BU men's tennis falls to Stony Brook 4-3

STONY BROOK, N.Y. -- Binghamton men's tennis (12-7) lost a narrow 4-3 decision at America East rival Stony Brook (14-4) Friday afternoon. The teams split the six singles matches but the host Seawolves captured the pivotal doubles point to open the match. Stony Brook now will likely receive the top seed for the upcoming conference tournament, with the defending champion Bearcats likely relegated to the No. 2 seed.

Sophomore Sven Vloedgraven and freshman Gilbert Wong teamed for a win at No. 1 doubles before winning their singles matches at Nos. 1 and 3 respectively. Freshman Alexandre Haggai also earned a singles win at the fourth spot.

Vloedgraven improved to 24-9 overall in singles, 15-4 in duals. Wong is 30-7 overall, 16-3 in duals.

Binghamton will host Marist on Thursday before departing for Yale and the America East Championship on April 24-26.
