "Im happy with the way we played. The Events Center is a different and unique playing experience and I thought we dealt with the different conditions quite well as a team. For me personally, after 19 years on campus, there is such a joy to be playing an historic tennis match in this fabulous facility."
The only hiccup, ironically, came at the top spot, where sophomore No. 1 Dan Hanegby (Herzliya, Israel) dropped his match in a super tiebreak. It was Hanegby's first match since earning a national ranking (No. 87) and the loss was just his seventh in 32 matches this year (25-7).
Junior Richemn Mourad (Sao Paulo, Brazil) picked up the slack with a 6-3, 6-3 win at No. 2., and freshman Alex Dobrin (Flushing, N.Y.) continued to shine with a 6-4, 6-1 win at No. 3. Dobrin is 12-1 in his last 13 matches, and owns a team-best 16-3 dual match record (21-5 overall).
The Bearcats next travel to Long Island to face conference rival Stony Brook on April 9.
