TAMPA - The No. 55 Bulls picked up their game in singles and rallied past Florida A&M, 4-3, on Saturday afternoon at the USF Varsity Courts.
Oliver Pramming, Guillermo De Vilchez and Everth Dzib posted wins while Ravi Patel delivered the match-clinching point with a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Admire Mushonga in the No. 4 spot.
Head coach Matt Hill was excited about USF's ability to respond after the Rattlers took the doubles point to open the match.
"We knew before the match started that this was going to be a real test for us," Hill said. "I feel like the guys handled adversity extremely well."
The Bulls finished their three-match home stand with a 2-1 record. USF plays its next two matches in Tallahassee March 2-3 against Texas and Florida State.
"I'm really proud of the team's effort and excited to get back on the training court in the next two weeks," Hill said.
